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.

    My backlight isn't on at all. I plug it in and power on, the vizio light turns white but I can't power it off unless I unplug it. No sound, no picture. Do you think I'd need the same part?

Vizio model VX32L TV has no picture


80% of TVs are having this same problem in different brands.
I'm sure Carlos meant well. If you took it to someone to have it fixed, then yes, it would be cheaper to by a new TV. ( Labor + Part )

But, if you can repair your TV yourself for less than a $100 vs buying a new TV for over $450, would it be worth it? ( Part alone )
If you or someone you know can replace a whole ciruit board, then it can be fixed.
Here's a web site to get the replacement board:
http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=vx32l+back+light

You'll just need to find the right one by looking at yours. Your backlight board will have letters & numbers on it for a board model#. It should be easy to find one and replace it.

Plasma does stay powered on


Your sustainer board is probably bad. You need to get the Y & Z sustainer boards replace then it should be okay.

No picture or sound


Sounds like the unit is in some sort of shutdown. It's hard to pinpoint the issue without knowing the make/model of the unit.
