Disconnect the slave. If the set operates replace it. If not the main is bad.

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.

Vizio vx42l hdtv back light


If backlight went out then sound should still work. Are there any indicator lights to show power is coming on anymore? Try unplugging for 30 seconds, hit power button a few times, then plug back in and try to turn on. This drains any capacitors of power to attempt to reset (basically clearing the TV's throat).

Can also try something on a different input. If current input is composite, S-video, or component, try using DVI or HDMI connection as this uses a different board in the TV. If that fixes it, then at least you can try to replace one board instead of entire tv. :)

Magnavox 30MF200V/17 No picture, only sound


Do you know if i can use an inverter from any LCD tv, or does it have to be specific to that model? I was thinking about taking an inverter from another broken TV.
