The power supply may have failed, or it is in the safety shutdown mode due to short circuits in the power supply or in the backlight inverter board, you can try disconnecting the power cables to the backlight inverter board to see if you can get the TV to come on with sound but will not have picture.

Vizio TV wont turn on after three weeks no use


My vizio recently did the same exact thing. Vizio sent an HDTV tech out to fix it and it was the power board. He put a new board in (took 15 min) and the tv works like new.

Vizio GV42L 42inch LCD/HDTV


there are several possibilities. first if the unit comes on and the "VIZIO" light turns white, but no picture or sound, then the main control board is most likely the issue. could be the LCD control board(s) depending on model one or two. and ultimately could be the power supply on the upper side....if the "VIZIO" light does NOT turn white, the whole power supply unit is out. after that, would have to scope the circuits to find out. Seems that the control board is the most common and tends to happen on many different sizes. new board will be around $350.00. Might get lucky and find a used one, but it MUST be EXACT part or it wont work right. if you dont find one or want to sell yours for parts, id be interested in the screen. can reach me at kmarlin@grandvalleygolfclub.com. thanks, keith

Totally dead. Vizio GV42L


If the circuit breaker was tripped, more likely the fuse inside the TV power supply might also be blown. If that is the case there might be a short circuit in the power supply components, more likely on a diode or transistor/mosfet.
Contact these website to see if they have the parts for your plasma.
Good Luck.

May be a bad power supply, which is a common problem with these units.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.

I had this same problem. Vizio sent someone out to replace the motherboard. It didn't fix the problem. Since it was under warranty, they replaced it with a newer model VU42L. Doesn't have this problem, but it has others.

I have a Vizio GV42L LCD HDTV. The remote no longer is able to work the TV until it is moved closer tothe unit. I have tried another remote from my cable compnay that could work the TV but I get the ame...


On the front bottom of the TV there is a little round eye. If that eye gets blocked, it'll reduce the range of the remote. Make sure there's nothing in front of it. Other than that, the sensor behind the eye could be bad.

Hope that helps...
