Question about Vizio P50HDTV10A 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Screen flashing The picture began to flash and turn on and off. Well, thanks for the response. I finally hoisted the TV off the wall and took it to the shop because mine never "warmed up" and flashed indefinitely. $400 later and with some board replaced... we're back in business. Next time... I'll probably shell out more $$ up front and get a TV that goes longer than 2 years before failing. Then again, maybe not.

I finally hoisted the TV off the wall and took it to the shop because this TV never "warmed up" such that the flashing went away. $400 later and with some board replaced... we're back in business.

I have sound but no picture on my 32 inch LCDHD TV/DVD. Picture flashes for a second an then the screen goes blank. Thanks Bill


This problem is caused by one of thee problems.
1) The inverter board(s) is bad.
2) Power to the inverter board(s) is off.
3) The CCFT(cold cathode fluoresent light) is bad.

Since the picture flashes for a second you may also check for loose connections for the above items.
Here is a simple test you may also try. With the TV on take a bright flashlight and press it against the screen. Look for an image around the edge of the flashlight. This will verify that an image is being sent to the screen.

Maxent 42" Plasma TV takes 3 - 5 minutes to sync after turning on


I had the same issue....thankfully, I had purchased an extended warranty from Best Buy...I had been in a panic, because I NEVER thought I would pay a grand for a tv, but I LOVE it...anyway.....I had the "Geek Squad" come to look at the tv....the tech took 30 secs....there is a problem with your Y-SUS (Y-sustain board)...it will need to be replaced...and...the tech called another tech, and he advised that the Z-SUS be replaced as well (apparently he had to go back to the same home after a Y-SUS replacement to change out a failed Z-SuS).....retail on Y-SUS is about $300...ebay has them for less than half that, if you think you can do it yourself...keep in mind that "Maxent" is a Zenith/LG product, so finding parts might be a challenge if you base it upon Maxent....hope this helps!!

Screen flashing


I called the Maxent company and talked to a tech who told me this is a thermal problem with either the video board or some other board. He said a TV repair shop could diagnose the problem and the part would be $200 to $400 to replace. We just decided to live with the "warming up period" of a minute or so. We just turn the TV on and leave the room so we don't get seizures from the flashing. Kind of silly, but it works.
