HVPS, high voltage power supply, or computer boards, or LCD screen/inverter is going bad. Happening with mine, usually a HVPS or LVPS (low voltage). See it all the time in health care monitors. Nothing you can do, unless you want to take your TV apart, use a DMM (digital multimeter) and know how to test for voltages. Then when you find the issue, order boards at around 300 to 400 a piece, or 1000 USD for a LCD screen. Then put it back together. Unless its under warranty. Vizios is one year,
Short answer, live with it, or buy a new TV. Now days its cheaper to replace than fix most things.
go figure huh

Vizio tv


Many Visio tv's have the same problem, and also reversed - picture and no sound. The quick fix is to disconnect the power cord at TV - then hold in the power button (usually found on left side 1/4 up from bottom of screen , located on the side/back of the set. a square button all alone) - hold power button in for 30 1,000 mississippi's, yes, that is what a Visio tech told me and it works. I was lucky enough to have the problem start before the 30 return policy ended at Walmart - decided I did not want a product that obviously has a chip failure coming soon! I exchanged for a Samsung and have not looked back!

VIZIO 42 CLASS RAZOR LED SMART TV M420KD picture has lots of green ghosting and thin white vertical line through left side of screen also


Hi Charlene,

please try with video input from any device,and i think you are using local antenna and it has gain problem or your tuner section of the tv is not working correctly.
if distroted pictures comes with video input signal it is video amp and processing unit problem.
you have to go for repair shop for fix that.
regards,
nuwan

4 year old vizio 42 inch tv lcd. While watching tv, the screen started dimming. There is a 4 inch shadow all along left side of the screen and the 1 inch line shadow going down the middle of the screen.


Maybe a power supply or related issue but at 4 years of age the set has reached its life span----parts will be hard or impossible to find.

If you got four years I would retire it and recycle it and then replace it.

P2 42HD - Picture OK on right half ... vertical bars & black on left side


I just got quoted $705 from the Vizio certified repair partner. Nice. Nice and way too expensive. I may as well buy a new TV instead. It certainly won't be a Vizio. They told me a I needed a Y systainer, C systainer and a right-driver board.

Lame. I'm trying to find something local.
