    Concur. Took it to my local TV repair Joe and for the $125 diagnosis fee he found a blown diode and repaired, been functioning normally since (knock on wood). There could be a board problem that may cause it to occur again but a replacement board was not available at the time of the fix.

If it just went blank but the "VIZIO" light turns white when you turn it on, then the control board is most likely the problem. very common on Vizio, all sixes

Vizio vo47L 47" LCD. No


0ne of 3 has failed:
(in order of probability):

1. Backlight inverter
2. Power Supply
3. Backlight

More specifically on #1 and #2 - capacitors either bulging, leaking, or exploded.

Please seek the expertise of an experienced TV repair technician - as they contain potentially lethal voltages that must be properly discharged before work can begin.

Thanks!@#$

47" vizio died


Very high failure rate on this brand. Even after repair, something else will fail. Cut your losses and buy a brand name set.

47" Vizio Flat screen HD LCD freezes up and remote will not work.


could it be Ch 9's digital signal is not broadcasting right? what is your refresh rate on your tv? 60 or 120hz? if its 120hz, then its more then likely the digital broadcast, if its 60hz I think its your tv can't keep up with their signal that may be at 120hz. Make since??

Panasonic rear projection TV 47 in PT 47WX49


Camaroguy: This exact problem happened to us about 8 months ago. A board had to be replaced at a cost of $500. Yesterday, the convergence has gone on the set. You get a blue and yellow shadow on the picture. From what I have been reading, this has happened on a few TVs and it will cost another $500 or so. We refuse to pour more money down the drain so we just went out and bought a new plasma (RCA) for half what it cost us for the Panasonic 4 years ago. We have never had a problem with RCA in the past (two tvs for 20 years a piece).
