G'Day!

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.


I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

SOURCE: VIZIO TV Black screen. Cannot turn off TV without unplugging.

I had a similar 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. I didnt hear an arcing sound though. 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. I would check the ceramic fuse first on the board that gets power from the plug.

HOW I FIXED MINE: 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.

Vizio model M320SR has black screen but has sound. V logo appears when tv is first turned on then goes away.


If there is no video but you have audio or you have intermittent video:
  1. Press and hold the mute button on the VIZIO remote for 3 to 5 seconds. Some VIZIO TV's have a "Mute Screen" feature that turns the screen off if you are streaming an audio application (Pandora, Spotify, etc) and don't want the screen on. To activate/deactivate this feature, hold the mute button for 3-5 seconds.
  2. Turn the TV off and unplug it. Press the power button on the side of the TV for 30 seconds. Let go of the power button and plug the TV back in.
  3. Check the connections between the TV and device. Ensure the cord is connected securely to the TV and the source device.
  4. Try a second device. (Example: If the issue happens on a Cable/Satellite box, try using a DVD player or gaming system to see if the issue occurs there.)
    1. If the issue occurs on multiple devices there is an issue with your TV. Please contact Support by Clicking Contact at the bottom of the page or give us a call Monday - Friday from 7am - 11pm Central Time or Sat. & Sun. from 9am to 6pm Central Time at 855-833-3221.
    2. If the issue only occurs on one device the issue is not with the TV but with the device or the cables used to connect it to the TV.

Vizio Model SV320SVT powers on, after Vizio splash screen it goes blank. Power stays on, but no backlight on screen.


Yes its very repairable as long as the logo stays white you can assume the main boards good.

Power is there, but TV won't turn on


stored voltages are high no touching these circuts becuase they hold charges and alot of screws.
fualty capacitors you say after a while it stays on theres a full charge in the unit theres some type of discharging effect on the set after its off for a while. voltage goes to low or unstable after it is off for a while. your better off getting the service docs for this set if you want to diy..other wise get a tv tech to check it for you. hope this helps

No Screen or sound


there are two possibilities to this problem. First and cheapest way is to replace the main board. Second, replace the inverter board. This is the boards that are mounted vertically on both sides of the TV.
