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

1 Answer

Our 42" Vizio Plasma TV lost it's picture yesterday. The night before it would have moments of greenish-blue spots show up for a second or two and then disappear. Yesterday there was a pop sound and the TV went blank. Sound works. The TV is approximately 5 years old. It is on a cabinet with plenty of air flow around the entire unit.

Hi,
Y-Sustain or Z-Sustain boards failure is common problem in plasma tv and when any chip like regulator or any high current drain chip got failed on above said boards, it gives pop sound.
Visual check is necessary to examine what board got damaged. Local tv repair shop will help you in visual check.
Shop Jimmy is one of good source for Vizio plasma replacement boards, click Shop Jimmy and select model number of your tv that would be written at back of tv and find out required board and get it replace to get tv back in business.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

For the 42" plasma, you need to change your sustainer boards or your main board to fix the problem. If your TV is still under warranty, call 877-MY-VIZIO and they will have a technician go to your home and fix the problem for free.

For the L42 HDTV, you need to change the inverter boards or the main board. If your TV is still under warranty, call 877-MY-VIZIO and they will have a technician go to your home and fix the problem for free.

No video/picture


Solution is to get it fixed (hopefully under warranty).

I have the same issue after owning the Vizio 42" LCD for just 5 months. They are coming to replace the part this week. I will also be purchasing the extended warranty as well, to avoid this problem in the future.
