Do you have back light when turning on the TV? if you do then just replace the main board should resolve the problem. if you do not have back light, you will need to replace the inverter board(s) depending on your model. The inverter board(s) is located on the left side of the TV facing back of TV. you may have two inverter boards depending on your model. the other is located on the right side of the TV. Both mount vertically.

    Hi Dave,
    there are three types of inverter for your model. The inverter is based on your serial number. you can go to vizparts.com or vancebaldwin.com and get the parts. It cost about $149. Make sure when you order the part that you tell them your serial number so that they could get you the correct part.

Tech Guy-925 Hi Dave,


I have a Vizio VW37L hdtv20a. My kids use it for there Xbox360 and they leave it on all the time with the blue screen showing for hrs at a time. So when they told me it does work anymore I thought they finally burnt the mainboard or powersupply. I have the same issue with the Vizio going from Amber to White with no picture/sound just black screen and the side control panel to select power and menu does not work also.
My Solution:
1) I tried to hold the power button down while pluging it back in and waiting for the screen to change to blue and it but it when back off and did not turn back on using the power button or remote.
2) I used the remote this time holding down the power button on the remote and plugging in the TV. I held the button down until the Vizio lite went from Amber to White to Amber again. I let the power button go and pressed it again and the TV came on and the side control panel works also. I turned the TV on/off a few times using the remote and side control panel and all seems fine now.

Thanks,
Tech Guy-925

No power on vizio E371VL


Vizio TV model E371VL turned on ok and had tv show on ch.4.
Turned on the DVD player and put movie dvd in and closed tray.
We have done thhis numerous of times and never had a problem.
This time " HDMI " was showing on top right of black screen,
then " No Signal " came up on screen, then went completely black screen. Called Vizio, they had me power off and unplug set.
Push and Hold power button on TV for 30 sec. to reset.
Replug set and Vizio (lighted) on lower front of set lighted normally dull orange. Pushed power button on remote and when set did not come on, then push main power button on side of TV. Nothing, no White " Vizio " from orange light. Is this a power supply (0500-0412-1020) problem ? Thanks, Sidney (sidneysites@yahoo.com)

I Lost picture. Went to press mute button on remote and pressed last button instead. Now i can't get picture back.


If you hit the "last" button again, it should take you back to the channel you were on before you hit the button. when you lost the picture, was the screen blue? black? If you hit the "menu" button, does the menu come up?

I have a Vizio VT420M. When I turn it on by remote, or power button, the Vizio light changes from amber to white, but I get no picture at all OR sound. Do these symptoms sound like a bad power supply,


Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Suddenly no picture only a black screen.The tv has power the little vizio turns on white i can hear the audio and change through the cable channels with my comcast remote.The vizio remote will turn the tv...


Look through the ventilation slits at the back of the TV with the room lights out. If you do not see white light light bleeding through the back, you have a back light failure. It could be the inverter circuit which lights up the CCFL ( cold cathode fluorescent lamp ). You will need professional help to replace it and could cost you about 70 to 100 $ to fix.

My Vizio, when I turn it on the Vizio turns white, but the screen is black and there is no sound coming through


Have you tried hitting the 'input' button on the remote control?
Check the connections of external devices like an antenna, satellite, or cable that may be connected to the TV.
Press the TV button on the top of the remote to return to the TV mode if you have changed modes.

The LCD screen is dark with no sound or picture when turned on.


I had the same 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. 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.

HOW I FIXED MINE:Look through the back vents for a white light to make sure the backlight still works. 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.

For me the part number was either (depending on the vendor) : 0171 2272 2174 or it was 3632 0212 0150. Check your circuit and see if any of those numbers match up.

No Screen or sound


there are two possibilities to this problem. First and cheapest way is to replace the main board. Second, replace the inverter board. This is the boards that are mounted vertically on both sides of the TV.
