Question about Vizio L30WGU 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
Have a vizio 30"... its about a year and a half old. Just today it starting acting up. after about 15 or 20 minutes of being on, the screen would just go black. The sound would remain on. the unit is not hot or making any strange noises. Have been told it could be my cable box (comcast), so I resent it as I was told.... Still happens. Any suggestion ??? Don't want to just replace it without trying all options. Thank you to all.
Vizio service said problem was in inverter board and they had no replacement part. The did offer me a new 32" TV for $300. I took old TV apart and confirmed the inverter board (which drives the lamps) shut off after a few seconds despite the correct power coming from the power board.

To make sure it's the cable box, hook up a DVD player and see if the TV still blacks out. If the TV still blacks out, then TV is faulty. When the TV has blacked out, can you still see outlines of the images. To see this, get really close to TV. If you press Menu, you will see the outline of the menus options box. If this is the case, Inverters are faulty. Otherwise, Main board is the most likely culprit.
