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

1 Answer

Vizio 42" P42HDTV10A Picture very faded

Actually, my tv's picture is kind of like a laptop computer which gets unplugged from 110v. and then has to run on battery. It's almost seems like a low voltage problem. (Just guessing!) All the colors appear to be present, but there is grey/black clouding. And naturally, it is two months out of warrantee.

Also, is this something I can do myself? I am a former electrician with a small electronic background. I have replaced boards before, but not components within boards.

Thank you. I appreciate the help.

Is there a reset for picture on a vizio 42" flat screen model p42hdtv10a?


Hi Bernard,
To my knowledge there is no video reset short of unplugging the AC cord and waiting about 10 minutes then plugging the power cord back in.
The other thing to try is check the source button on your remote and see if its on the correct input.
Hope this helps

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

I have picture but no sound on my 42 inch vizio p42hdtv10a got any ideas? I just replaced the main board and got the picture back but no sound.Sound worked before replacing main board.Any ideas would be...


If you received a remanufactured board it might be defective,Or did you forget to hook back up the speakers? Sounds dumb but happens alot. Speaker wires get in the way,we disconnect them to look at a board or replace one.Often gets over looked.But I have received several defective boards.Hope this helps. Toddthetvmd

Picture fades to black then reappears and repeats fades to black .


Is the sound ok. Yust the Picture. If both dissapear replace power supply board. That is the main big board with the most heatsinks on it. Main power gos from a switch board to main power supply.
