Vizio P42HD TVThe LH side of the screen is black - no picture with vertical fixed lines

    left hand side of the screen is blank with different colored bright verticle lines of various hues going down that side of the screen. Every time it is turned on that side is still not working but the lines have changed position and color and number of lines - very random.

This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

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.

Screen is half picture and half black with vertical colored lines


I had the same issue. I could get the tv to work intermittantly by pressing on the boards while playing. This points to bad solder joint, so I resoldered every molex plug connector, and it nows works like a charm.

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.
