What cable are you connecting to get sound?

You have replaced the led strips but no picture so are the led lights actually lighting up?

Have you performed the flashlight into the screen test to see if you can see a faint picture?

Some VIZIO TVs have a headphone jack built in. You can determine if your television has a built in headphone jack by looking in the user's manual in the specification section which is normally located towards the end of the manual.

This is a backlight issue, it is either the led backlights or the T-con board, further testing with a circuit tester is required to determine which.

This is a backlight failure! Either the T-con board or led backlights, further testing will need to be done to determine which it is!

Careful inspection of the screen would indicate if broken or not!

Inspect the screen carefully and if a crack is seen then it is broken!

Press and hold the 'Mute' button on your remote for 5 seconds to ensure your screen isn't muted. Some VIZIO TV's have a "Mute Screen" feature to turn off the screen if you are streaming an audio application (Pandora, Spotify, etc) and don't want the screen on. https://support.vizio.com/s/article/No-Video-No-Picture-Black-Screen

RCA cable connectors (red,white, yellow) are usually for an analog setup. You could still use these for "component" setup, but know the difference with color stamps as follows:

Component color stamps are "blue, green, red" ( blue is marked Pb, green is marked Y, red is marked Pr)

RCA color stamps your using are "red, white, yellow"

Here are the proper hook up method for "Component" using your "RCA" connectors:

On both the TV and DVD component setup:

Plug the red RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pr (red)

Plug the white RCA fitting in the component port marked "Pb (blue)

Plug the yellow RCA fitting in the component port marked "Y (green)


Be sure this setup is the same for the TV's component input ports, and the DVD's component output ports.

i-Note:

For optimum picture quality you may want to purchase component cables as the gage is thicker giving better impedance match resulting in better picture and sound quality.

Shine a light into the screen....if you can see a faint picture then you have a backlight failure.

Yes, take it to your local service centre in the link. Don't try and fix it yourself as it NEVER works.

I am certainly no expert about such things but a friend had a similar problem until he discovered he needed to get into the menus and switch on the port he needed to use.

I dont know how you could have a back light seen through the cabinet on the back and not see the picture. The unit uses LED backlights and just one LED can cause the power supply to sense the current change and not power the display. Replacement LED strips are about 75 USD

The LED backlights can have one LED fail and the power supply senses it and shuts down.
