Re: NO picture

Make sure the video cable supplied with the TV is secured to the correct video

output port on the back of the VCR and the TV. Make any cable you have attached

to the TV is secured to the correct output your Set-Top Box, DVD, etc.

Adjust brightness and contrast.

Check Source settings.

Let me know if this does not help and ill look for anything else. Other than this is something internal and will need to be serviced probably

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.

No picture on vizio lcd

It's likely not a backlight, but a mainboard. If you are feeling frisky, take the back off and get the model number off the mainboard and check eBay.

change out the LVDS cable (the cable that go from the control board to the main board) and it should resolve your problem. If your TV is still in warranty, call 1-877-MY-VIZIO and they will set up an in home repair for free.

No picture but sound

do any lights come on with the TV?, like white vizio or orange vizio light. sounds like a problem with the power board. some vizio parts have lifetime warranties so contact vizio support and report your problem. if it is covered the service call is free. there is a green led light on the power board that should come on, if it is not on, you may have a bad power board. to see this light on the power board, turn off the lights in the room and view the tv from the back cover, power board is 3/4 way toward top in the middle of the tv

No screen display - VIzio 50" Flat screen TV

If you purchased the TV 6 months ago, still under manufacturers warranty. They normally give customers 1 year warranty coverage.
It looks like the main board will have to be replace on this TV or fix to the component level.

Vizio TV won't come on

I ran into the same problem within 14 months of ownership. Seems the expiration of my warranty conveniently coincided with the expiration of the Visio television...I am now the proud owner of a $1000 brick. A call to support ended with a repair quote of over $500! A painful lesson, but Vizio will not be seeing any more of my money...I'll spend that $500 on a QUALITY television.
