I have a vizio vx37l was working just fine, went to turn it on and will not come on now. The vizio is orange touch the power button it turns white then back to orange .

That sounds like one of the shutdown circuits of the tv is activating. Most likely would need a tech to repair for you. You could try to power cycle the tv to see if that helps, just unplug the power cord of the tv, wait a few seconds then plug it back in and try to turn the tv on. Would be similar to rebooting a computer.

If the cooling fan on my Vizio RP56 stops working, will it cause my screen to go blank, seems like bulb will not work if cooling fan is broke.

The fans are all monitored by the Micro. When one goes down, especially the lamp fan, they will not fire. If the fan is bad, replace it. If it's not I would call a service company.

Need schematic for Vizio VW37L Hdtv

Im having the same problum with my Vizio VW32L
My back light stays on just no picture.. It only turn off if i unplug it.

I need to get a new main board $149

What your tv repair man needs is a Parts & Service manual you can find that here..

The Manual will have the schematics and block diagrams..

If your repair man needs you to find this info, then maybe you should find a new one?
