Question about Vizio GV47LF Television

Vizio GV47LFHDTV10A No Video No Sound after "POP"!

No video, no sound after ominous "pop" inside tv. Can power on, but only gives VIZIO logo to white and LED Control Panel lit up and stays lit.....cannot turn off using on/off control...have to unplug.Any ideas?? This sounds like a relatively common problem with this tv.

    I had the same exact problem. My wife remembers it doing the same thing a couple of months ago. Back then I was able to restart it after unplugging it, but this time it looks fatal. Bought it from Costco. Vizio only warranties for one year. Costco extends it to two years. Wouldn't you know that mine quits at two years and two weeks. Vizio does not repair their own TVs (go figure) and their referral is a joke. Pretty sad that Vizio draws you in with the low price and then leaves you hanging when things go wrong. Not a very good way to build your reputation. Never again.

Change the main board first. if you're lucky this will fix the problem if not your inverter is dead.

The main board has failed. Replace the main board will fix the problem.

By the way, where did you buy the TV? If you have bought it from Costco then try to give them a call to see if it still under warranty.

Hope this will help.

SOURCE: Vizio TV 2006 vx32Lhdtv doesnt work.

I had the same problem after having a Vizio for 2 and a half years. I left the room for a minute, i came back and the screen went black. There was still power to the unit and you could see that the back light was working, just no picture, no sound, and you couldn't use any of the buttons. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. It would then start up, with the Vizio logo going from orange to white, and then do the same thing all over, no pic or sound.

HOW I FIXED MINE:Look through the back vents for a white light to make sure the backlight still works. I ordered a new "main PCB" from tigerdirectparts.com (you can also use searspartsdirect.com). This is the circuit board with all of the inputs on it (hdmi, cable, etc.) I opened it up, disconnected the old one, put in a new one and now it works fine. I used both serial numbers on the board to search for it online. It cost me $144 to do it, but that's better than $450 for a new TV. My tv is the vx32l hdtv10a. I hope that helps.

For me the part number was either (depending on the vendor) : 0171 2272 2174 or it was 3632 0212 0150. Check your circuit and see if any of those numbers match up.

Did you check out the power supply for proper operation since both the audio and video are gone? If PS is good then the problem may very well be on main board.

Vizio tv sv420m need help


Sure that the other boards you used were any good? If so, then try the Power supply board since the other boards of your set other than the main board specialize in the video aspects. Since you have no audio the only two boards that could account for no audio are the main board and the PS board which powers everything in the set.

Solutions (2) Best Solution That little fella is only turned off by unplugging it. If all those little lights in America could be turned off we could do with one less nuclear power plant. If unplugging it is not an option, my wife's solution is to cover it with a piece of black tape.

remove all screws on the back of the tv, carefully pull off back cover. you will see two circuit boards one on the left (Power) and one on the right (Video) on the Video board there is a small plug on the right side with a yellow, white and red wire going into a small white connector. the red wire is what controls the orange light on the front. now that the plug is pulled turn it over and you should see a small white plastic piece that holds each metal connector on the end of the wires in. pry this piece of plastic up for the red wire and pull at the same time, the wire will come out of the connector. now tape the metal connector with electrical tape and tuck it behind something or tape it to the chassis. plug your connector back in. put the rear cover back on. now your tv will only show the vizio logo in white when you have the power on. If you wish to disable the logo for both orange and white just disconnect the white plug completely.

Picture went out on p50hdm Vizio Plazma tv after loud POP


It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.
