No bulbs in a plasma..

sounds like a video problem or centering problem ...see if can change the resolution or put it on auto and reset all to default through the menu.

How do I stop the static noise from my vizio tv?

At high altitudes all plasma tvs will emit a high pitch noise.
There's nothing you can do about it besides move or get a new tv. Plasmas just do this.

Red line down right side of screen

I would have a tech come out and look at it. Sometimes the ribbon connectors from the upper or lower buffer boards have poor or corroded contacts. Should'nt be a major deal since it comes and goes.

Vizio P4 Plasma green blotches

The same thing happened to me Twice!. First time it was under warranty. Now it it out and Vizio has not interest in helping me. The first time the repair man changed the motherboard, which worked for about a year. Looks like I will be buying a new TV soon, but certainly NOT a Vizio, they are junk
Anyone out there know how much a motherboard costs?
