    Sorry that I've been off for a while. I came to my friend who was a electrical Tech and he found the power supply for me, I think that can find it online if you still need it.

My vizio p4 edtv 46" made in 2003, went from working fine to a fuzzy blurry picture. You could change the channel and it would be fine for a second then back to fuzzy and blurry. I hooked my dvd player up...

This is not an easy fix. It's the main board (PCI) which is the board you plug your DVD player or cable line into. You could replace it yourself, but if your not a tech you might want to have a local repair shop do it. You could find the part online. This is an older TV so the part might cost you $300.

The part number should

Lcd display panels are just about the cost of a new set. I recommend buying a new set as compared to replacing the display panel.
