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

1 Answer

Vizio TV no picture, it will come on and has some display but no picture at all just a grey looking screen. Cannot even see displays when switching from HDMI, AV, etc. This happened after a lightening storm. Not sure if it is worth fixing or how much it will cost but the set is only about 18 months old.

Vizio panels are especially delicate when it comes to under or over voltage spikes, I would say that the LCD panel has failed and will probably cost approx. 80% the cost of a new television, I have experienced that Vizio TVs are a tuff one to get service on in my area, so you might call vizio direct and talk with one of their service reps.
GOOD LUCK !

Youtube on my vizio 470i tv is off centered


CHANGING THE SCREEN ASPECT RATIO: ( From Manual )
The TV can display images in four different modes: Wide, Zoom, Panoramic, and Normal. Each mode displays the picture differently. To change the screen aspect ratio:
1. Press the MENU button on the remote.
2. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight the Wide icon. Press OK.
3. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight your desired screen mode and press OK:
• Normal preserves the content's original aspect ratio. Since the 4:3 aspect ratio is not large enough to fill the TV's screen, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image.
• Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the display image may appear distorted. If the program is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or 2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and bottom of the display image.
• Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen.
• Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
images may appear wider than intended.
If you are watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display image. This option is only available when the TV is displaying a 480i/480p source.

Picture doesn't fit the screen


Its a function of the source and the tv picture settings. Go to the source (direct tv, cable, co-ax?) menu , settings and look for screen display sizes.
Your remote has a red dot "wide" button which will also have a screen size effect. You can cycle through the formats
For further info why not read/print out the manual?

How do replace a broken screen on a Vizio E420VL 42 in HDTVReady LCD TV


Screen is part of the display panel and means set is finished---cost of part if even available exceeds at the wholesale level the cost of a new set.

Plasma and LCD sets have fragile display panels and can easily be destroyed.

Picture went out on p50hdm Vizio Plazma tv after loud POP


It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.
