Vizio 50 inch plasma picture problem

I have a P50HD Vizio. 2 years old. Out of nowhere ths screen changed from a perfect picture to a grainy/grey with a slight flicker. THis happens in all modes no matter what is plugged in. When I cycle thru the various inputs the tv is know slow to respond, instead of snapping to av 1 or HD 1 it responds like a slow blink... I can still see some color but barely. any ideas???

Re: Vizio 50 inch plasma picture problem

Once minute my Vizio P50HDM was working the next minute the picture was barely visible. I called Vizio and they gave me a number for a repair company. Their company gave me a $650 estimate. I called a few other local placed and they said that this is a very common problem for this model TV. All the places gave me an estimate of between $600 - $700. I called Vizio to complain, but they are not interested.

4-year-old 50-inch flat screen made a loud 'bang' and picture went out. The noise was more mechanical than the type of pop or snap you'd expect if a capacitor blew. The audio is still ok.

Depends on the physical size of the cap; there are some larger ones in your set that would produce a 'bang' but you should also have gotten a whiff of the airborne chemicals then.

Green light flashes but funny noise comes up and no picture comes

there are two possible problem that you may have. First, your main board may be defective (this is the cheaper of two evil) and second your sustainer boards (these are the two boards on the sides of the TV use to power up the screen). you can get parts from or if you want to do it yourself. If you're not familiar with it, you can call ITI at 888-248-2708 and they could have a couple of techs go to your home and do it for you.

Vizio 42 Plasma Pop

My 42 Inch Vizio experienced the pop of death out-of warranty. I bought mine at Sears and they sent a technician over within a day or so. It turned out to be in the power supply and they shipped a board right out. Total including parts and labor was $280. Although no expensive TV should die after less than 2-years, Sears seems to be able to deal with repair in the home without drama.
