It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

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.

You can't. The controls on the television are normally basic, unless you can get to the menu.

Google

make model replacement remote control

They are usually 20 bucks on Amazon, eBay or specialist retailers that only deal in replacement remotes.

There is a round connector on the rear of the TV. Aerial cables are usually a standard type, fairly cheap and easy to buy. If you don't have a roof mounted aerial there are plenty of 'Set Top' aerials out there. I've attached a photo to show you what the connector looks like. They just push in.

Unplug it over night to reset. If that doesn't fix it, I recently wrote this.

Every day we see this type of post regarding self television repair. This explains why you can't diagnose television problems on an online forum. The television sections are really only for help with manuals, wall mounts and remote codes.

Here are similar questions that we see often.
Question:

I've replaced everything in my television because it previously had a black screen with no lighting. Now it doesn't turn on at all and all I have is audio. What could be the cause ? Or

Turns on and sound works fine, but the picture is distorted (solarized? polarized? not sure what the term is) I replaced the main board, but that didn't fix it.
Or

I have an LG 55LM6200-UE with a dim lower-left. I just replaced both LED strips with no resolution. There is no physical obstruction visible, so this has to be a cable or board problem, right?
So your television stops working properly and you think it must be easy to fix, because you can buy boards on eBay, and you can watch YouTube videos. So you make a decision, you buy a board and you fit it, but the television still doesn't work as it should! This is a classic case of the 'let's try replacing this' method of television repair and illustrates why it is a bad idea. It doesn't work for a number of reasons.

To correctly diagnose issues, you need to know every board, what it does and every component on the board and what they do. You need to know which part has failed, replace the failed component, or replace the board. The parts you purchased off eBay were probably out of scrapped sets and not tested. The part you put in was dead when you put it in, so you just moved on to another guess at what might be the cause and replace a board that is fine. And so it goes on, you change all the boards and it still doesn't work because your first replaced board was a dud. Did you notice the large print that says 'NO Refunds, NO Returns'. This is to stop you sending your old one back and saying it didn't work, but the unscrupulous sellers use it as an excuse to get money for selling items that may, or may not work! The course to be a television engineer is 2 years full time education, and they own thousands of dollars of test equipment. Take it to someone that knows how to diagnose and fix. It is by far the cheapest option. The part that failed might be a 20 cents fuse diode hard soldered to a board. They will charge you $5 in parts and a couple of hours labour. It's not the fix you want to hear, but it really is the best advice.

  • To reseat the cable, unplug the power cord from the device, and plug it back in. Make sure it is securely and tightly connected to the device. Do the same in the wall outlet. If the power cord is connected to a power strip or surge protector please verify that the surge protector/power strip is turned on.
  1. If the device still isn't powering on, try plugging another device into the outlet to make sure it's getting power.
    • If another device (like a lamp or cellphone charger) is getting power from the outlet, the outlet is working, your device is experiencing an issue

Remove your power cord, then remove the back panel. The backlight is in behind the panel and since this is a Vizio, repair manuals are not easy to come up. You'll have to experiment or check YouTube to see if you find a Vizio backlight repair.
