Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

42" Vizio,red stripe down side,and now cutting out!!!

Red stripe down the side.about 2 " wide....Sound familiar? I also have this issue.Been there for a couple of months,and today it started cutting out every couple of min.
Sounds like were TV shopping.It could be worse,I paid almost $2000 for this one,and they are a lot cheaper now.I can look for a better brand.These things don't last forever like they used to.My Fisher TV before this lasted a solid 10 years.I hear the Vizio cutting out behind me as I type.This one doesn't have an HDMI plug on it,so I can't wait for the upgrade.I still think plasma TV's look better.Am I wrong?

Can't get Shifter out of park on a 2005 F150 ford Truck.


If this is a new body style 2004 ( not a heritage or lightning ) did you check fuse #16 ? This is the fuse for the shift interlock switch on the brake pedal.

IF this fuse is good, check the shift interlock section of the brake pedal position ( BPP ) switch ( on the side of the brake pedal lever, usually has a yellow c-clip cover on it ).
The wires for the shift interlock circuit
Fuse #16 to Tan w/ REd stripe wire
Pink w/ light green stripe to the shift interlock solenoid.

If there is power on the Tan w/ REd stripe wire, press the brake pedal down, and check the pink w/ light greens stripe wire for power ( switch is closed when brake pedal is pressed.

If you do not have power on the pink w/ light greens stripe wire, you need a new BPP switch.
If you have power on the pink w/ light greens stripe wire, you need a new shift interlock solenoid.

42" Panasonic Plasma - Vertical red stripe 6" from left side


We originally had a red stripe roughly 3" wide running vertically on the ride edge area of our Panasonic 52" Viera plasma tv. It has now been joined by a solid black stripe of the same width running from the top to the bottom. Living in Germany and purchased at local PX long enough ago that the warranty is likely expired. Now what?

2" vert. red stripe


I have worked on many Vizio televisions under warranty and what you are descriping is often a result of the X boards going bad. If the telelvision is under warranty, contact Vizio at 1-877-MYVIZIO, if it's no longer under warranty, the cost of repair is probably going to be more than the cost of a new tv unfortunatly. I always recommend buying the extended warranty's with these televisions.

Hi. i have an LG 42inch plasma, approx 18 months old. about 2 months ago, a green stripe developed down the right hand side of the screen, approx 1.5 inches wide. last week a 2nd stripe the same width...


Sadly, the plasma screen is failing. The green strip is no longer functioning properly and the failures will continue to progress.

If still under warranty, get it exchanged.

Red lines on right hand side of the screen now no picture on right hand side!


I'm not an expert, but I have determined that the vertical bars that are often red, sometimes blue ... and sometimes both ... are related to a bad control board. I've also read that a common fix is to buy a repair kit with includes the ysus, zsus and control boards ... all replaced together. My experience was that after a month or two with the 1.5" wide stripes, that you eventually loose the entire picture and have sound only. MIne comes back, but won't stay working for very long and the stripes are always there (buy used to fade and flicker sometimes). I'm planning on replacing the control board.
