BTW........I sell more Vizio TV manuals than all other TV manufacturers combined. Although I do have a friend who has one and swears by it.

Hi did you ever have any luck fixing it? You may want to check the surface mount fuses on the main board as that seems to be a common problem in these tvs.

My gv47l is also not working. I found a burnt resistor at R847 on the power supply board. Does anyone know what part I need to replace it?

While watching a good movie - my screen went light blue ( assuming just the backlights were on) with no picture. The remote would not turn the set off.

I unplugged it ...repowered it and the remote would turn it on but only had a black screen and no other remote control functions....

GV47L 10a manufactured Nov 2006....

Like any good engineer i immediately removed the TV from the wall and grabbed another tv to finish the movie

Opening the set up (wow there are a lot of screws) i saw NOTHING unusual nor did i smell anything burnt.... I started digging around and found that all the caps looked perfect, power supply seemed to be working ok then i noticed 3 surfaced mount fuses on the motherboard and one on the master inverter.

The one on the master inverter was fine but f3 on the motherboard was open - this is one of three little fuses on the top right hand side of the main board - right under the power connector as to the left of the audio connector.....

i did some checking online and found that others had this problem and replacing the fuse did the trick.

i could not find a 1.5amp /125v surface mount fuse not even at Fry's - what i did find is a 1.5amp / 250v 2ag fuse at Radio Shack ( 4 of them for $2.99) soldered some pigtails and then soldered the pigtails inline with the old f3.....made sure that everything was clean and insulated and wow - it worked.... My GV47L did not become a big doorstop....

while i was at it i figured i would try to fix the audio buzz that seemed to be caused by the backlighting....some people reported it might be a grounding issue but i saw nothing definitive so........

i built a shield for the audio card and moved the ground to the main board ground and buzz is gone....i wish i thought to take pictures while it was all apart

so this is a long way of saying thank you to everyone on this board that helped me discern the issue

tip - if you look around the service manual is available online for free
