Question about Vizio VW46LFHDTV10A 46 in. LCD TV
Hi,after playing for awhile (1-3 days) the right half of screen will go black?
Sorry long delay on seeing this - I forgot I had a Fixya account! Unfortunately this is the symptom of a dead or dying Inverter - LCD screens have two sets of Inverters - left and right. Both are high voltage (i.e. usually far higher than the input voltage) and are used to turn on the back-lighting in LCD displays. the lights themselves are much light Fluorescant tubes - which is why a White screen is so White. What you are experiencing is that the Right side inverter is pretty much end of life - it could be a general fault with the unit in manufacture or just a fault that has developed. It could also be the mainboard itself not supplying the correct signal to the inverter circuitry to turn it on. It could indeed also be the backlight itself.

I agree your screen is cracked. It's smooth to the touch because you're not actually touching the LCD section of the screen, just the protective coating. The advantage of owning an LCD TV over plasma... you can replace the screen either by going to the manufacturer or some place like e-bay. It's not a difficult thing to do if you take your time and pay attention to the details.

I just got quoted $705 from the Vizio certified repair partner. Nice. Nice and way too expensive. I may as well buy a new TV instead. It certainly won't be a Vizio. They told me a I needed a Y systainer, C systainer and a right-driver board.
Lame. I'm trying to find something local.

This is called the pop of death! If you call vizio they will ask you if you heard a pop, this is a common issue and unless your under warrenty your looking at 916$ to fix it. (assuming you have no sound! If you do its 430$ plus tax for parts and repair. You can buy a used one on ebay for that price!
I have the parts numbers if you want them!
Call vizio if you have had this system for under a yr the will fix it free!
As for me my 50 and 42 inch had this issue and well I am out of warrenty.. I hate vizio lol!
