Question about Vizio VBR120 Player
Earlier today I was watching a movie on the player and I switched over to regular tv and while I was watching my show, the player shut down, as it does without any activity. When I went back to watch my DVD none of the buttons worked on the remote and the movie wouldn't load and the door opened on it's own. What can I do to remedy this? I unplugged it and that didn't seem to help. The movie that I had in there was brand new and it was the first time it was in the player.

may be a mainboard problem. If you can see the orange light it usualy means that there is power running through the TV... usually inverter boards are a problem when you do not see any backlight at all.

Wow, I feel stupid! Solution #2 did it! There are 2 Tv buttons, one on the top right and one on bottom right. You have to press the bottom one!! THANK YOU PPL!!!

If your DVD player supports HDMI or OPTICAL / DIGITAL audio then I would take a look at swapping to those type of connection first. This would help eliminate bad cords / connectors / electrical interference from other sources
Your TV has two hdmi inputs and optical so you have a choice

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.
