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.

We had the same problem posted here a month or more ago and had to call Vizio to send out a repair guy to replace the inside cable and main board. We got the set from Costco on 5/2/2009, and the problem showed up after about 2 weeks. NOW we are experiencing another problem of having pictures "freeze" and breaking up into little cubes with no sound on various channels at times (Like during the final hole of the British Open which didn't please my 59 yr old husband cheering for 59 yr old Tom Watson!)If you know how to fix this asap please let me know!

Like Tony said. Vizio is very good about standing behind their warranty. If you call them they will talk you through some trouble shooting tests.... If that doesn't fix it they will bring a new one to your house and replace the old one.

When the picture is dark, show a torch light on the screen from a safe distance. If you can see the picture, the backlight is the problem. Anyhow, it is better to show it to a qualified service technician.

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

It maybe a circuit control board for the screen. Last thing you want to do is void the warranty by opening up the TV.
Best to use the warranty at this point. Here's info to get you started.

Periodically the screen will start turning green, then worsen.


Per Vizio's webite( linked below), as long as you purchased the unit from an authorized Vizio dealer you have a one year warranty. You would need to contact vision to determine if the problem is a warranty type issue.

Vizio GV42L LCD TV screen black when turn TV on first time


If you are using a set top box this might be caused by turnig the box on at the same tie as you turn the tv on or slightly after you turn the tv on.  If you are using compnent or HDMI inputs the set needs to see the signal as it is turned on to know what formt the signal is in.
