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.
