Sorry long delay on seeing this - I forgot I had a Fixya account! Unfortunately this is the symptom of a dead or dying Inverter - LCD screens have two sets of Inverters - left and right. Both are high voltage (i.e. usually far higher than the input voltage) and are used to turn on the back-lighting in LCD displays. the lights themselves are much light Fluorescant tubes - which is why a White screen is so White. What you are experiencing is that the Right side inverter is pretty much end of life - it could be a general fault with the unit in manufacture or just a fault that has developed. It could also be the mainboard itself not supplying the correct signal to the inverter circuitry to turn it on. It could indeed also be the backlight itself.

SOURCE: Vizio L37 37" LCD screen screen is cracked.

I agree your screen is cracked. It's smooth to the touch because you're not actually touching the LCD section of the screen, just the protective coating. The advantage of owning an LCD TV over plasma... you can replace the screen either by going to the manufacturer or some place like e-bay. It's not a difficult thing to do if you take your time and pay attention to the details.

Good Luck

SOURCE: P2 42HD - Picture OK on right half ... vertical bars & black on left side

I just got quoted $705 from the Vizio certified repair partner. Nice. Nice and way too expensive. I may as well buy a new TV instead. It certainly won't be a Vizio. They told me a I needed a Y systainer, C systainer and a right-driver board.

Lame. I'm trying to find something local.

SOURCE: vizio tv first screen had bluish discoloration and than few days later a pop and screen went black .ANY IDEA OR SUGGESTION.

This is called the pop of death! If you call vizio they will ask you if you heard a pop, this is a common issue and unless your under warrenty your looking at 916$ to fix it. (assuming you have no sound! If you do its 430$ plus tax for parts and repair. You can buy a used one on ebay for that price!

I have the parts numbers if you want them!
Call vizio if you have had this system for under a yr the will fix it free!

As for me my 50 and 42 inch had this issue and well I am out of warrenty.. I hate vizio lol!

These sets use for the most part two boards--each drives the screen on one side---also possible as suggested here the problem is inside the panel or where it connects to these boards--if inside the panel (the entire front screen unit) it is fatal as it cannot be got at and the display costs more than the set did new.

Right half of screen is Black with a White vertical stripe


Yeah, I have this exact same problem, except my mom slammed my laptop shut in frustration around half an hour ago, so that's why it's like this. The right half of my screen is black with two colorful stripes (mostly white), but the left half is visible. I've researched a bit and found out that this is because the LCD in your monitor has burnt out, and since you don't have a monitor to attach, the only thing you can do is to go to where you bought the laptop and either get it fixed for free or return it for a brand new one (if your warranty still stands). If not, you might as well get a new laptop. I think my warranty has expired, so I'll get a new laptop, hopefully.

Hope this helps!
