Sounds like main board fault. 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. Surf the site with patience. 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.

You will have to isolate the main board and Inverters.
Unplug the inverters and turn on the set.
If it "turns on" then try re-connecting each inverter seperately to see if only one is causing the problem.

SOURCE: Power is there, but TV won't turn on

stored voltages are high no touching these circuts becuase they hold charges and alot of screws.
fualty capacitors you say after a while it stays on theres a full charge in the unit theres some type of discharging effect on the set after its off for a while. voltage goes to low or unstable after it is off for a while. your better off getting the service docs for this set if you want to diy..other wise get a tv tech to check it for you. hope this helps

SOURCE: Vizio SV470XVT1A has no backlight

The 24vdc is turn on by the signal from the main logic board, it is not always on, the standby 5vdc is always on. So yes it can be the power supply board is bad, but just to besure we need to find out if it is getting the turn on signal from the main board first.
You can have 24vdc at the inverter board and it will not light up the CCFL until it gets the signal from the main logic board to turn the lamps on (this is the STANDBY condition, the TV is on but the screen in not lit up util it see the video signal).
Send me good clean and clear pictures of the power supply board, budmrtn@aol.com, connectors of the Power supply, bottom side of the board, then I may be able to tell you which pin is a control input pin. Most people will just throwing parts in and hope that they one of the parts will fix the problem. Used Power supply module for this TV is over $100. http://www.google.com/products?rlz=1T4GGIH_enUS282US283&q=delta+DPS-379AP&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=USsxTKn3J6TonQfFlJGEBA&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=title&resnum=4&ved=0CCsQrQQwAw

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS].

Getting 120 v to white plug where it first plugs into board should i have power reading at fuse?


yes after to the fuse you must have a reading of 120vac if none the fuse get busted. if the 120v is present then it will goes through the rectifier bridge diode and primary capacitor of the power supply board to have an stand by voltage at the power supply board. when you press the power button it will send signal voltage coming from the main board to turn on the power supply board. the you will need to get an output voltage at the power supply board of 5v dc, 12v-16vdc and 24v to turn on the all the circuit, the main board sound amplifier and the inverter board for screen back light.if you can get those supply the tv unit will not turn on.

Where is the backlight inverter located in vizio sv471xvt?


Larger sets such as the one you have, will have two inverters. They usually are attached to the backside of the LCD panel on the left and right sides. If you don't see them there, then your inverters are built into your power board. If your power boards are either one of these below, then that is the case. If your inverter circuit is at fault, you will have to replace the entire power board.

I have no power in my Vizio VO22L LCD TV. I replaced the power board and still nothing. The Vizio logo in the front does not light up when plugged in. What else can it be. One expert said the cable or...


you have to make sure voltage is getting to the Power supply board, if you know how to check for the 110-120v ac at the board and that there is no line fuse in between. If you are getting power at board then I would make sure the PS are good. You also can check to see if you have voltages going to other boards, Inverter boards go bad in this set alot, but you should still have logo light up white or amber, To get it right you must check voltages, carefully.
