Hello. If you really cannot even hear the sound, that's the problem with power supply. This shouldn't cost too much to repair. Call to your local repair center or if your warranty is still valid call the repair center listed in the warranty list. Good luck.

If the that is the case, please check the main fuse of the tv. It is probably on open state. Replacing that can fix the issue. Meanwhile, you may try to unplug the power cable of the unit and let it sit overnight then check if it fixes it.

Please unplug TV from AC outlet for couple of minutes and replug back in and check.
If problem still exist then it could be either power supply or back light inverter board.

Vizio GV42L 42inch LCD/HDTV

there are several possibilities. first if the unit comes on and the "VIZIO" light turns white, but no picture or sound, then the main control board is most likely the issue. could be the LCD control board(s) depending on model one or two. and ultimately could be the power supply on the upper side....if the "VIZIO" light does NOT turn white, the whole power supply unit is out. after that, would have to scope the circuits to find out. Seems that the control board is the most common and tends to happen on many different sizes. new board will be around $350.00. Might get lucky and find a used one, but it MUST be EXACT part or it wont work right. if you dont find one or want to sell yours for parts, id be interested in the screen. can reach me at thanks, keith

The receiver for the remote is on the right side. Do you have something in front of it? My remote will not work if there is an object on that side of the TV.
