My new TV - 3 weeks out of warranty - has just stopped working, no power to it at all. Have tried plugging it in to various sockets, nothing. Tried chaning the fuse, still nothing. Any other ideas before I call in the repair man!!!

Problem: No video,no audio, and no indicator.. Solution: Is this a new television? If so, then plug something else into the same socket.. If the socket is working then you should examine the TV to see if there are any signs of the electricity to the TV (exterior.. do not take it apart). If there is no electricity in the TV then it may have a bad power supply or a bad cord. Best thing would be to take it back.. Most TV's come with a warranty.. If the warranty has expired you can usually talk with the store and even with the manufacturer appealing to them that the TV should have lasted longer... I usually ask them if they can make a consideration in this case.. Sometimes they will. I once got a brand new Sony Digital camera that was out of warranty because I reasoned with them that a $1000 camera should last longer that one year and one week (that is when it went out).. Negotiating is powerful.. At least you are taking a shot... Who know? You may win. If the TV is used... Same as above with the tests.. I have repaired my own TV's before BUT I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS BECAUSE IT IS VERY DANGEROUS. There is a high chance of deadly shock within the TV.. Don't take the TV apart yourself! You can find a used TV on Craigslist.. I have even seen people giving working TV's away because they just bought a giant screen or something....
My friend bought a Poloroid tv, similiar to yours. The power supply went bad 2 weeks after warranty expired; he had to pay to have a whole new power supply installed - roughly $250. Two weeks later my Toshiba (same age) won't turn on - no lights or anything. Same thing - power supply. Sounds like yours is in the same category. Hopefully you bought the extended warranty.
could be dead, but check to ensure that you are using the monitor ONLY, not TV tuner device. as a standalone, not hooked to cpu if there is no power light when plugged in assume your buying a new monitor.
It's very easy to swap the entire power supply board. If it's out of warranty, what do you have to loose? You can purchase a new power supply board from Vance Baldwin. They are the ONLY parts supplier for Vizio. http://www.vancebaldwin.com/ Once you receive the new board, it's just plug and play. Crack the case (a series of small screws around the back perimeter) and remove the old power board and replace it with the new one. It's that easy!
