Found a 42 inch Vizio flat screen with no cord...bought cord for power...when I hit power button the word Vizio appears in center of screen then shuts off 2 seconds later...can this be fixed?

it had no cord because it was no good

5 inch wide blue vertical stripe on lcd

It can be but rarely the main board, most of these sets have either one or two boards that drive the image on the screen, different names like T-con or Y out etc. the right side board could be the problem or a bad connector or ribbon cable for that side of the screen unit.

Several possible cures and none are a snap to find in most cases.

Hi, I have a Vizio P42. Worked fine for 5 years. Today is has a vertical blue stripe 1.25" wide, 4" from left side of screen. Blue stripe remains even if all inpust cables are removed. Problem is...

it's burning out. that's a sign of tv failing. there is no repair for that if you used it for 5 years, i doubt you would have warranty for that by now, best option is to replace it.

Vertical black line on screen

Your set has either a bad driver board or more likely a bad plasma panel.

The address module that is at the bottom of the PDP in that location is the suspect and the cheapest repair. There is usually 3 to 4 modules at the bottom of the PDP and each one addresses information vertically. If it were just one pixe wide then the PDP would be bad.
