I think you would have to get in touch with the makers and ask them.

I have a e422vle Vizio TV. The power board went bad, I ordered a new one and the Tv now is working but the remote doesn't work. Is the remote sensor on the power board?

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Pull up older posts. If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV.

Why remote not working in my 42 inch e series tv

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience.
If remote control is working properly, the infrared sensor inside the TV is faulty. If so, contact any service technician to replace it.

4 year old vizio 42 inch tv lcd. While watching tv, the screen started dimming. There is a 4 inch shadow all along left side of the screen and the 1 inch line shadow going down the middle of the screen.

Maybe a power supply or related issue but at 4 years of age the set has reached its life span----parts will be hard or impossible to find.

If you got four years I would retire it and recycle it and then replace it.

Have a three year old Vizio 42 inch that has no power. Will not turn on at all. ANy ideas how to fix this? Do I need a repair man?

Sometimes there is a service panel on the back of the tv that you can remove with a screwdriver. If there is a fuse, take it out and replace it with one that matches it from an electronics store. Never know until you try
