I have a 32 inch vizio. got it just over a year ago. great tv, until one day after work when i got home, it didn't turn on at all. no power. thought it was the power cord, however i checked it with the power cord that we have hooked up to the bigger tv in the living room. that checked out, so it's definately not the power cord. vizio sign doesn't light up on the tv, no noise, no nothing, just pitch black. warranty ran out, not sure what to do.

You may have bad solder joints inside and around the power supply or deflection circuit.
Whit the power on try to hit the side of the set to see if it makes a difference.That would confirm the problem.
Hope this will help Good luck.

Good day sir, that usually happens to my PC. I usually bring it to work and somehow doesnt work in the office. this is due to transportation jitters, some components seems to get dislodge or parts get disconnected, wires get tangled. Im afraid that there are parts inside your tv isnt fixed with screws well. the only way to solve this is to check the internal parts of the TV module by module. and locate the culprit. hope this helps. thanks
Try leaving the TV unpugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself. If that doesn't work, 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. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route. If 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 by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.
My tv did this same thing before it just died all together. You are still under warranty so you'll want to give Vizio a call and they will have a tech come out and fix it for you (if its over 32 inches). The reason it does this is because the power board in the tv is shorting out and dying. Vizio put in really bad power boards and so now they are all going out. They sent a guy out to be a week after calling them initally and now my tv works again.
Try unplugging the tv and holding down the power button for 30 seconds than pluuging it back in and if it does not come back on the tv will need a repair to the power supply, just call tech support and make sure to have the serial number and the reciet handy so they can get you registered on the support system. Hopefully your tv is still under the one year mark than the repair will be free if not it can get expensive fast. Me personnaly have worked for vizio for about a year now and honestly this is a very common problem with theses tv's.
do any lights come on with the TV?, like white vizio or orange vizio light. sounds like a problem with the power board. some vizio parts have lifetime warranties so contact vizio support and report your problem. if it is covered the service call is free. there is a green led light on the power board that should come on, if it is not on, you may have a bad power board. to see this light on the power board, turn off the lights in the room and view the tv from the back cover, power board is 3/4 way toward top in the middle of the tv
My 47" Vizio wouldnt turn on this morning.....had a similair problem 3 yrs ago.....this is what i did and fixed the problem myself.....apparently you have to reset TV. Here is what has worked for me. So unplug tv power cord from the tv. Hold the power button and imput button together ( located on side panel ) for approx 45 sec......plug cord back into tv. Press power button on tv and voila !!!!! Tv came back on!!! I have had my Vizio almost 5 yrs. But have to call the unhelpful customer service atleast once a year.... I hope this works for you :)
