Question about Vizio GV47LF Television

Vizio GV47L - screen went blank after fizzle pop sound

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.

I have a Vizio GV47L LCD TV. I bought this about 3 years ago. The other day when it was on and working fine, I went in the other room for about 5 minutes and when I came back in it was making a fizzle...


ANy sign of DC filter caps with open top (may be that was the sound you hear was cap is blowing its tops). You need to do some voltage checking and some visual inspection.

You have to remove the heatsink to see the caps under it.
Post back what you see.

Our 3 1/2 year old Vizio P42 plasma made a pop, screen now blank


Hello kilmertwo, my names Dave! What your TV did is called the POP OF Death! In order to repair the TV you will need to replace the Y sustain & the Z sustain board also! The loud POP noise you heard came from the Z sustain! If you take this TV to a local repair shop the cost of the repair is going to be around 800.00 big one! 450.00 parts and 350.00 labor! Not only will you be spending that amount but this is a common problem with this TV! So you take the chance of this happening again! What I'm trying to do is to save you from throwing good money after bad! Do not repair the TV! You can for the same amount of money buy a totally brand new TV! I would suggest that you buy a Panasonic! Trust me!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions! I'll be more then happy to answer any question you may have!

Was watching my vizio and i heard a pop and the screen went blank, but there still is sound, its about 4 years old can it be fixed and ballpark on how much it would cost to fix!


Main Power Supply issue! The repair would cost you more than what a new flat panel would cost you. Vizio is a Chinese made TV. Only lasting 3.5 to 4 years. Go out and buy yourself a new Christmas gift a new flat screen TV. Try to get a name brand one like Sony, Samsung or Panasonic. They have great service records. Vizio is your typical breaks, throw it away.
Blessings always,

Could be the power supply gone bad.
No easy solution I'm afraid.

Vizio tv first screen had bluish discoloration and than few days later a pop and screen went black .ANY IDEA OR SUGGESTION all of the sudden started experiencing severe discoloration


This is called the pop of death! If you call vizio they will ask you if you heard a pop, this is a common issue and unless your under warrenty your looking at 916$ to fix it. (assuming you have no sound! If you do its 430$ plus tax for parts and repair. You can buy a used one on ebay for that price!

I have the parts numbers if you want them!
Call vizio if you have had this system for under a yr the will fix it free!

As for me my 50 and 42 inch had this issue and well I am out of warrenty.. I hate vizio lol!
