Question about Vizio P42HD Television

No picture on vizio lcd

Vizio model number vx37LHDTV10A
Until today, my Vizio worked great. Turned it on today and there is no picture. Sound works perfectly. The Costco 2 year warranty expired last month (story of my life) and now I am not sure what to do. I called Vizio and they asked about a backlight. I have no idea what this is. Can anyone help?

It's likely not a backlight, but a mainboard. If you are feeling frisky, take the back off and get the model number off the mainboard and check eBay.

Black screen with sound


My 47" LCD Smart T.V. was working fine last night. I got up this morning and I have sound but no picture. The VIZIO icon lights up as usual but I get no picture, only sound. From the time I turned it on, nothing appeared on the screen. I have already tried unplugging it for a while and still nothing.

Sound not working, Was working earlier today and after shutting off the tv, when we turned it back on, sound wasen't working


Sound issues and answersa short list:

sound on set or a box muted or turned down?

speakers inside the set (see menu) switchedon or off?

internal/external switch somewhere in or on back of set?

Clearly it could be a audio problem (a model number?) but explore all here thatyou have not already done--make sure theremote set to TV and look for a button on it marked MTS and if there cycle it.

You can also determine if same trouble when you play a DVD.

No picture at all. had no problems until last night, turned TV on, and no picture. TV is VIZIO 32 inch LCD


Do you still get sound? If you do get sound, then the problem can be in the backlight inverter board or in the main power supply that supply 24vdc to the inverter board.

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.

Vizio 32" no picture only sound 1 year old 720 I


call 1-877 MY VIZIO if your set is still under warranty. If not, you'll have to find a local TV repairman to get it working again. Let him know that he can order a main board from http://www.encompassparts.com/models/?VIZVW32LHDTV10A Expect to pay somewhere around $200 if you find someone willing to do the repair.
