32" Vizio HDTV gets power, but the screen is black and no sound"

The vizio will turn on changing the orange viztio light to white, but then the white gets dimmer and dimmer.... I can not turn the tv off at the tv or at the remote the dim white light stays on. There is a totally black screen during this entire time and there isw no sound at all. This HDTV is only just a little over 2 years old.... when I purchaced it a Sam's I WAS told not to purchace the extended warranty, becaused it was a new unit and Sam's backs all their produrtw....failed to tell me their warranth was only for 1 year.
I'm a very visual person, so could you pleas explain what I need and where it shjould go?

Hi,
You can contact VIZIO directly and inquire about out of warranty repair. Otherwise I would contact local tv repair shops and inquire about an estimate. contact VIZIO Technical Support via email: TechSupport@VIZIO.com or via phone at 877 MY VIZIO (877.698.4946) from 6:00AM to 9:00PM Monday through Friday and 8:00AM to 4:00PM Saturday and Sunday
If you have any other questions let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

    What part have you purchased? Honestly if you don't have any electronics experience I would not recommend doing it yourself as you could just cause more damage to the tv and possibly even yourself.
    Once I have more information I can assist you further.
    Thank you,
    Lee

No power on vizio E371VL


Vizio TV model E371VL turned on ok and had tv show on ch.4.
Turned on the DVD player and put movie dvd in and closed tray.
We have done thhis numerous of times and never had a problem.
This time " HDMI " was showing on top right of black screen,
then " No Signal " came up on screen, then went completely black screen. Called Vizio, they had me power off and unplug set.
Push and Hold power button on TV for 30 sec. to reset.
Replug set and Vizio (lighted) on lower front of set lighted normally dull orange. Pushed power button on remote and when set did not come on, then push main power button on side of TV. Nothing, no White " Vizio " from orange light. Is this a power supply (0500-0412-1020) problem ? Thanks, Sidney (sidneysites@yahoo.com)

lightning can do extensive damage to electronics equipment especially flat panel TV's. I would really recommend a professional diagnosis instead of board swapping. You could have several boards that are damaged!

Its the main board 90% of the time when a vizio has that symptom.

Solutions (2) Best Solution That little fella is only turned off by unplugging it. If all those little lights in America could be turned off we could do with one less nuclear power plant. If unplugging it is not an option, my wife's solution is to cover it with a piece of black tape.

remove all screws on the back of the tv, carefully pull off back cover. you will see two circuit boards one on the left (Power) and one on the right (Video) on the Video board there is a small plug on the right side with a yellow, white and red wire going into a small white connector. the red wire is what controls the orange light on the front. now that the plug is pulled turn it over and you should see a small white plastic piece that holds each metal connector on the end of the wires in. pry this piece of plastic up for the red wire and pull at the same time, the wire will come out of the connector. now tape the metal connector with electrical tape and tuck it behind something or tape it to the chassis. plug your connector back in. put the rear cover back on. now your tv will only show the vizio logo in white when you have the power on. If you wish to disable the logo for both orange and white just disconnect the white plug completely.

I went to turn on my Vizio and the scrren was


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.
