Vizio TV turns on then screen goes blank

TV turns on, screen turns blank, shine a flashlight to the screen, you can see images faintly. If you hold down mute for a few seconds and then press the input button the screen will come back but then will shut down again.

Sounds like the CRTs are going into protective blanking due to the vertical output ic needing to be resolderd. Try resoldering the vertical IC that may possibly fix the issue.

SOURCE: Blank Screen & flashing button

It is one of three things, One is that it's not recieving a signal, mine flash when the computer is shut down, several monitors do this now. The second is that the either the video card is in need of service, or if you don't have a video card in your machine, it is either a connection that is intermittent, check the other end of the cable, or the monitor is in need of service, there is a circuit board that gives it a boost on start up. How old is the monitor and what brand? all the info is needed to go any further, thanks, if it is 5 years old more or less it is the monitor gone bad, more than likely

Does the power light stay on? If so, you have an inverter problem. If the power light goes off, you have a power supply problem.

SOURCE: we just set up our 37 in sharp and get no picture

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

SOURCE: Sharp LC37D44U Power LED was flashing green. TV

I had the same problem. all the service reset would only make the display come on for a few second with no "k" on the screen - only the channel would show up. I purchased a complete set of board for the lcd on ebay, and started swapping them one by one. The inverter boards were the culpret. Tele working 100% since that board swap.

Why won't it turn on?


While it is on, shine a bright flashlight on an angle across the surface away from you. Can you see any faint images on the screen. If yes, then possibly the back lit lamp / board needs to be replaced.

Dim the lights in the room, turn on the set and shine a bright flashlight on the screen. Do you see a faint picture? If you see a faint picture, you have a backlight fault. Could be several things, you could have a bad backlamp, defective inverter, defective 24vdc power supply, or a faulty main board. I would highly recommend you get a diagnosis

Turn on the set, dim the lights in the room, shine a bright flashlight on the screen. If you see a faint picture, you most likely have a fault in the backlight circuit. Are you wanting to repair this yourself?

You need to perform the flashlight test. Turn off the lights in the room, turn the TV on, take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen. Do you see the faint image on the screen?? You could have a defective backlight inverter, defective power supply, or a main board issue. You set will require diagnosis to determine.

Benq fp581 screen goes blank after about half a second evertime i turn on my computer.


Even thought the monitor looks blank check to see if you can see a faint image (shining a flashlight at the monitor sometimes helps). If you can see an image it could mean that the inverter board has gone bad.

I have also heard of an overheated computer causing a similar problem.

Acer 22W monitor goes blank after a couple of seconds. Please help.


tjpartners, Have you determined if your display is BLANK, or just BLACK!!! Yes, it can be both! But sometimes if you shine a brite flashlight about 1" from the screen you will be able to see if the screen is only BLACK, but not BLANK because you can still see a very faint image of the Win-Desktop if you look closely. If you see the image then that means the "switch-mode-power-supply" is only in partial shutdown mode and trying to save itself from a catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure! Do the flashlight trick and do a repost to your original message if possible. 12fixlouie
