gregloholt if it truly shuts down, check the power board. Possibly bad caps or MOSFETS. Check for obvious damage. If it does not turn off completely just turns dark it is a backlight issue. Check power board, main board as well as T-Con board. Vizio TV's do have known issues with voltage regulators failing on the main boards. Let us know what you find.
