No picture no sound amber light on

There's no 3.2 v off U33 (main module) I wasn't able to find AMC1117, So I used a Radio shack LM317T. this supplies 3.3v to video processor and associated circuit. this won't blow fuse.

Sound but no picture

Dim the lights in the room, grab a bright flash light. Turn on the set and shine the light on the screen. Do you see a faint picture? If you do, you have a backlight problem. Let me know what you find

Tv completeley went out , first the picture then sound. took it to a tv repair shop and the power board checks out ok can not find the problem so he is not chargeing me wants me to pick it up

On the Vizio LCD TVs there are only two boards: Main board and power board.
There is also the screen. If they checked the power board then all that is left is the main board or screen. If the power light stills changes color when ther power button is pressed you may have a bad screen (costs more than the TV if even available)
If no lights come on the main board can be tried to see if it fixes it, the main board will cost $200-$400.
These screens go bad so I'll bet the shop did not want to try the main board as they can not return it after buying it
Buy a new set is my advice
Hope this helps

Vizio vx42L no power will not come on just went

First place to check will be the power supply, look for blown fuse, burnt parts, bad caps with bulging tops. Check for DC voltages, you should have 5, 12, and 24vdc at the power supply DC output connectors.
Parts: check

Vizio vx42l hdtv back light

If backlight went out then sound should still work. Are there any indicator lights to show power is coming on anymore? Try unplugging for 30 seconds, hit power button a few times, then plug back in and try to turn on. This drains any capacitors of power to attempt to reset (basically clearing the TV's throat).

Can also try something on a different input. If current input is composite, S-video, or component, try using DVI or HDMI connection as this uses a different board in the TV. If that fixes it, then at least you can try to replace one board instead of entire tv. :)
