Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m Jack Perhaps I can help you with this problem , let me know when you`re ready ?
When this happens is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?If you are not sure then darken the room and turn the tv off and on again while you observe the screen .Can you see the tv`s own menu for example ?
O.k then the first suspect here would be the power board but then again the LED driver board could be in cause , those 2 boards work closely together and they are pretty cheap to buy .
How do you want to proceed from here ?Look into this yourself or the repair shop ?
Let me know and i will help you along if you wish to look into repairing this yourself ,otherwise i will give you the details and costs you could expect.
Yes I`m sure but first , this tv was made in 2013 , you don`t happen to have an extended warranty ?
Could you give me your zip code ?
This was bought in march 2015 you mean ??
If so then it would still be under warranty and I will give you the details for that , not a repair shop or it will cost you somewhere around $250 to $300 to have it repaired at home .
Can you confirm march 2015 ?
If you know that it was less than a year then first you will need to contact vizio for the warranty claim .
This has to be done before anything else , you need to obtain a service authorization number .
Here is a link where you can get the details ;http://www.vizio.com/warranty
