42" Vizio tv. It turns on and turns right back off. It worked perfectly fine until my cat jumped on the remote and now I have no idea what's wrong with it. I think it can be fixed if anyone knows anything...

1. pull battery from remote for 10 seconds. This will force reboot of remote. test, if fail move ahead,

2. do a main reset on Tv,, pull power plug from power source,, wait 10 seconds, reconnect, turn on!, fail continue

3. ? when you turn on TV is the stand by led light amber, when you turn on LED\'s does it start to change color , but standby light is still on? if test positive with findings issue should be your motherboard or even power board but it should be Mo/Bo..

What if the tv is off and the red stand by light is not on what does that mean

The red "stand by" light shows power is getting to the TV. If it is off, you may have no house power being connected. If you can get the red light to come on but your TV still does not turn on the power supply may have failed

Do you have back light when turning on the TV? if you do then just replace the main board should resolve the problem. if you do not have back light, you will need to replace the inverter board(s) depending on your model. The inverter board(s) is located on the left side of the TV facing back of TV. you may have two inverter boards depending on your model. the other is located on the right side of the TV. Both mount vertically.
