Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
Tv has very low hour use in my bedroom (120 hrs.). Went to turn on and I had sound and no picture or menu display. Tried doing what Vizio says to do on there site unlug for 3 minutes to reset with no results. looked for blown fuse and they are still white. from what I have read on the forums it could be a bad power supply. Is there someting else I need to look at or should I just try changing out the power supply. Production date is October 2006 and like I say very low hours. Thanks for any help
My VIZIO P42HDTV10A had sound but no picture. I checked the fuses with a continuity tester and found one of the fuses on the board that controls the picture was bad. With a little luck this will solve the problem, and save me a $400 repair with about an hour of my time and $3.00 spent at radio shack. The tester did cost me $19.00. So all together a $25 solution.

Yes you need to check the fuses for continuity first. They may look good but could still be bad. Do that with an ohm meter. Let me know if you have one. Thank you and have a good day. jay
