    Either the backlight has failed or the backlight driver has failed.

    TVs, especially low end makes, are not cost effective to repair unless you do it yourself.

    Vizio TVs are especially hard to get parts for.

    A likely cause is backlight failure.   

    Take it to a TV repair shop.
