The Service Plan from Walmart is an "extended plan" on top of the manufacture warranty. Your Tv is still under warranty from the manufacture.
Here's a link to get the info you need to get started on a warranty claim:

My vizio 32 inch LCD tv shut itself off after being on for 5 hours tv was not hot I finally got it to turn back on after 15 minutes since then it has been fine what could have caused this


Set may have like a car with a check engine light have detected something and shut down as protection-----monitor it and if it gets worse or repeats consider having a shop examine it.

I would suspect issue is or was on power supply board.

3 YEAR OLD SANYO DP 32746. SHUT ITSELF OFF, CAN NOT TURN BACK ON


If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.

Power


The reason the tv is turning itself off, because most TVs have a "Protection Mode" that turns the unit off when it detects a failed part inside the tv.
The most likely the tv has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
Being that the TV is under a year old, it should be still under manufacture warranty. Last thing you want do is void the warranty by opening up the TV. Here's some info to get you started on the warranty:
http://www.vizio.com/support.aspx?id=1588

If it not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Bad capacitors in the power supply. Open it up and look for swollen electrolytics.
