I think you may be in trouble here....

It MIGHT be the lamp's power supply board, but I suspect you actually have a bad bulb in it and it's causing the flicker.

The power supply is expensive enough, but the lamp would be Ungodly Expensive to replace.....

And don't try to replace ONE lamp, that comes as an assembly.

Contact Visio for replacement parts.....

Thanks

Chances are its not caps that are causing this issue, that isn't a symptom of failing filters. If your comfortable around higher DC voltages I can give you some information on what to test if your not take it in for repair however expect the bill to start at 100 dollars and go up from there

Ihave sound, but no picture.


There is a problem with the video logic board. You could take it to a repair shop or diagnose it yourself with a multi-meter looking for blown up capacitors/burnt parts.

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

If the backlights for the screen do come on and you also have 12v and 5v feed the main board then it does sound like the mainboard will need to be replaced.

Vizio 42" lcd powers up with sound only - no picture


It sounds to me that the unit has a faulty inverter board which could be due to an overheated/bulged capacitor. I would send in a claim on it to the factory if it is still under warranty.
