Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

TV turns on, but picture is red/black

I have a Vizio that is two years old, and while watching the TV it got noticeably darker and now almost unviewable. The screen is mainly black with some red, but I can see the picture and menus. It also has a really short refresh rate with some pixels on the screen not visable. I am wondering what the problem might be, and if it is worth fixing.

You can try the main board and the control board first (this is the lesser of two evils), if that doesn't do it, it's definitely your sustainer board is bad.

The picture on our Vizio V0370M periodically gets darker, then after a while will lighten up.


If this is a brand new TV you may have a bad video card. The other, easier but pain in the but thing is you could be switching from a HD channel to a non HD channel. You will notice a difference. Last if you have an light sensor on the TV (adjusts to surrounding light) that could be tripping but you should have an option to turn that off.

Vizio VO420E- Picture gets darker then screen goes blank


I have the same issue, its caused by the program powersaver when running an HDMI port. if you turn on the TV and your HDMI device close to the same time the info transfered between them tells the TV that the HDMI device is in sleep mode so the tv starts dark then fades black to save power. easy fix, turn on either the tv or HDMI device and wait till it is fully on before tunring on the other.

Picture keeps getting darker


I would need more information as to how fast the picture is getting darker. If it is happens over a matter of hours as you watch it the tv may have a lamp driver issue and requires service. If it has been getting darker over a period of months, you may need a new lamp.

42in Vizio black screen, no sound


I had the same issue happen to my vizio lcd just this weekend. Everyone is telling me is a bulb or backlight or something. It would explain the loud pop and no picture, but I'm not getting sound either so I'm not sure what exactly happened. Only after about 2 years too. I'm trying to find parts to just fix it myself.
