Question about Vizio GV47LF Television
Same situation that others have experienced. I contact Vizio tech support. They said the back lights have gone out and it is basically unrepairable because so costly to repair. Great!! We've only had this TV 2.5 years! And we can't take it back to Costco where we purchased it because the warranty was over at 2 years. There has to be a way to fix this without taking out a second mortgage!
I had the same problem. I replaced the Main Board and it fixed the problem! It was not difficult to do at all as I am a novice at best. The main board has connections to audio, back light power supply and front control panel. It has the HDMI, Composite connections, etc attached as well. Total repair time including putting the back on was about 30-40 min. I obtained the part the part from VIZPARTS.COM and it was about $200 including 2 day air shipping. Good Luck!

Have you talked to Costco? I have the exact same TV with the exact same problem which I purchased in January 2007. I called Costco who contacted a local repair service. After a home visit to diagnose the problem, then a 5 day wait for parts, my TV was working again 1 week after contacting Costco. I did have the original receipt.
