    Horizontal lines roll (like digital interference) for several minutes then clear up. TV works fine after the warm up period.

I have a vizio p42hd TV. It has thin red vertical lines evenly spaced about 3/4" apart throughout the viewing area.


Hi,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

HOPE THIS WILL HELP TO FIX IT.....

Our Vizeo P42 purchased in July 2005 has had a red vertical bar on the left side for about two months. About a week ago it developed vertical lines across the left half of the screen with no picture...


sadly no.
either your panel has been hit and damaged or the panel itself is failing.
without some sort of warranty coverage, your repair cost would exceed the price of replacement.

I need to know where on the display or remote where the settings for sound control for P42HD. I am trying to set the TV to use external speakers and don't know where the settings to change the sound are


Enter the on-screen menu by pressing Menu. Use the Vol+/Vol- buttons on the TV or the left/right arrows on the remote to select the Audio Adjust (second line) sub-menu. Use the Ch+/Ch- buttons on the TV or the up/down arrows on the remote to go to the line labeled Speakers (bottom of the list). Use the left/right arrows to toggle the internal speakers On or Off. Then press OK to save and press Exit to exit the OSD.

With your receiver/amplifier for your speaker system turned on, follow the directions for that unit to finish setting up the connection.

I hope this helps.

Red line down right side of screen


I would have a tech come out and look at it. Sometimes the ribbon connectors from the upper or lower buffer boards have poor or corroded contacts. Should'nt be a major deal since it comes and goes.

VIZIO P42hd PS42a plasma Picture has two vertical lines (one red/orange, one blue) going down the right-hand side of the screen. Lines are clearly visible


The panel is almost certainly bad. The only fix for this is to replace the whole panel which would cost more than the whole TV.
