Question about Vizio Televison & Video
This model develops bad solder joints on the connector between the power supply and the led driver board and loses backlighting. It's hard to believe, but the whole connection goes bad. All those pins supply only 24v and gnd. Resolder all of the pins on the power supply half of the connector and the tv will work.
It's the connector between that large yellow board (p/s) and the center green board (led driver).

Your power supply board is working if you get audio and imgaes.
You test AC only the AC side of the transformer before the Rectifier Diodes. Everything after the Diodes will be in DC.
did you get to see any spec of backlight as shown in

If I may suggest, before changing, please check that the inverter board is producing the necessary voltage to drive the backlights or not. If the board is producing the necessary power and still the backlight is not coming on, there is possibility that some of the LEDs in the backlight array have failed.

Testimonial: "No matter which HDMI input I use the screen is totally black again. The apple tv works fine on a different Vizio TV with a different HDMI cable."
The led is what makes the picture try replacing that it it's the only one you didn't change out

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.
