Question about V, Inc. Vizio P4 Plasma Television

1 Answer

I had a vizio 42in plasma repaired at a tv shop for a bad tuner box. when i got it back and home and playing, the thing went black, started buzzing, and then i noticed the inner screen was cracked. At this point the screen slowly faded to black from the outside in. Is this a problem related to plasmas, or did the repair shop mess up my set in the process of fixing my tuner? Also is it even worth trying to repair or should i replace it entirely? Thanks for any advice and feedback!

Your plasma set basically had the gas in it escape. Its pretty much worthless at this point. I would definitly take it up with the repair company and demand a replacement tv.

Visio 42in. Plasma TV


The TV is a Plasma, it does not have a "BackLight" as it were, that is for LCD's only.

Vizio are fobbing you off. It will need either a Y-Sustain & Buffers or a Z-Sustain.

42in Vizio black screen, no sound


I had the same issue happen to my vizio lcd just this weekend. Everyone is telling me is a bulb or backlight or something. It would explain the loud pop and no picture, but I'm not getting sound either so I'm not sure what exactly happened. Only after about 2 years too. I'm trying to find parts to just fix it myself.

HELP PLEASE Vizio Plasma tv broken again - possible driver board?


This could cause by the power supply or the mainboard.

- If the LED stay Green when you turn on the TV. But you can not turn it off, in this case the main board has failed. Replace the mainboard will fix the problem.

- If the LED light always stay at Orange, you can not turn on of off. In this case the mainboard also has failed.

- If you turn on the TV you will hear the power supply click on the LED is green then it click off the light turn Orange. In this case the power supply has failed.

Which boards did the repair shop replace?

Hope this will help.

Trys to power up makes Buzz, then nothing but light stays green.


those vizio plasma have a lot of problems, its still most likely the Ysus board, but it will have to be tested to know for sure. If you bought it at coctco you are in luck, if bought a couple of years ago they will give you a full refund. you can try replacing it yourself by checking shopjimmy.com or ebay
