I've seen a couple of other threads that are similar but with no real solutions. I have a 2005 Vizio L30. When it sits for awhile you can turn it on, it will stay on with picture for about 20 seconds, then it shuts off. The blue led at the bottom turns to purple. The purple led then continues to cycle on and off. If you try to turn the tv on again it will not work at all. If you let it sit again for a half our or so you can turn it back on for about 20 seconds. Anyone have any advice?

Re: Vizio L30 Power on off
I do not know exactly what is wrong with your TV. I did study the manual and of course it wa no help. I did run across the last page where it said something akin to" Our professional Technicians can probably solve your probalem over the phone and save you a bundle on Shipping". So i say to you USUBen, Give calling Vizio a chance. Heres the number.

If the motor runs in reverse to an Oster which uses counter clockwise thread then it follows that your thread should not be counter clockwise. If it comes loose when you turn it on surely the thread on the coupling must be faulty because according to your description the action of turning it on can only be to tighten the coupling. Most couplings with a thread that I have seen are counter clockwise so you will probably struggle to find another brand coupling to match.
More than likely the compressor grounded out blowing the switch, which I've seen a few times dealing with that brand. The times that I've ran across this situation, the main control board inside the refrigerator had to be replaced as well because the compressor sent a surge up to that section severely burning the board.
This is not real clear to me, sounds like the locks don't work when pressing the lock side of the button ( as in the unlock works ). If so, the lock actuator is most likely the cause.
If this is the PDL do not have power to them, did you check fuses 6, 40, 18 & 107 ? The PDL are controlled by the VSM ( Vehicle Security Module ) which these fuses are associated with it. If you have a door keypad, does it still illuminate when you press a button ?
If installed, and it does not, could be the connector to the VSM or the ground to it. The VSM is mounted on the rear cab wall, behind the seat back in the Super Cab and Super Crew cab configurations. There is a thread in here on removing the rear seat, to get to it.
Usually the problems seen with the connector are for the auto lamps, so I would suspect the ground wire ( seen this 2 times, not real common ).
I EMAILED VIZIO ABOUT MY PROBLEM. THEY RESPONDED IN 3 DAYS. THE TECH AND I THEN TRADED A COUPLE OF EMAILS. HE CONFIRMED THE INFO ABOUT THE TV WITH ME. HE EMAILED ME THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM AND PART NUMBER. IT WAS THE MAIN BOARD. I ORDERED THE PART AT VIZPARTS.COM FOR ABOUT 180.00. INSTALLED IT MYSELF AND THE TV WORKS FINE. I WISH IT HAD BEEN UNDER WARRANTY BUT IT WAS 18 MONTHS OLD AND THE WARRANTY WAS FOR 12 MONTHS.
