Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The most common thing to go bad is the power supply for the screen. Most manufactures call it a Blacklight Inverter Board. Most TVs have a " Protection Mode ". That's when the TV detects a bad circuit board and automatically turns itself OFF so it can protect the other components inside the TV. But, I can't say which board is the problem 100% because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms. I'm sure it going to be a power supply related problem.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under some extented warranty by Vizio, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you 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. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

My vizio is 3 years old went to turn on an get no picture but i have sound


does the tv have a lit up screen at all? if there is, this could potentially be a problem with you main board (input board). if there is not, there may be an issue with the inverter boards. you can contact a vizio certified repair company for more information, or check voltages running from the main board to the t-con board, and from the power board to the inverter board.

Vizio screen went off but power light is still on


may be a mainboard problem. If you can see the orange light it usualy means that there is power running through the TV... usually inverter boards are a problem when you do not see any backlight at all.

No picture but sound


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
