Question about Vizio Gallevia GV42LF 42 in. LCD Television
It is a Vizio L30E I call tech support. they gave me a number to another vendor. Who has not called me back. This tv is just 3 years old. Can you help me or should I cut my losses and buy another tv.
Try to use the reset factory reset feature. Unplug the set. After unplugging press the power button for 30 seconds. Plug the set back in and turn it on.

80% of TVs are having this same problem in different brands.
I'm sure Carlos meant well. If you took it to someone to have it fixed, then yes, it would be cheaper to by a new TV. ( Labor + Part )
But, if you can repair your TV yourself for less than a $100 vs buying a new TV for over $450, would it be worth it? ( Part alone )
If you or someone you know can replace a whole ciruit board, then it can be fixed.
Here's a web site to get the replacement board:
You'll just need to find the right one by looking at yours. Your backlight board will have letters & numbers on it for a board model#. It should be easy to find one and replace it.

Sue, I had same problem. I worked around it though, and glad I did. I used a computer sound system (sobwoofer, 2 speakers, power supply) and used the headphone output as the speaker system's input. Now I have surround sound controlled by the remote. Great for the kitchen where we all sit around and watch movies.

may be a mainboard problem. If you can see the orange light it usualy means that there is power running through the TV... usually inverter boards are a problem when you do not see any backlight at all.
