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

1 Answer

LCD TV 32LX2R

We have had our LCD for nearly 2 years, for quite a while we have had a smear down the right hand side of the screen, it is really bad when you watch sport or something where the screen is mainly 1 colour. Any suggestions ? It is like it when you watch normal tv, satellite or dvd's ?

My ns-lcd42hd09 insignia tv only displays the right side of the screen clearly until the tv is on for about an hour then it will display both sides correctly. Today it never cleared up, stays really dark...


Having same problem. Smacking it or applying pressure often works. Extremely annoying (inconvenient) that a nearly $1000 machine breaks down very soon after one year ( how long the warranty is, of course)

Dark streaks on the inside of the screen


If it's an LCD TV, then what your seeing is Liquid Crystals inside. Chances are that someone has bumped the LCD or damaged it, and now the screen is broken. The "Dark Lines" are from misfiring pixels which is a sign that the LCD is damaged and will either stay the same, or get much much worse. I'd lean towards much much worse.

Just keep it until it really gets bad then just replace it. You can have it fixed, but the repair would cost more then just buying a brand new one.

LCD Philips 26pf8946 after about 45mins right hand 1/3rd picture not viewable


Hi Darnez,
It sound like to me that one of the boards that power the bad side of the screen is getting hot and quitting. The boards are not too expensive to replace but getting them is generally the big problem. ( At least for our company). The set would be worth tkaing to a local shop and have it looked at, but replacement costs are going down every day it seems.
Good Luck
I hope in some way this has helped

Picture smear and screen brighter on the right hand side


If you know how to read a service manus then what you are looking for is a possible bad cap on the 200v source feeding the video output collectors or video output IC. That is the first suspect.
