Five month ago, I bought a Vizio refurbished 47 Inch flat screen TV, Model E470VL. After a power outage, the tv comes on to a seemingly test pattern screen, but will not boot beyond that. There is no sound. Sometimes the boot up word Vizio will briefly appear on the screen. In any event the screen shows the test pattern effect for a few seconds and a black screen appears. The vizio power indicator remains lit. I am new to LCD tv technology, but I suspect the main board is the problem. I can upload a picture of the screen if needed.

Sounds like you had a high voltage power surge just before going out
Are u using a high grade reference center or surge stage 2 or 3?

    I researched the problem and repaired it myself. It was the main board. I purchased one from Shop Jimmy (shopjimmy.com)

What is wrong with my vizio e470va 47 inch it has sound but no picture

Back-light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

No picture or sound

First of all check the power cable is connected to both the TV and power outlet correctly and that no fuses are blown.

I got a 47' vizio hdtv. i get power to it put wont turn on

In order to ensure, it is not caused by the input device, connect a DVD player and see. Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation/rectification.

How do I turn my Vizio E470VL CC off?

CC is either coming from the box or the set--if grayed out on set means that option is closed---you have to look for it in the set and the BOX menu--have you tried removing box from use?
