Question about Vizio P50HDTV10A 50 in. Plasma HDTV
Hi, I have a Vizio 50inch plasma TV - P50HDTV10A. The problem is when I turn it on I get a flashing screen black then white, everything else seems to work fine, sound is still there, all the buttons work, also all the inputs work, just the flashing screen. When I turn it off the power light flashes between green and yellow Ten (10) times then stays yellow. Same thing happens when I unplug it then plug it back in. The Vizio logo in the center of the TV has not lit up for a year or so and does nothing.

The main board has failed. Replace the main board will fix the problem.
By the way, where did you buy the TV? If you have bought it from Costco then try to give them a call to see if it still under warranty.
Hope this will help.

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.

there are two possibilities to this problem. First and cheapest way is to replace the main board. Second, replace the inverter board. This is the boards that are mounted vertically on both sides of the TV.
