Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

2 Answers

Blue streak We just bought a Vizio p42hd and there is a blue streak on the right-side of the screen; top to bottom. It appears for a while (30 minutes or so), goes out for a while (10 minutes) and then reappears...it's repetitive! Would appreciate any help you can provide for fixing this problem; otherwise, the picture is great! The streak appears with all input modes (svideo, video 1, tv, etc) and when a DVD is playing. Thank, Joan Propst

When I turn on my Vizio P42hd I get lines of different colors down the left side of the unit from top to bottom. Is this something that can be fixed? My email is mdrye@holtville.k12.ca.us


This problems is not causes by a person or some objects by hitting ur LCD tv picture screen panel?If,yes,by a person or an objects by hitting the picture screen panel.This tv is not repairable only can be by replaced the whole entire LCD picture screen panel only,sorry than this tv is not worth repairing.Because by replacing the tv LCD picture screen panel itself,will cost the same as a new tv.If these colors strips show up by itself,yes,tv it is repairable.The board call the T-Con decoders board is dead.This board sit right at the bottom right in the middle of the LCD picture screen panel.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a refurbish T-Con decoders board for the replacement.

VIZIO P42hd PS42a plasma Picture has two vertical lines (one red/orange, one blue) going down the right-hand side of the screen. Lines are clearly visible


The panel is almost certainly bad. The only fix for this is to replace the whole panel which would cost more than the whole TV.

Blue Streak


I had the same problem w/ the same TV about 6 months ago. You need a new optical engine. Hopefully you are still under warranty. Once that was replaced, the tv looks great.

BLUE VERTICAL LINE


The address module that is at the bottom of the PDP in that location is the suspect and the cheapest repair. There is usually 3 to 4 modules at the bottom of the PDP and each one addresses information vertically. If it were just one pixe wide then the PDP would be bad.
