Hi jeff534,
A plasma tv has many components that could cause the issue, it very well could be the video board but without doing some voltage checks from the power supply out it is almost impossible to diagnose here. Please post back with all symptoms and any troubleshooting you have done so far.
Does the screen light up to a gray screen or is it completely dark? Have you tried connecting your video source to different inputs? Do you have electronics repair experience? Do you feel with a Service Manual and guidance from a FixYa expert could you perform voltage checks safely?
Please post back with your findings and we will begin further troubleshooting.

It could be any one of the following problems : X or Y sustain board, bad screen (PDP panel), logic board,buffer boards.
it could be a big problem for someone with no plasma experience. you should take it to a service centre.

Could be the Tcons flex cable connections. If that doesnt solve it then the Tcon would be suspect. If you need a Tcon you can get one from www.tvrepairworld.com

Good day sir Thor!!!!


I already encounter that kind of problem many times..It looks like all normal even the green power light is not blinks or change to red or amber color but still no sounds or picture on TV..

Sometimes it will happen to plasma TV in all brands and model..It cause of faulty main board..

This is the sample picture of main board of your unit..Part # (3850-0142-0150)

http://modulesrus.ecrater.com/p/11497716/vizio-main-a-v-3850-0142-0150

Just replace the board to fix your TV and it works again..

Note: When you install the board make it sure that the static energy on your body discharge to ground to avoid corrupt of main board IC..

EXAMPLE: open the cover then find the main board..before you do that make it sure you hold the metal portion of your TV to discharge static after that you can now freely replace the board and also make it sure to memorized the connector to avoid damage to make it sure take a picture on it before unplug connector for future reference in case..

again discharge static please!!!..Only few tech or other people know this that's why when they install new boards its not works even it is new..I discover this base on my experience and study..

Hope it helps..

Please don't forget to rate!!!!

Thank you using fixya..

I have a vizio model # VP50HDTV20A I have sound but no picture and checked all the fuses on the power supply board and the Y SAUSTAIN BOARD all ckecked good caps look okay.


more then likely you have a bad sustainer board. Do you light coming from the panel. Sometimes theres an IC chip under the heatsinks and that goes bad causing the screen to go blank. Let me know if that helps at all.
