Hello,

your TV is having a power problem. The power supply board is defective that's why the TV won't power up. Its receiving power but it cannot transfer the current to the necessary part of the TV because a capacitor, diode, etc may have been faulty. Until these bad components are replaced, the TV might not come on.

If you know about TV repairers, I would suggest that you open the TV and read the power board/panel with a meter, detect the bad component and replace it. Take note that TV stores a lot of current that can shock, so leave the TV for a while before you open it.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you.

I wish you good luck.

VIZIO tv model VW42LFHDTV10A serial LJPBYBJ1405269 sound good but no picture.


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

Some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

VIZIO MODEL VW42LFHDTV10A WILL NOT TURN ON. FUSES &VOLTAGES OK


Did you check for the "ON" or "PS ON" signal on the power supply board? It should be around 3.3vdc.This signal comes from the main board, it commands the other sections of the power supply to come on and turn on the TV set. This signal should be present when you press the power button from either the TV or remote. If you are not getting this signal from the main board, you're most likely dealing with a main board failure. If you are dealing with a main board failure, take heed, some Vizio main boards can be expensive.

Can you fix this cracked screen problem on Vizio VW42LFHDTV10A? and no sound?


We used to say have a short service on the patio and buy a new set---damaged panel display unit is more than set cost (if it is even available)
Let it go---when damaged it can instantly damage other boards/parts in the set.

Run a car with no oil and see what happens........

replace the sustainer boards should correct this problem. New sustainer boards may cause red and green pixilation. If this happen, replace control board and TV is as good as new.
