Vizio GV42L

Vizio GV42L
tv powers on and then turns off 3 seconds later

it is an old tv from 2006 so no receipt or warranty

How should I fix

Is there a reset button.

If there is a reset function using remote; it would be difficult to type in 3 seconds

How a look at this video. It is a fix without opening the device.
Basically, you turn on TV with the input button and change to TV

12 years Old TV and you still want to fix it ?
It will be very hard for anyone here to make any advise since it can be problem related to electronic board or power supply.
For very cheap money you can get new generation TV set with much better picture and resolution.

Think about it.
Fixing it can be more expensive than purchasing new one this days.
