There are two possible problems here.
1. The cable that is connected to your t.v. has come undone or is loose enough that it isn't making a good connection or has a short in it.
Solution for this: Unplug the cable from both ends and reconnect, then check picture. If there is still no picture, replace cable. Check again. If the cable looks just like the audio cables, you can use one of them. If the problem still exists go to problem #2.

2. the video card on the screen is out (worse case senerio). On the back of the Vizo there are several ways to hook a device into your T.V. If it were me and I didn't want to replace the card, which is on board and costly, I would try to buy an adapter to get my viewing source (Cable, DVD, Satellite, etc) into a different input and then try that one. If no inputs work with the video then you don't have much choice, but to repair. I caution people with Plasmas to just replace it with a larger one, since the repairs will cost close to a new one and you will eventually replace it anyway. If it is an LCD, you might be ahead of the game by repairing it by a few hundred dollars and it will last a good while if you get a reputable repair shop. Check your warranty first and then move forward from there to see if the cost of repair is cheaper than replacement. (replacement is still likely to be cheaper).

Screen on my 2007 vizio flatscreen tv went black but the sound still works. i called the only repairman in town and he says not worth fixing.too expensive and vizio not a good tv. what's you opinion.


I think Vizio's are decent televisions, you may have been unlucky. Saying that, I do agree with the repairman,, by the time you get the television fixed the bill will be close to the price of a brand new televsion.

Sounds like you either have a faulty LCD panel tab, failed LCD driver board, LCD/t-con panel bad connection, or a bad t-con. You will need to get a diagnoses to be sure.

Solutions (2) Best Solution That little fella is only turned off by unplugging it. If all those little lights in America could be turned off we could do with one less nuclear power plant. If unplugging it is not an option, my wife's solution is to cover it with a piece of black tape.

remove all screws on the back of the tv, carefully pull off back cover. you will see two circuit boards one on the left (Power) and one on the right (Video) on the Video board there is a small plug on the right side with a yellow, white and red wire going into a small white connector. the red wire is what controls the orange light on the front. now that the plug is pulled turn it over and you should see a small white plastic piece that holds each metal connector on the end of the wires in. pry this piece of plastic up for the red wire and pull at the same time, the wire will come out of the connector. now tape the metal connector with electrical tape and tuck it behind something or tape it to the chassis. plug your connector back in. put the rear cover back on. now your tv will only show the vizio logo in white when you have the power on. If you wish to disable the logo for both orange and white just disconnect the white plug completely.

VIZIO TV Black screen. Cannot turn off TV without unplugging.


I had a similar problem after having a Vizio for 2 and a half years. I left the room for a minute, i came back and the screen went black. I didnt hear an arcing sound though. There was still power to the unit and you could see that the back light was working, just no picture, no sound, and you couldn't use any of the buttons. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. It would then start up, with the Vizio logo going from orange to white, and then do the same thing all over, no pic or sound. I would check the ceramic fuse first on the board that gets power from the plug.

HOW I FIXED MINE: I ordered a new "main PCB" from tigerdirectparts.com (you can also use searspartsdirect.com). This is the circuit board with all of the inputs on it (hdmi, cable, etc.) I opened it up, disconnected the old one, put in a new one and now it works fine.I used both serial numbers on the board to search for it online. It cost me $144 to do it, but that's better than $450 for a new TV. My tv is the vx32l hdtv10a. I hope that helps.

Vizio wont turn on!!


I have this problem. Bought at Costco. Called them and was transferred to Vizio. TV still under warranty, so they are supposed to get me another TV. Mine is only a little over a year old. The one they are giving me is NOT new, but refurbished. I'm not happy about this, but what can I do? Apparently, this IS a KNOWN problem.

Vizio TV will not turn on


Sounds like your power board is bad. contact vizio support and let them know. some vizio parts have lifetime warranties with free service call. see if it is covered, and hope it is. if not, i would start with the power board, you should have an led, light, on the power board that should be on, if it is not, the power board is not on. you can see this light without opening the TV, just turn off lights in the room and view from the back of the tv. hope this helps.
