Question about V, Inc. Vizio P50HD Plasma Television

1 Answer

Another dead Vizio... P50HDM

My Vizio P50HDM went out last night, and now I have no video or sound.I wasn't in the room at the time, so I'm not sure if it made the "Pop."

If I simply try to turn it on, the LED flashes from green to amber a few times, then just stays amber.

If I unplug the tv and then plug it back in, when I try to turn it on,there is a "click" followed by a buzzing noise that comes from the backof the tv for a few seconds before becoming quiet. A couple of secondslater the "click" and buzzing noise comes back and then stops for good.However, the LED stays green, but I still have no video or sound.

Then if I turn off the tv again, I can't get the green LED to stay litby pressing the Power button unless I unplug the unit and then plug itback in.

Do you think replacing the Y and Z sustainer boards could cure myproblem, or does it sound more like the Mainboard or Main Logic ControlBoard?


FYI... I'd been noticing a scattering of red pixels (especially on dark scenes) off and on for a few months now.

Thanks for any help.

Picture went out on Vizio P50HDM


Check you voltages before just swapping out boards. Although a YSUS is common for no picture, so is your upper and lower Y Buffer boards or the panel itself. Check youe -VSC voltage. Does it look like it is being loaded down? If so then your YSUS is not the problem. You can run the set with just the upper or lower Y Buffer boards untill the load is gone. That will let you know wich board to replace.

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.

replace the sustainer boards should correct this problem. New sustainer boards may cause red and green pixilation. If this happen, replace control board and TV is as good as new.
