VIZIO 47" GALLEVIA WORKED PERFECT FOR 4 MONTHS .IT IS THE (MASTER)* BACKLIGHT INVERTER* FOR THE PEOPLE WITH THE VIZIO 47 INCH. ACTUALLY I SWAPPED MINE OUT (BACKLIGHT INVERTER)AND IT WORKED PERFECT.WHEN IT FIRST STARTED ACTING UP I HAD VIDEO AND AUDIO FOR A FEW HOURS THEN THE VIDEO WOULD JUST GO OUT BUT THE TV STILL PLAYED AND THE SOUND WAS THERE BUT NO PICTURE.The defective LCD TV may have the following common symptoms:
Symptom: No picture on screen but LCD TV still has sound.
Solutions: The problem is cause by defective inverter. Replacing inverter will solve the problem.

If you are using a set top box this might be caused by turnig the box on at the same tie as you turn the tv on or slightly after you turn the tv on. If you are using compnent or HDMI inputs the set needs to see the signal as it is turned on to know what formt the signal is in.

I had this same problem. Vizio sent someone out to replace the motherboard. It didn't fix the problem. Since it was under warranty, they replaced it with a newer model VU42L. Doesn't have this problem, but it has others.
