SOURCE: vizio flat screen tv
I have run into this before with many vizios. Your problem most likely is with the power supply. You can just try to unplug the TV and plug it back it. This most likely wont do anything but it is always worth the college try. Leave it unplugged for about 15 sec. If nothing works i recomend looking into the return policy from the place you bought it from. If you didnt purchase an extended warranty then you have a year from the manufacturer and that warranty will cover a problem like this. I do suggest taking your tv to a licensed technician with a problem with this. I dont recomend doing exploratory surgery on this TV. One question for you. Is this a plasma or lcd tv and does it make any clicking or tapping noises?

An earlier post of the smaller model of this with the same problem said to remove the metal cover over the power supply.
I have the 26MF231D and it worked great afterward (even though you can't mount it)
Here is how you remove the cover.

Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. Or, something simple like a blown fuse inside the TV.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.
You have a few choices:
1. You can again try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, schematics, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15 by searching on the internet with the part number.
4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.
