The backlight is powered by its own supply (although it may receive input from the main supply) and it sounds like the main supply or one of its outputs has failed disabling the video and sound processing.

Hi
It sounds to me like you have a bad main board.

But it you may be better of by buying new TV
those boards run over $300.00.
You know the prices of a new TV's !!
Good Luck
Vizio have a parts distributor- Vance Baldwin you may give them a call, or call Vizio to find out if they have anybody else.

Vizio Model SV320SVT powers on, after Vizio splash screen it goes blank. Power stays on, but no backlight on screen.


Yes its very repairable as long as the logo stays white you can assume the main boards good. I would recomend contacting the people at www.tvrepairworld.com by hitting the contact us button from their website. They will be able to assist you in finding out whats happening with the set for free. They have most parts available as well.

Vizio L37 37 in. HDTV LCD TV


I had a similar problem with my Vizio Model VX37L HDTV and replaced the main board myself for $160.00 which I purchased new on Ebay at ShopJimmy.com. The symptoms all of sudden started by the screen going blank except for a rectangular banner across the top that resembled a UPC code only garbled. No sound. I actually had to pull the power cord to turn off the TV. I was able to turn on the set normally but the TV menus did not come up. Since the TV was 19 months old and no extended warranty I checked with Vizio support and Sam's Club but no extended warranty=no luck. I did have an estimate for repair for $900 from a company Vizio recommended but a new one goes for less now. About 42 screws and a half a dozen pin connectors I replaced the main board. The set is working again better than ever. I don't know if I call my self fortunate or not since I did have a problem after only 19 months.
