Vizio p50hdtv10a left third of screen is black on all inputs. I still see pixel flicker at start up so I don't think the display is damaged. Out of warranty and of course Vizio is no help.

Check the connections on your Y sustainer board (the board on the left that go vertically if facing back of unit). Also check the driver boards toward the bottom of the TV. Your connection may not be in all the way and that will cause the missing display.

Don't replace anything, Vizio has issued a lifetime warranty for this set because of this problem. No joke, call the customer service line and tell them you got the pop of death. They'll send someone out to 'repair' the set free of charge. If they can't fix it they'll give you a new one. Even if your mfg purchase warranty has expired. Call them and post the results. I've been fixing TV's longer than I care to admit and this is the first time I've actually seen a company stand behind their products like this. I bought a broken tv with the intent of fixing it and after replacing almost every board I could only manage to get the vertical racing stripe line, except mine was purple. I put it all back together and called to find out if there was a recall on this set and within 5 minutes the (Actual English speaking) gentleman told me to sit tight and he'd have a repairman come and do his thing. He did, and long story short, he couldn't fix it. Last week they delivered a new TV to replace this one. I was shocked. I think Vizio will have all my future business.
Good luck.

I've accuired a Vizio P50HDTV10A that was dropped.


Yes, do not bother as it sounds like the display panel is damaged--time for a new set parts cost wise. Since you have nothing to lose open and examine it with the faint hope a plug is loose or off or a board cracked,,,faint chance only.

I have a Vizio P50HDM which will seem to turn on but It displays a small blue rectangle in the center of the screen with the message: "No Signal" I have tried pressing the input button but same message....


Your TV isn't detecting a signal on any input. You can have a bad connecting cable, or a defective source unit, (cable box, satelite reciever, DVD player....). Those are just a couple of possibilities, but a good place to start. Good luck.

I bought this tv broken....original problem was


Anytime you replace the Ymain, it's recommended that you replace both Y upper and lower buffer boards also. Most likely you've damaged the Y again, so I would re-order all 3. In thte future unplug the P/S plug to the Y section and leave it discharge for about an hour before plugging it back in.

it's probably the Time Warner cable box that have issue and not the TV. Try using a DVD player and test the same input, it should work fine.

TV ranking


Hi. You could look up reviews. I personally usually never offer advice on choices, because what I like, may not be what you like..its a matter of personal preference. But in this particular case, I'd go for Panasonic. Why? Better features, better service, easier availability of parts, and better resolution.Plus some nice features. If this answers your question, PLEASE don't forget to rate as fixed. I'd really appreciate it. Enjoy your new tube!!!
