Question about Vizio VX42L 42 in. LCD TV
1. When the TV powered up, please measure the 24V, 12V & 5V are there, if one voltage is missing, you may have a defective power supply.
2. If the power supply lost the 24V source, you may unplug the power supply connector on both the inverter board, then power it up, if you got the 24V back, you do have a defective inverter board, you may unplug them one at a time to locate the bad one.
3. If the power supply & inverters are good, you may have a defective main board. The common problem on the main board is that a voltage regulator is bad, you may use your millimeter to measure them 1 x 1. The out put voltage (on the heat sync) should be 1.25V + the control voltage (Pin 1), for example: if the control pin voltage is 0, the output voltage should be 1.25V, if the control voltage is 2.05V, the output voltage should be 3.3V, if one of them is out of range, replace it, you may find the part from Digikey Co. The part number printed on the regulator is AMC1117.

I had the same issue on my Vizio and fortunately it was still covered by the Costco extended warranty from where I purchased my tv. The service tech came out yesterday with a power supply and main board which is what I understand is usually the issue with your and my symptoms. He replaced both boards although he felt the issue was in the main board 3647-0072-0150 and not the power supply. Tv is working just fine now and actually may be even a little clearer after the board switch. I understand you can purchase the boards and from what I've seen the tech do, it is no more difficult to replace than if you were building a computer if you are comfortable with that. The most time consuming part of the repair was removing and replacing the screws.

for your VP50, it could just be simple as a power supply but it could also means more. Do you have the amber LED light when off and green when on? if so, try the main board first. If that doesn't resolve the problem, then change the sustainer boards.

There are at least two power supplies in any set with remote capabilities; one is on any time the set is plugged into AC and is supplying that indicator and the receiving circuit of the remote, otherwise it wouldn't turn on under normal conditions. The second power supply produces the needed service voltages used when the set is in use. This second supply is a common failure in many sets and it is generally traceable to poor design and the use of low-quality components of a certain type. Vizio may have a repair or exchange program through their service center. I would guess the cost will be between $50-$150 and you might remove the back panel of the set and look for a smaller board with larger-than-average parts on it and is related to the AC cord coming in. It should be fairly easy to remove and replace as these are often outsourced and just plugged into the rest of the set with dissimilar plugs making it simple to install and reinstall.
