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

42 inch Vizio will not stay on

Has been working fine. Suddenly I can not get it to stay on. I push the power button, it clicks on and the green light comes on. After a short wait a blank screen comes up the the TV shuts back off. A couple of times it stayed on long enough to see that it said no signal at the top of the blank screen before it tuned back off. I rebooted the cable box, but no difference.
Thanks,

    My Vizio does the same thing. It lights up but the screen doesnt come on. The great thing is that it's not under warranty. So I'm stuck with trying to figure out what the cause is, and how to fix it.

Vizio 50 inch plasma -- remote not working


You can also try to take out the batteries and push all of the buttons with the batteries out of the remote. Then put the batteries back in and push the power button on the remote. If this doesnt work press the two TV buttons at the same time and the remote should be fine.
