My Vizio e500i-b1 LEDtv went out last night. How can i tell if it's the main board or the tcon board that isn't functioning?

I would verify the voltages on the power supply board first because an improper voltage to a circuit board may make that board look bad.

Vizio E420-A0 starts to power on, flickers, powers off

As long as you're getting the standby lamp you will see the standby voltage like you have. Vizio didn't really have issues with caps although I can't say Ive never had any bad. As far as backlights, you can see them through the back of the set with the back off but even if they're not working chances are that's not your issue as Vizio has local dimming and generally they don't all fail so I don't think backlights is your issue. I would suspect main board issues, to be more exact I think your EEPROM has bad data, it's an IC you can change if you have experience in soldering small devices as a new IC can be purchased for about $15, easy way to fix would be replace the main board and they aren't all that expensive in this model...below is a listing for one from shopjimmy, by far the best place to get boards...I wouldn't buy from ebay as in a lot of cases the boards are bad
