Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

2 Answers

Sony KV34HS420 Hello, My TV has been great since I purchased it.  Today I have no picture, just a black screen.  I have no sound either.  I can't get a menu or any of the TV functions to show up on the screen. It isn't the cable box either, as there is no picture for DVD's either.  If I try and use the TV/Video option on the remote I have seen a very thin green line glitch across the top of the screen for a couple of seconds, and then back to all black.  The green line does not always show when I am trying to switch inputs. We have not spilt anything on the TV, had a change in weather, moved it, or given it any cause to just stop working.  Any help would be much appreciated.  Thank you. Corbett Robertson We have the same problem with our Vizio. The sound works fine but the screen is completely black. DVDs don't show up on the screen either. The picture actually QUIT while we were watching it - it just went black, while the audio continued. We tried powering off and everything, but the picture has never come back. Now we don't know if we should try to repair or just buy a new one!

It sounds like you have tried changing imputs " usually the issue". The next step is to see if it is still under warranty and get an estimate of how much it will cost to fix. Invest in a good surge protector.

Our Sony Bravia tv picture keeps going light dark light dark. What is causing this problem? It is very annoying when it goes dark because you can't see the picture. Please help.


I have Sony KDL-32XBR9 and I have noticed a similar problem. When the picture is showing mostly black, for example during the ending credits of a movie, the TV will further darken the display. Once the picture lightens back up, the TV will adjust the brightness of the display back to normal. I just called Sony customer support and they indicated it was a firmware problem and they will be sending a USB device in the mail to update the firmware. Hope this helps.

Black screen


Had the same problem. Purchased Haier 42" model 42EP24S from Sears and it broke in 1 1/2 years. Couldn't find anyone to fix it so I ordered part Service Kit: TV-3940-01 from www.searspartsdirect.com the cost was $150.00. If your warranty is up and you're okay with doing your own work. :-)

Replaced 3 boards (instruction included) and my tv is back in action.

Always go through the basics before you post questions.  All I did was reset the TV (unplug for a few minutes) and it is back to normal.  Lesson learned, TV fixed, thanks.
