How to Check the Power Board on a Vizio TV

Every flat screen TV has a power board where the AC plug fits in. When the power board fails in a Vizio TV, it is unable to transfer the electrical current throughout the TV. This can also be caused by a blown fuse or transformer, and all of these items should be checked first. These tasks are an easier, more economical repair than replacing the power board on a Vizio TV.
