    Final Results. In fact the Main Board was damaged. Since the power failure happened when the TV was in standby mode it affected the Main Board that constants received 5v+-. Replaced the board and got back my TV.
    Thanks

Vizio vw37l hdtv20a standby light on but wont turn on


you either have a faulty power supply or faulty main board. Vizio power supplies on the older sets are pretty decent. It's usually the main boards that go. These older main boards tend to be pricey so it may be better to buy a new set.

If the backlights for the screen do come on and you also have 12v and 5v feed the main board then it does sound like the mainboard will need to be replaced.

Vizio wont turn on!!


I have this problem. Bought at Costco. Called them and was transferred to Vizio. TV still under warranty, so they are supposed to get me another TV. Mine is only a little over a year old. The one they are giving me is NOT new, but refurbished. I'm not happy about this, but what can I do? Apparently, this IS a KNOWN problem.
