Bad capacitors in the power supply. Open it up and look for swollen electrolytics.

SOURCE: vertical red line on my Vizio plasma

Spent 3 hours removing all what seemed like 100 freaken screws.

Took out the OEM 038A, caution the factory placed some type of heat transfer silicon clear grease on the back of the board so it will feel like it is glued on. Just be very carefull and gentle when prying it apart.

Be warned, you will need a magnifying glas to check those little resistors. They all checked out, no broken solders.

What I did observe is the grease melted down the back of the board and puddled at the bottom of the board and where the resistors sit.

I used rubbing alcohol to clean it all up but left the reside on the square pads. Cleaned the resistors and used a dry paint brush to dust of any lint.

Placed the component back and after 10 minutes the Vertical Red Line Disappeared.

Turned on the set next morning it was still gone. 10 minutes later it re-appeared for a couple of minutes then went away.

I spoke to a kind gentlemen at Electronica-USA.com, he stated that the 060Q is an upgrade to the defective proned 038A ( 038C is also an upgrade ). A tech in Cali stated the 060Q worked perfectly. He has had zero complaints about the 060Q in the Vizio plus he offers a 90 day return policy. Funny thing is the 060Q was designed for LG and Goldstar Plasmas but for some reason they do not work for them but do work for Vizio's. He even states that on his site.

As I type the red line is still gone and stayed off several hours last night.

I think I am going to pull the trigger and replace the 038A to the 060Q and be done with it.

Oh yeah, I asked him if the 060Q needs to be "flashed" with the Vizio program. He never heard of it requiring it.

He has 038C on order they are couple of bucks cheaper. the 060Q is $224 plus S&H.

I found on ebay for $184 free shipping but waiting for the guy to verify no "flash" requirement.

Hope this helps someone.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

P.S. use a power screwdriver, your wrist will thank you. I put mine on low torque as not to strip the heads.

SOURCE: plasma tv has no picture but green led is on

Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes (discharges the ballast/ps) then plug in and attempt to power on. I have the 42P Vizio over two years old and ran into the same problem a few times. First thought was a power supply issue, but the unplugging trick worked. Good luck.

It sounds like the power supply board has failed. On TVs that are this age this is a very common problem. Contact the extended warranty company and have them send a tech out.

HI:
This is a plasma unit and philips plasma's are nortorious for bad power supplys, your problem may very well be the power suppy in the television, it is possible you blew a low B+ fuse on the power supply. There is also a issue with the Y-sustain board failing in this model, If you open the back and looking at the unit from the rear the y board is on the left side of the unit and the PS is in the center. disconnect the Y-sustain power plug from the power supply and turn on the unit if the unit stays on with no red light then the y board is bad. it does the same then replace the Power Supply.

No picture but has sound


The problem can be caused by a bad sustain board (Ysus Zsus) , the popping sound is often caused by a capacitor blowing up.
The TV must be taken apart and tested before eventually replacing sustain boards.
