Yes this is commonly happening to these plasma tv's, it is the video processing board
and it will need to be taken to a repair shop , because only certified service centers can get these parts from the manufacturer , there is a replacement kit that is available for these problems , do you still have a warranty?

VIZIO 42 CLASS RAZOR LED SMART TV M420KD picture has lots of green ghosting and thin white vertical line through left side of screen also


Hi Charlene,

please try with video input from any device,and i think you are using local antenna and it has gain problem or your tuner section of the tv is not working correctly.
if distroted pictures comes with video input signal it is video amp and processing unit problem.
you have to go for repair shop for fix that.
regards,
nuwan

Picture distortion


Sounds like convergence is off. Need new Convergence amps. Could cost a couple hundred. Check around. If it has an auto converge or manual converge try that first. Check menu

Using a VGA cable to the 'PC in' VGA on the back of the TV, this has worked fine for multiple screens, but now there is colour distortion when watching movies via the laptop on the TV screen, help?


Can you describe the "distortion" that you refer to? Also, were there any changes to the laptop when this occurred or did this just suddenly appear?

Thanks,
Dan

When the screen goes blank, hit any remote function that will show up on the screen-like volume bar. If the display is missing as well, then you have a tv problem. If the volume display is there when the tv picture is not, you may require a software upgrade.
