My Vizio TV will not power up.. The orange logo on the front

Customer Question

My Vizio TV will not power up.. The orange logo on the front does come on. I have replaced the power supply board but it still does not turn on. I have looked at the main board and do not see any obvious issues but have not tested the main board.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Vizio is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: 5 years old Model VW32:L HDTV20A
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: Nothing comes on the screen just black. When I press the power button there is no response
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: It happened without warning about three weeks ago. I first replaced the ceramic fuse on the power supply board and then replaced the entire board.
JA: Anything else you want the tv expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I guess I'm trying to determine if it is worth repairing or should I just buy a new TV. Thanks,
