Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hello My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with this.A few questions coming up and please note that there may be delays between replies if i have to gather various info ;Please send me a hello so i know you can see my reply ?
Also ,Could you please give me the model number written on the tv`s back cover ?
O.k but you were saying vizio in your opening post ??
Is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?If you`re not sure then darken the room and turn the tv off and on again while you observe the screen .
O.k then turn it off and when you first turn it on ,do you get a brief flash of light on the screen before it goes dark ?
O.k then there is more than a good chance that you have defective LED strips at the back on the panel and this shuts down the whole thing
Those LED`s are supposed to last a zillion hours but they do not , they are failing all over the place and not only in sanyo
Here is a link to give you an idea what is needed ;
Mind you they don`t have it in stock at this time , these guys can`t keep up with the demand but if you were to look into this yourself then you could sign up there to be notified when back in stock but i must say that this is not an easy job to do and you will have to be comfortable working with electronic circuits , here is a video that shows you how its done , not your model but the same job ;
If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $250 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .
You can buy a new 42" tv for what it would cost to have it repaired by the way .
You could take a chance on the led driver board that cost around $40 but i doubt very much it would fix the problem
Sorry for the bad news here and wish there was some sort of reset but not the case
