Question about Vizio GV42L 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Right half of the screen mostly green and red with vertical strip

My Vizio 42 inch LCD is not quite two years old. The screen is precisely divided in half with the right side having very low resolution and colors only remotely close to accurate with mostly red, green and dark hues. The problem has suddenly gone away a couple of times but has come back. I reset all the settings to factory with no change in the problem.

Appreciate any suggestions. Failing a solution, referral to a repair shop in Sacramento California would be useful.

Thanks.

    Vizio model VU42L FHCTV10A

  • Val Schmal Feb 18, 2009

    There seem to be two boards available for this model, part number 3642-0122-0395 and part number 3642-0112-0150 . Does it make any difference? they both seem to be the same price.

  • Val Schmal Feb 21, 2009

    A search indicates that there are two different mainboards for the Vizio VU42L FHDTV10A. Part number 3642-0172-0395 or part number 3642-0212-0150 . Any thoughts as to which one is the correct board? Does it matter?



    Thanks much for your help

It sound like there is a problem with the mainboard. What is the model number of the TV?

    For "bayval99", the VU42L has to type of panel, LG and AOU. Each Mainboard part # is use for that specific panel use in the TV. Make sure you get the correct one.

More than likely your control board. Available at www.partstore.com Cost could be between $130 and $200. Not that complicated to install if you can use a screwdriver and are careful. Let me know how this works out.

My 52" Vizio LCD (2 yrs old) has power but blank screen


Looks your power supply quit. Get a new one from vizioparts.com might cost a buck and a half,plus an hour of labor, but 52"? deffinetly worth it! Vizio is good on parts. Make sure, have your serial# ready. some sets have been modified within a year, might get a wrong part without ser#.
Take care.

Westinghouse LCD TV - broad vertical green and blue lines


try to go to the factory reset and see if that helps. If not, you can then check your connection. if you use component (red, green and blue for video and red and white for audio), make sure all the color matches when you plug it in. if everything have been checked then you need to replace the main board and it should correct the problem.

Try changing the H/V position in the TV Set Up menu. You can adjust the horizontal and vertical position of the screen and move it enough that the green line disappears from the screen.

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.

Vertical black line on screen


Your set has either a bad driver board or more likely a bad plasma panel.
