Vizio VA19l HDTV10T, Powers on, Shows video content split

Customer Question

Vizio VA19l HDTV10T,
Powers on, Shows video content for a split second and then shuts off.
I have looked at the power supply, no blown caps nor do I see any on the mother board. I tried turning the power off, holding the power button for 30 seconds and then plugging back up; however it didn't fix the issue.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, Sorry you're having problems. Does the TV actually shut off by itself, or do you simply lose video please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it shuts off by it's self I think.

Okay, I'm not sure what you mean- you think? We need specifics to solve this.

In other words, does picture and sound come up- then you simply lose picture?

Or does the power light go ON with image, then the image cuts out and the power light goes to standby?

Plug the TV on, The VIZIO led on the front is blank. Hit the power button, it turns white and the picture and sound come up for about three seconds and then goes out. push the power button again and the VIZIO LED's turn to a light orange. (I am assuming that is standby).
Hit the power button again to repeat the cycle.
