Vizio L42HDTV10A powers on, no picture, no sound

Ive had my Vizio for several years and just recently it powered on but no picture or sound. The green power button is on and I can hear what sound like a computer sound when I pt my ear to the vent. I'm taking the back off to see any visible blow outs etc...

Does anyone have any suggestions?

thanksin advance

Apparently from what I've reading those sets have a problem with low dropout voltage regulators. There are several threads dealing specifically with this set at badcaps.

One of those threads... Vizio VW42lHDTV10A no pix, no sound, won't turn off
You're going to need a voltmeter for testing.
