Hi,

I am Sorry to Hear Regarding the Problem. Unplugging the TV for Few Minutes, say 30 Minutes might solve the Problem.

If Problem persists, this is an Internal Failure or LCD Panel inside the TV has gone out of Order. These are Common Problems on these TV's.

If you have the Tools and want to Repair this ( If LCD Panel is at Fault, then it is wise to buy a new TV as the Cost of Panel is Quite High relevant to the Cost of the New TV - However, if the Board is at Fault, we could try to Catch the Fault and then Replace / Repair the Faulty Part ), you could Revert and i would be glad to guide you.

Let me know,so that we could Proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have a vizio p42hd TV. It has thin red vertical lines evenly spaced about 3/4" apart throughout the viewing area.


Hi,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

HOPE THIS WILL HELP TO FIX IT.....

Vizio P42HD TVThe LH side of the screen is black - no picture with vertical fixed lines


This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

VIZIO P42hd PS42a plasma Picture has two vertical lines (one red/orange, one blue) going down the right-hand side of the screen. Lines are clearly visible


The panel is almost certainly bad. The only fix for this is to replace the whole panel which would cost more than the whole TV.

Replace your sustainer boards and that should solve the problem. These are the two vertical boards on the sides of your TV.

Red line on screen


I had the same problem -red, vertical bars along the right side of my Samsung 42" Plasma- and this is what fixed it: Removed unterminated cable.  
I had hooked up an HD video camera to the set about two weeks ago.  While I disconnected the camera I left the other end of the connector cable plugged into the T.V..  As I've since learned from friends who work in television, this is what's called an "unterminated cable" -meaning one end is unconnected.  It can lead to problems with electrical interference and appears to have been the problem in this case;  When I disconnected this cable from the T.V. the red bars went away.
So, check your cables.  Make sure everything is properly connected and get rid of anything that might be picking up interference.  
Hope this makes sense.
