Most plasma TV's have secoundary power boards, witch can be the cause, now I would try if I where you is to unplug it and let it set a hour or two, if that did not work then the tv will need to be looked at locally. The cause can be a bad power board inside the TV witch is a major cause why a Tv would have a power light put no function at all.

Hope this helps if you have any questions as to what parts to buy is a best resource.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

My universal remote and vizio remote no longer operate the tv. how do i fix it.

I have the same problem. I just called Vizio and they advised me to take the batteries out and press each button two times, replace the batteries, and try again. When that didn't work, they said they were going to send me a new remote. I told them the universal didn't work either and they said they have to send the factory remote first, if that doesn't work they then have to send out someone to service it. Their support is 1-877-698-4946. Have serial number ready.

Standby power usage of the 42" Vizio Gallevia?

According to a Cnet review of the 42" Vizio Gallevia, the standby power usage is only .75 watts. Because it is so low, I now have no concern about leaving the set in standby mode. Virtually no savings to be realized by unplugging the set between usage.

THATS FROM THEM my vizio is may 2006 vizio and thats their solution. They told me it might only be one or the three boards and the part number is 8004328542! They said I could buy it and see if it works where to get the part.. online I guess bc there is no way in H--- that I would pay 210 for the part from them.

Depending on the manufacture of your set there may not be anyone to service it.  Some manufactureres require you to ship the set to them for service.  The serial number will give you the inormation you need.  If the serial number is all digits the set is made by Akai and most parts are available from Fox International.  If the serial number is alpha numeric you need to call VIZIO OR V,INC. WEB SITE HTTP://VINC.COM. 1-888-849-8900. DECISION 1 IS THE DISPATCH COMPANY FOR THIS PRODUCT.
