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

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 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.
