That is most likely the power supply in the TV. It could be the processor board (main board) CPU but that is less likely.

It is a common firmware issue. You need to call Vizio for help.

"I called Vizio and after scanning the receipt and talking to support they told me there is a firmware update. They sent me, at no cost with prepaid return shipping, a black box with an RGB and USB hookup. I connected to TV and pressed a RESET button (following instructions). Then power it on. The next step was to disconnect this box from the TV. Power it off. Then insert a USB flash drive they sent. Turn on TV and update the firmware. This has fixed the TV. It now works perfectly! I am left to wonder how many recently out of warranty TVs have been scrapped because the repair service wants $185 to fix and most people will not call the company because the TV is out of warranty. Most people will not pay repairs considering the TV is less than $300. Hopefully, this post will help others with the same problem. VIZIO fixed!"
