Question about Vizio Gallevia GV42LF 42 in. LCD Television
Once you turn on the power there's no picture nor sound but there's light from inside the TV. The TV just won't respond to the control . The manual control buttons on the side works for the menu but still you cannot adjust it from there .
I EMAILED VIZIO ABOUT MY PROBLEM. THEY RESPONDED IN 3 DAYS. THE TECH AND I THEN TRADED A COUPLE OF EMAILS. HE CONFIRMED THE INFO ABOUT THE TV WITH ME. HE EMAILED ME THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM AND PART NUMBER. IT WAS THE MAIN BOARD. I ORDERED THE PART AT VIZPARTS.COM FOR ABOUT 180.00. INSTALLED IT MYSELF AND THE TV WORKS FINE. I WISH IT HAD BEEN UNDER WARRANTY BUT IT WAS 18 MONTHS OLD AND THE WARRANTY WAS FOR 12 MONTHS.

I'm now running my fourth main board, including the original in a five year-old Gallevia. The replacements are reconditioned modules that are failing after only a few weeks to a few months in service. I've purchased two and exchanged one. They have to know they have a problem. My tech guy says he sees it all the time.

... the CPU on the main board is not initializing properly do to a known VIZIO power supply problem. If it is out of warrenty it's out of pocket repair. I am in the same boat. Sounds like a class action suite for Vizio soon or later because all their models have similar issues and their support is unresponsive. THE FIX SHOULD BE A RECALL FOR DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS *FOR FREE* This will teach them to sale half baked products in the US below competition. Best thing is to buy a Sony for no headaches, nothing Vizio!
