Vizio E65-C3 Intermittent black screen (sound is fine)


This is a 5 year old Vizio E65-C3 that has worked flawlessly until this week; What will happen is, at random times, the screen will go black for approximately 10-12 seconds, and then the picture will come back; The picture both before and after is perfectly good - no dark spots, etc.

When the picture goes out, I can just about make out the image with a bright flashlight.

Sometimes the TV can go a full 24 hours without issue; at other times it might happen 3 times in 10 minutes. Havent managed to start a timer yet, but it appears to go out for pretty much the same amount of time every time.

Sound continues without issue; TV menus do NOT display during the 10-12 seconds.

Wondering if it's more likely a board (power board?) or the LED strip backlights.

Thanks for any responses that come through.

LEDs are high failure parts.

See if lowering the intensity of the backlights, brightness, contrast affect the timing.
