SOURCE: Vizio BV47L FHDTV10A has a blown power supply

It is very easy to replace the power supply.

- Remove the stand
- Remove the speaker
- Remove the back cover.
- Remove 4 wires connector on the psu.
- Remove the 6 screws on the power supply and replace it with a new one.

Hope it will help.

Change the batteries in your remote. If your cat was laying on a button it could have drained them.

Here's tip - you can use your camera on your cell phone to see the IR signal coming out of your remote. Point the remote at your cam and press "On" or any button. You should see a bright flash with every key stroke.

SOURCE: Vizio service menu

I found this on another answer board. I've only worked on a couple of these sets (whole board replacement in both cases) so I don't know if this is going to work. But it couldn't hoit!

1. Turn The TV off.
2. Press and hold CH + and CH - buttons on the TV simultaneously.
3. Press and release the POWER button on the TV, then release the CH + and CH - buttons.
4. Press MENU button on the remote. The regular menu comes up, and the set displays an "F" (for "factory") in the bottom right corner of the menu.
5. Press and hold the MENU button for few seconds and the Service Menu will be displayed.

There wasn't any mention of how to exit service mode. Hope this works for you!

SOURCE: Vizio GV47L - screen went blank after fizzle pop sound

I had the same problem. I replaced the Main Board and it fixed the problem! It was not difficult to do at all as I am a novice at best. The main board has connections to audio, back light power supply and front control panel. It has the HDMI, Composite connections, etc attached as well. Total repair time including putting the back on was about 30-40 min. I obtained the part the part from VIZPARTS.COM and it was about $200 including 2 day air shipping. Good Luck!

Vizio tv E470VL. Replaced power board and no change. Front vizio light will glow at bottom but tv will not come on. Please help.

Power board isn't the issue. Its the digital board and/or bad panel. As much as I love to repair things, Vizio is one company who isnt worth it. I have seen 14month old TVs with bad panels. The E470VL is a known problem TV. The panel is probably shorted and its keeping the digital board in protection which is keeping the power supply from starting. Its really frustrating. I wish Vizio would stop making such sub-par equipment.

Vizio M420SL LED Smart TV boots on just fine showing the Vizio logo in center of screen then turns to this image. None of the side buttons work after I turn it on.Have to unplug tv to turn it off.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
