I have a 50" Vizio Plasma. Comcast cable. red,white,yellow cables (AV 1). Everything plugged in and double checked. I turn the cable box on and TV on. I use the input button on remote to find AV1. Once there, I get "No Signal" so I check AV1 S video even though I have no S Video cable plugged in. Still "No Signal". I try AV 2, Component,HDMI.....etc.....every input displays "No Signal". I bought the TV from Sams Club Dec 2008. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.Bobby

Re: 50" Vizio Plasma reads "No Signal" on all inputs?
Well, your TV is still under warranty. That's the good part.
The only thing I can recommend without voiding the warranty is leaving the TV unplugged for 30min. That way, the TV can reset itself and hopefully correct the problem.
If that doesn't solve the problem, it's time to use the VIZIO warranty.

Some newer TVs do not have the traditional "yellow" video input, known as an "AV" connection. Even without that input, you should be able to use the standard three-color Wii AV Cable that came with the system.
What to Do:
Look for "component" inputs on your TV. These connections have a row of five differently-colored inputs (green, blue, and red for video, white and red for audio). If you have more than one set of component inputs, it's the first set that generally works with standard AV cables. Look for a set that has a green input with yellow around it, or the word "video" just above or below it.
Plug the yellow end of the Wii A/V cable into this green "Y" input. Plug the white end into the audio "L" and the red into the audio "R." Leave the blue and second red holes open.
Turn on your Wii console and set your television to the input select being used.
If you are seeing the image from the Wii in black and white, try the following to get the image in color:
Cycle through your television's input channels (usually with the "Input Select" or "Source" button on your TV's remote control) to find the input select that has the image in color.
If you're only finding the image in black and white, you may need to switch the setting of the input select from a component signal to a standard AV signal. This can be done by:
An on screen menu option. This is often accessed by using the "Menu" button on the remote.
A button on the remote that switches between the standard and component signals. These can be labeled such things as "AV" or "Video."
yellow is video and red and white are audio
you a get by with one audio. i think you are missing your video cable you can get by with two cables just use the white cable as a yellow and plug it into the yellow dvd plug and tv yellow plug and the red will stay hooked up for sound ( you wont have stereo but it should work)
Connect one end of the game console's audio/visual cable into
the corresponding slot on the console if you have an older game
console. If you have a newer console, insert one end of an HDMI cable
into your console's "HDMI OUT" port.
Plug the red and white ends of the audio/visual cable into
the corresponding red and white audio inputs located on the back of your
Vizio plasma TV if you have an older game console. Plug the yellow
cable into the yellow "Video In" input. Depending on which model of
Vizio TV you have, the yellow input may be located either right next to
the audio inputs or it could be located a few ports away.
Plug an HDMI cable into one of your TV's "HDMI IN" ports, if you have a newer console.
Turn on your video game console and your Vizio plasma TV.
Press the "TV/VIDEO" button on your remote to cycle through the various
inputs. You should eventually get to an input that's displaying your
video game console's home screen.
The best way to hook up your VCR is to use the AV jacks (Red, White, and yellow). Plug into AV1 or Video 1 on the back of the TV. Then, plug into Red, White, and Yellow output jack on the back of the VCR. After everything is hooked up, turn your TV channel to AV1 or Video 1 to watch from the VCR.
To record, you'll have to plug your cable box or satellite box to the AV inputs ( Red, White, and Yellow) in the back of the VCR. ( The only thing is it wouldn't be in HD )
The 37" Vizio I just bought has a very confusing feature where the same input can be used as either the Y channel of the component or the full video channel for composite. If you plug a component source into the TV and then select the composite input ("AV" on the remote), you will see a black and white version of the full component signal (makes sense as the Y channel is just the luminance component). As sad as it is, I was stumped by this for a while until I happened to hit "COMP" and got full color. FWIW, the manual warns about this, but it really doesn't emphasize the point. I wonder how many returns they get because of this.
if the TV have a no signal sign which means most of the important part is missing. Try checking your connections. The best way is to hook up a dvd player using AV input (the yellow, red and white). make sure that you turn the device on and whatever input you connected the device to is selected. if your TV is a P50HDM model, the TV will shut itself off after a short period without and input connected.
I bought a wii a few days ago and like everybody else mine too was in black and white with a grainy picture. I have a Panasonic lcd flat screen and thought I had connected it corrected, I got somebody out to have a look at it and found out there are some connections on the side of the TV which I hadn't even noticed before, once I put the red white and yellow leads in these and set the TV to AV3 everything is in perfect colour. Hope this works for some of you.
