Question about Vizio VX20L 20 in. LCD TV
I have a Vizio 37 inch lcd tv. It works fine from the cable box, but when I try a DVD the picture will fade out to black after about five minutes. The picture comes back if I hit the volume or any button on the cable remote, but will fade out again after a couple of minutes. If I switch back to the cable box, it will then also fade out. I have only been able to stop it if I go through a complete tv set up, but it will do it again if I try a DVD again. Does this have a screen saver or power saver in the set up?
Well It depends on what you mean by fade out, Fades out completely or just darkens enough to be annoying? I just bought this exact tv and mine also fades, I changed the preset picture function to "game" mode and the fading stoped.

I'm not sure how electrically inclined that you are, but you need to open up the set and measure the DC voltage on the backlight
inverter board to see if you have the 24vdc after the picture goes out,
if you do have the 24vdc, then the problem is in the inverter board, if
24vdc is gone then it will be in the power supply which then needs to be replaced. You should be able to find the parts needed at shopjimmy.com
Let me know how this works out for you and remember to be careful as there are many dangerous components in the set when there is power running to it.
