    Your solution sounds reasonable. It feels better knowing what's wrong before getting a repairman.

The video board is compromised The reason it takes some time to occur is a heat factor, Once the tranistors that control the picture reach critical temperature they become unstable. The flickering is actually drop out too quick for the eye A halo effect is produced as it tries to redraw the picture at the given line rate, there are light gaps that form this halo effect.

Six years is a long time in todays TV world most start doing this around 2 -3 years just after warranty has expired. Plot? yes I think so given the number we see on here. It can be fixed if you cease to try running it as it will get worse the longer you leave it Estimated cost $2-300

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.
