42" vizio lcd screen went black no sound

42" Vizio lcd which is a year old just up and quit working. The screen went black and no sound at all. I could not even shut the tv off had to unplug it in order to shut it down. I tried it again the next day, plugged it in turned it on. Still no picture and no sound. I had to again unplug the tv to shut it off. I check my cables and they are good.

Hi,

I am Sorry, This is a Duplicate Question that was already Answered by Me.Let me again Copy the Reply that u gave :-


I am familiar with this type of TV, I haven't seen a lot of bad Vizios though. I think the likely problem is your power supply.

Is this something you would like to repair yourself? Do you have a multimeter and good soldering tools?

If so, this area of the TV comprises some fuses, a bridge rectifier (4 diodes) a couple of capacitors and a regulator that would need to be checked. If it all checks OK, we can move on to something else.

If you take it to a shop, I think you are looking at a $35 estimating fee and a $200-$300 repair bill.


Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My 52" Vizio LCD (2 yrs old) has power but blank screen


Looks your power supply quit. Get a new one from vizioparts.com might cost a buck and a half,plus an hour of labor, but 52"? deffinetly worth it! Vizio is good on parts. Make sure, have your serial# ready. some sets have been modified within a year, might get a wrong part without ser#.
Take care.

Vizio 42" LCD screen is red where is should be black. It's only 3 months old!


It maybe a video board or LCD screen control problem. Best to use the warranty at this point. You shouldn't have to pay a dime for the TV breaking down this early.
Here's a link to help you get started on your warranty:

Vizio p50 hdm


Sounds like a bad power supply. I have a GV42L 42" manufactured in march 2007. It works perfect except the screen has a fracture on it. The warranty is voided because we damaged the screen. I can sell this to somone who has a good screen but needs boards or speakers, etc. Or I will buy your tv that has a good screen but damaged boards in it.

Sounds like you hit the PIP (picture in picture) button on the remote. Hit it a few more times and it should go away.
