Hello and sorry you're having problems.

Are there currently any signs of life at all on the Vizio (power light white, orange, or blinking, etc.)?

Hello my name is Anthony
In every case where their is no power light lit and you are sure their is power reaching the set the back of the set will need to come off (set unplugged from the wall)and some checks carried out using a meter (volt\amps\resistance)this is just to verify if the powerboard is bad, are you able to do that yourself?if so please let me know I will provide more details, the most likely suspect as it stands now is the powerboard itself.
Please let me know if you can do work or need more info
A positive rating is appreciated thank you
Regards
Anthony

If it is the power board .........is it expensive or should I consider buy a new set?
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.
Actually the power-board replacement for one of these sets is about $30 so very cheap you can get one from www.shopjimmy.com ideally get the partnumber found on the original board (trace powercord to powerboard to locate it)
If you need anymore help please let me know
