The problem could be the inverter board, but it could also be that one or more of the backlanps is drawing too much current thus causing the inverter to fail. backlamps draw more current as they age. Many in the profession also recommend replacing your both the master/slave inverters together in a set!

Vizio SV470XVT1A makes screeching sound
This sounds as if it could be a ballast problem, or a switching power supply transformer problem. Both of these can produce this sound. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician repair this set due to the dangerous voltages and currents that could be present. In my experience with these TV I would have the technician pay special attention to the power supply board and the backlight/inverter section which includes the ballast used to fire the backlight.
I hope this helps,

Vizio sv47m connected to a laptop with a HDMI
If the same issues comes up with all the inputs then it is possible that the main board/processor encounters with an error and shuts off.
the possibility of a dry connection or a thermal related issue cannot be ruled out. You can remove the panel and use a good ventillation with a blower fan to see if the fault timing changes. If so check for heat on the board to confirm the suspected component.
