This tv just went into a black screen in the middle of a movie. The power button is the only thing that works does anyone have an idea of what might be wrong. I read somewhere about z and y boards not sure if i should dive in and purchase these parts.

    Same thing happened to me! I had the tv going for 7+ hours and then all of the sudden it just turned off... sound is still on though. I turned off the tv and let it sit for a minute, and turned it back on. The picture stayed on for like 5 seconds, then turned black. I JUST BOUGHT MY TV 5 DAYS AGO! And this is the first time I used it for 7 hours! What's the deal?

There could be a few things that would cause this. I would suspect that you have a problem with either the power supply board or the main board. Based on my experience, the main boards go before the power supplies. What is the model #

VIZIO TV Black screen. Cannot turn off TV without unplugging.


I had a similar problem after having a Vizio for 2 and a half years. I left the room for a minute, i came back and the screen went black. I didnt hear an arcing sound though. There was still power to the unit and you could see that the back light was working, just no picture, no sound, and you couldn't use any of the buttons. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. It would then start up, with the Vizio logo going from orange to white, and then do the same thing all over, no pic or sound. I would check the ceramic fuse first on the board that gets power from the plug.

HOW I FIXED MINE: I ordered a new "main PCB" from tigerdirectparts.com (you can also use searspartsdirect.com). This is the circuit board with all of the inputs on it (hdmi, cable, etc.) I opened it up, disconnected the old one, put in a new one and now it works fine.I used both serial numbers on the board to search for it online. It cost me $144 to do it, but that's better than $450 for a new TV. My tv is the vx32l hdtv10a. I hope that helps.

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.

Could be the power supply gone bad.
No easy solution I'm afraid.

The same thing happened to me Twice!. First time it was under warranty. Now it it out and Vizio has not interest in helping me. The first time the repair man changed the motherboard, which worked for about a year. Looks like I will be buying a new TV soon, but certainly NOT a Vizio, they are junk
Anyone out there know how much a motherboard costs?
