Question about V, Inc. Vizio P50HD Plasma Television
Vizio 37 inch HDTV 1080p is connected by HDMI to Panasonic DVD recorder DMR-EZ48. The Vizio displays a pink screen occasionally when switching channels and between DVD recorder functions while the Vizio is on the HDMI input. There is a flash of pink with a light colored line in the middle while switching between channels even when the screen does not turn entirely pink. We have tried 4 different HDMI cables including a high speed Monster cable and two different Panasonic DMR-EZ48 recorders and the results are the same. This only happens with the HDMI connection. The Component connection and AV connections appear to not have this issue. The Vizio tech support person did not have an answer to this other than to try troubleshooting with the different cables and recorders.
I work as a contract technician for Vizio, and I can tell you from experience that replacing motherboard is one of the only solutions to this problem. The other solution if under warranty is to replace it. If you experience red, blue, or green pixels where dark shades (like nose, eyes, clothes, etc), call Vizio and accept nothing less than a full replacement! I have had situations where I replaced motherboard and within 2-3 hours the pixels return. Hope this helps.

Sounds like you may be getting some red pixelation. take a picture of the TV screen if you can capture and forward it to vizio. a lot of parts are warrantied for life so check with vizio support. could also be an issue with av cord from main board. hope this helps. J
