Model Vizio SV420XVT1A will not power up. The Vizio logo is amber, nothing happens when you press the power button.


You will need to have the set diagnosed as there a number of things could cause this. But I would say you're looking at a power supply or main board problem. It is also possible that your key controller (side buttons) is defective. I take it the TV doesn't turn on with a remote either?

Do you have back light when turning on the TV? if you do then just replace the main board should resolve the problem. if you do not have back light, you will need to replace the inverter board(s) depending on your model. The inverter board(s) is located on the left side of the TV facing back of TV. you may have two inverter boards depending on your model. the other is located on the right side of the TV. Both mount vertically.
