SOURCE: I have a Vizio e470i-ao. Before black screen, it lightly faded across the middle. Is it the LED strips, or the LED driver failing?

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.

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.

SOURCE: I have a Vizio E550i-B2 and the screen went blank, I do still have sound. I did the flashlight test and I can see the screen very dim. Would this be the LED driver board or power supply board?

Hi,
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).

Vizio tv power button will not stay lit fades and shuts down in about 10 seconds. No backlights no backlit screen. Vizio mod # e420i-ao. any ideas. trying to check voltages but don't know If I can.


In most of the case, the problem is defective LED back lights strips, the other problem could be a defective main board.

If you have a LED strip tester, check out the LED strip first, if you don't, try a new main board first, if the symptoms are the same, for sure, the problem is LED strip(s).

Vizio 55 inch TV "Vizio E550I-B2" is Darker on the left viewing side, replaced the Power Supply board. And the Screen is still dark on the left side. Any suggestions?


It is a common problem for this TV, it uses a Sharp LED display panel. The problem is the data buffer IC inside the panel ether shorted, or burned open.
Vizio offers a extended exchange warranty if you have the original sale slip.

For more information, you may contact Vizio directly.

I'm trouble shooting my Vizio e550i-2b It has power no backlights, image can be seen with a flashlight, I've replaced led driver board and problem persists, do you suggest main board next?


If you can see an image with a flashlight and you can control the tv with the remote then the main board is not the problem. You've replaced the LED driver board, so that leaves the LED strips inside the LCD panel as the likely problem.

I have a Vizio E550i-b2 55 LED TV. I have no LED backlight. When I hold a flashlight to the screen I can see the images and I have sound. I was going to replace the LED driver? Thoughts??


U are on the right track - problem is caused by the board that drives the backlighting - the inverter board.

If you can get the number for the board it may be available on the cheap on ebay.
