Definitely worth fixing. You may be able to locate an inverter on the internet. Try ebay first. Have seen the inverter for that set for under $50.00

No Picture on Vizio 42 in. Plasma


There is no backlight on plasma TVs. If you have a black screen than most likely one of your sustain boards are gone. Board can be purchased on line at about $100. If your TV has no signs of life it's most likely the power board. Any way it would not be that expensive to fix if you are able to take the TV apart and swap the boards. But I need to say that I recommend to do it ONLY if you are qualified enough. Otherwise ask your local TV repair company to service your TV.

For the 42" plasma, you need to change your sustainer boards or your main board to fix the problem. If your TV is still under warranty, call 877-MY-VIZIO and they will have a technician go to your home and fix the problem for free.

For the L42 HDTV, you need to change the inverter boards or the main board. If your TV is still under warranty, call 877-MY-VIZIO and they will have a technician go to your home and fix the problem for free.
