Question about Televison & Video
It looks like your picture is zoomed, that control should be on your remote. Or change your picture ratio. Tints are all messed up. I would bring everything back down to black and white and start adjusting back up. To do this you have to be in picture mode custom (your pic shows your in standard mode). Everything else is preset for you. Go into all your settings and make adjustments. I also own a Vizio. It took me several attempts to adjust the picture to my liking.

I would suggest to remove the connector from the board and the wire harness and solder the wires directly to the board. In many cases the high current that runs through that connector makes the connections overheat due to the poor contacts at this location. A solid solder connection will last longer.

Ok, I have some news on this that I know you will not like, but the whole point of this site is to try and help you fix the problem, or at least, try and point you in the right direction.
I have done some extensive searching on this problem over the last month, as I have also had a friend with a similar problem that you are describing. There is a manufacturer's fault on the main power board, this has been recognised by Gateway, but as it happens inconsistantly (it may happen after a few months or a few years), they are not prepared to recall the product.
Obviously this doesn't help us as consumers that buy their products. The blue screen that you describe happens with alot of visual hardware inc. graphics cards that affects the whole market, and has now become affectionately known as The Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD).
If you are one of the lucky one's, and it is still under the manufacturer's warranty, get it sent back asap, and ask for a replacement to a similar model. If not, the only thing you can do is get it repaired or get a new/2nd-hand one.
Like I said, I'm sorry this isn't the news you wanted, but I didn't think it was fair for you to hang on.

hello imvega7, as i know, 42 inch is a plasma display TV.
Refer to your image, and my experience that symptomp because of connection between buffer PCB and panel. Some cases, dirty conection may cause this symptomp.
Un plug power cord, open rear cover, fine pcb on upper or lower panel.
unplug flat cables from pcb buffer, clean soket using a brush. And also clean flat cables using celaner or alcohol.
Wait untill that conection dry. reassembly and try it.
i hope that help you.
