Thanks for the info.
TV symptoms "When it is turned on the vizio signal lights up fot about 5 seconds and then it switches off" indicate main board failure and swapping the main board in TV will help to resolve the problem. Please check following supplier to get replacement main board if you're trying to repair the TV yourself as main board would be available around $49..
