    Vizio Tech support was contacted and they determined that the problem would need assistance from a certified repair shop. Vizio gave me a # to call, which I did and they only repair systems 42in or smaller.

When you get that on a plasma it means that there is a faulty built in chip in the signal cable.

    That is a cable problem.
    On a plasma, the cable that carries the signal, and hook up to the screen has a built in chipset.

    When the on cable chip is faulty you get the screen with black signal, from the point where the cable is connected onward.

    Similar problems can also be caused by a faulty sustain card, in this case the no raster area will start from the point were the sustain card is hooked to the plasma display.

Only 1/3 of my 50" dlp screen lights up


Most likely a issue with the optical light engine--it communicates with the digital board in the set--if it is a even loss (not irregular) it might also be something between light source and mirror--there are some shields that can come loose and block part of the screen that way.

Vizio tv cannot hear volume on all of the channels just some.


Try this:
Apparently the TVGOS (TV2_bing.gif Guide On Screen) signal on CBS stations (since the 6/12 digital changeover) can cause the sound to be missing on those channels. Use the SAP button on the remote to page through the SAP options. When you return to the normal setting the sound will be restored. This problem should not occur again unless the SAP button is pressed.

Samsung 50 inch plasma tv screen goes blank temporarily


This could be caused by a loss of video signal either from the connection or from the source. The TV may have detected an error which caused the screen to go blank. If this occurs again, check the cable connections and see if having the TV unplugged overnight resets the TV and eliminates the problem.
