Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

You need to do some more diagnosing of the problem. If you get sound and change channels take a bright flashlight and place it again the screen. Look for an image around the edge of the flashlight.
If you see an image that means the LCD controller board (TCON) is probably good.

The problem is probably one of three causes;
1) Inverter board is bad
2) CCFT (cold cathode fluorescent light) are bad.
3) Power to the inverter board is bad. You can also check the connectors.

SOURCE: vizio glv47 powers up no then no picture

We have the same problem and purchased a power supply to see if it would fix the problem. It didn't. We are now in the process of buying the main logic board and we will let you know if this fixes the problem. It seems like it is in sleep mode but doing the steps to get the tv out of sleep mode does not work.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

Vizio e322ar won't turn on


My Vizio E322AR White Vizio Light comes on when plugged in, then slowly fades to "Off". I unplugged and replugged - same. I held down the power botton on the side, and plugged in... same. Vizio light comes on (White) and over 5 seconds or so... fades out to nothing.
Remote doesn't do anything, buttons on the side don't do anything.
Going to pull the back off and look for bad Capacitors, and test fuzes for continuity. Wish me luck ... will report back later with results.

VP422 plasma will not hold power If i plug it in the yellow Vizio lights up then fades out


The set is going to have to be taken apart and looked at: a guess would be to start with the main power/power supply board.

My kid put a plug from the computer no power to it and it just went off it was pluged into the serivce port


It's probably just a fuse.
I don't have a physical layout of that TV inside though so if it's blown, I'd need pics.

Here's the possible good news though.
He may have simply tripped the power supplys' protection circuit.
Unplug the TV for 5 minutes and plug it back in, it may be fine!
It takes a while being unplugged to reset the power supply when that sort of thing happens.

If the TV still won't come on, you'll need to open it up and get some good shots on the power supply board and the board that the service port is on, and of the cable that connects the 2 of them together.
If the pictures are good enough, I can point out where the fuses are.

If the photos are necessary, post a comment or reply here and I'll give you an address to send the photos to.

Vizio vx42l Tv will come on no pic, after about 60 sec color lines fade onto the screen, tv will not turn off, need to unplug


It sounds like you have shorted CRT neck board, and it you probably would be better off buying a new LCD.

The LCD screen is dark with no sound or picture when turned on.


I had the same problem after having a Vizio for 2 and a half years. I left the room for a minute, i came back and the screen went black. There was still power to the unit and you could see that the back light was working, just no picture, no sound, and you couldn't use any of the buttons. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. It would then start up, with the Vizio logo going from orange to white, and then do the same thing all over, no pic or sound.

HOW I FIXED MINE:Look through the back vents for a white light to make sure the backlight still works. I ordered a new "main PCB" from tigerdirectparts.com (you can also use searspartsdirect.com). This is the circuit board with all of the inputs on it (hdmi, cable, etc.) I opened it up, disconnected the old one, put in a new one and now it works fine. I used both serial numbers on the board to search for it online. It cost me $144 to do it, but that's better than $450 for a new TV. My tv is the vx32l hdtv10a. I hope that helps.

For me the part number was either (depending on the vendor) : 0171 2272 2174 or it was 3632 0212 0150. Check your circuit and see if any of those numbers match up.
