Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
Counting of number of blinks to Philips TVs is entirely different to that of other brand TVs. It is not a direct count procedure. The site have details about how to count the number of LED blinks [Fault Codes] to Philips brand TVs are given; along with details of the faulty circuit location.

SOURCE: VIZIO GV42LHDTV Got TV after

Hi.

If the TV does not start with the new audio board, and if it does start with the old one, then the audio board that you recently purchased is defective.

About the board : 0500-0507-0230; that is the power board (PSU). If you could see the Vizio logo, that means that TV started, and that the power board was OK without need for testing. When the power board is defective, either the TV does not give any sign of life, or the TV goes in standby mode from start and does not wake up. In that case the led stays blinking to warn you that there is an incorrect voltage from PSU.

If the TV is freezing with Vizio logo, that means that at most the faulty part is the main board.

Also, you say that there is no backlight. No backlight means that the screen is completely dark. If there is no backlight you won't be able to see the logo or any other picture.If there is no backlight, then the problem is usually the inverter.

Here a brief article summarizing how to test PSU and inverter: How to test an LCD TV.

Here all parts for this model:GV42LHDTV.

Regard.

Ginko.

SOURCE: Vizio M470NV just purchased, while

I have the same issue on my Vizio M470NV. I called Vizio and they told me it is a self diagnostic test that is shutting down the TV automatically to protect it. They said they are working on fixing the issue with a firmware update that will be pushed out automatically if you are connected to the internet. No ETA given on when that would happen. I called them on the 3/14/11 and my TV is still shutting down randomly.

SOURCE: My vizio e371vl will not power on but the orange vizio stays on

Just had one in the shop. It was bad solder joints on one of the resistor packs near the main IC. These packs don't have legs and don't touch the pads. So it is easy to have a bad connection.
Try resoldering all the r-paks on both sides of the board near that main IC. Good luck!

SOURCE: vizio E371VL screen won't come on

I would have to say the problem is in the T-con board. The T-con board is located in the back, top center of the TV. I would certainly say this is the best place to start!

I have a vizio vx37l was working just fine, went to turn it on and will not come on now. The vizio is orange touch the power button it turns white then back to orange .


That sounds like one of the shutdown circuits of the tv is activating. Most likely would need a tech to repair for you. You could try to power cycle the tv to see if that helps, just unplug the power cord of the tv, wait a few seconds then plug it back in and try to turn the tv on. Would be similar to rebooting a computer.

Vizio vw37l hdtv20a standby light on but wont turn on


you either have a faulty power supply or faulty main board. Vizio power supplies on the older sets are pretty decent. It's usually the main boards that go. These older main boards tend to be pricey so it may be better to buy a new set.

No power on vizio E371VL


Vizio TV model E371VL turned on ok and had tv show on ch.4.
Turned on the DVD player and put movie dvd in and closed tray.
We have done thhis numerous of times and never had a problem.
This time " HDMI " was showing on top right of black screen,
then " No Signal " came up on screen, then went completely black screen. Called Vizio, they had me power off and unplug set.
Push and Hold power button on TV for 30 sec. to reset.
Replug set and Vizio (lighted) on lower front of set lighted normally dull orange. Pushed power button on remote and when set did not come on, then push main power button on side of TV. Nothing, no White " Vizio " from orange light. Is this a power supply (0500-0412-1020) problem ? Thanks, Sidney (sidneysites@yahoo.com)

The main board is usually at fault in a vizio when the logo doesnt turn white which indicates the main board isnt processing the power on command. You can get free technical assistance to troubleshoot that model by contacting the guys at www.tvrepairworld.com

Solutions (2) Best Solution That little fella is only turned off by unplugging it. If all those little lights in America could be turned off we could do with one less nuclear power plant. If unplugging it is not an option, my wife's solution is to cover it with a piece of black tape.

remove all screws on the back of the tv, carefully pull off back cover. you will see two circuit boards one on the left (Power) and one on the right (Video) on the Video board there is a small plug on the right side with a yellow, white and red wire going into a small white connector. the red wire is what controls the orange light on the front. now that the plug is pulled turn it over and you should see a small white plastic piece that holds each metal connector on the end of the wires in. pry this piece of plastic up for the red wire and pull at the same time, the wire will come out of the connector. now tape the metal connector with electrical tape and tuck it behind something or tape it to the chassis. plug your connector back in. put the rear cover back on. now your tv will only show the vizio logo in white when you have the power on. If you wish to disable the logo for both orange and white just disconnect the white plug completely.
