Try pressing the test button again to switch off, or try the other button on the board that says cancel or reset, hope this helps you

Vizio vw42l hdtv10a black screen no sound..please help!!!


The fact the Remote and the side buttons don't work may indicate a microprocessor problem in the set---some sets do have a option that locks out remote and buttons on set--

If you have not tried it, unplug set for a while and plug back in as if a power loss happened to the set this may allow the set to "reboot" and operate again.

Inverter will not affect the remote or buttons on the set. (Its like saying my car has a flat tire, will it stop the motor from starting?)

My best bet would be if the remote/buttons issue is cured the set will be fixed.

Vizio VW42L HDTV10A, Black screen name display on no sound nothing,VIZIO tech says suapects backlight bulbs, but why wouldn


If the backlights lamps are bad, you will not get picture but will still have sound. Lamps (est. life of 50k hours) are rarely goes out, its electronics that go out first. I do not think the person you talk too ever work on the LCD TV.
More liekly that the 12v (for sound) and the 24vdc (for backlights) power supply section is not working.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

42" vizio vw42l - no picture or sound


If the backlights for the screen do come on and you also have 12v and 5v feed the main board then it does sound like the mainboard will need to be replaced.

Vizio GV42L 42inch LCD/HDTV


there are several possibilities. first if the unit comes on and the "VIZIO" light turns white, but no picture or sound, then the main control board is most likely the issue. could be the LCD control board(s) depending on model one or two. and ultimately could be the power supply on the upper side....if the "VIZIO" light does NOT turn white, the whole power supply unit is out. after that, would have to scope the circuits to find out. Seems that the control board is the most common and tends to happen on many different sizes. new board will be around $350.00. Might get lucky and find a used one, but it MUST be EXACT part or it wont work right. if you dont find one or want to sell yours for parts, id be interested in the screen. can reach me at kmarlin@grandvalleygolfclub.com. thanks, keith
