Look through the ventilation slits at the back of the TV with the room lights out. If you do not see white light light bleeding through the back, you have a back light failure. It could be the inverter circuit which lights up the CCFL ( cold cathode fluorescent lamp ). You will need professional help to replace it and could cost you about 70 to 100 $ to fix.

VIZIO TV Black screen. Cannot turn off TV without unplugging.

I had a similar problem after having a Vizio for 2 and a half years. I left the room for a minute, i came back and the screen went black. I didnt hear an arcing sound though. There was still power to the unit and you could see that the back light was working, just no picture, no sound, and you couldn't use any of the buttons. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. It would then start up, with the Vizio logo going from orange to white, and then do the same thing all over, no pic or sound. I would check the ceramic fuse first on the board that gets power from the plug.

HOW I FIXED MINE: I ordered a new "main PCB" from tigerdirectparts.com (you can also use searspartsdirect.com). This is the circuit board with all of the inputs on it (hdmi, cable, etc.) I opened it up, disconnected the old one, put in a new one and now it works fine.I used both serial numbers on the board to search for it online. It cost me $144 to do it, but that's better than $450 for a new TV. My tv is the vx32l hdtv10a. I hope that helps.

Tv stays black

Do you have audio and if so can you change channels to hear other programs? If so ...you have a bad vertical IC. Have a tech turn up the screen control to see a white horizontal line. By your question I would say this will correct the problem.

No Picture -- just a black screen on my vizio vx37L

Did you hear any pops before the screen went black?
You've tried completely discharging it? Disconnect everything off the TV, all cables and power.
Press and hold the power button on the TV for at least 20 seconds.
Let it sit, and in about an hour, plug just the power in (directly to the wall) and see if it comes on. There should be an indicator light, is it white or orange now? Was it a different color before?
Odds are it's a board, be it the main or a video, don't know for sure. If you can take the back of the TV off and see if there are any evident signs of damage, blown or swollen capacitors, burnt traces or resistors/diodes, etc.
