I had the same problem. I bought the TV with the same symptoms and couldn't find a solution. So just on a hunch I tried different button combinations on the front of the TV while I turned the main power switch on in the rear. One I got to the Channel up and Channel down the TV came to life and works great. So just hold those 2 buttons down at the same time while you flip the switch on the back. Hold them for about 10 seconds and then you should be good to go.

Red/Orange horizontal lines


it could be that the tv convergence circuit is going bad. One shure way of finding out is to go to the tv feature menu(picture,audio etc.) and select the customer convergence setting, you should get a cross hair pattern(cross in middle of screen). that cross should be white and by aligning the red or blue colors they should move left, right, up or down

VIZIO P42hd PS42a plasma Picture has two vertical lines (one red/orange, one blue) going down the right-hand side of the screen. Lines are clearly visible


The panel is almost certainly bad. The only fix for this is to replace the whole panel which would cost more than the whole TV.

Thin red horizontal lines across screen


replace the focus block or try to adjust the screen control on the focus block for red only. this will affect the white balance of the set so adjust it carefully. the focus block is located on the front inside the set. remove the speaker cover then the 4 screws on the front plate. the focus block is 3" x 2" black box with 6 adjustment posts three for focus and three for screen. adjust only the affected screen (R).
