Question about Vizio P50HDTV20A 50 in. Plasma HDTV
The problems most likely could be as a result of a bad lamp. Have that lamp replaced and the television will be in good condition again.
Another fault could be that there might be a component that is faulty on the main panel of the television like a cold joint which is that lead from a part might have melted on another part causing a bridge. This can be corrected by having a repairman use a soldering iron to melt off the bridged lead.
Take care and good luck.

Turn on your VIZIO HDTV. Press the orange button with the "VIZIO" logo, which looks like a letter "V" with a triangular wedge in the center. If there is no VIZIO logo button, press the "Menu" button. Press the "Right Arrow" button twice to highlight the "Setup" icon, which looks like a wrench.
Press the "Down Arrow" button three times to highlight the "Wide" menu item. Press the "Left Arrow" or "Right Arrow" buttons repeatedly until the correct aspect ratio is selected. "Normal" is for a standard definition 480i signal, which has a 3:4 aspect ratio. "Wide" is for high definition signals, and has a 16:9 aspect ratio. "Panoramic" stretches the outside of the image while keeping the center at the normal aspect ratio. "Zoom" enlarges the image on the screen. Press the "Last" button twice to close the VIZIO on-screen menu.
Watch the image on the screen of your VIZIO HDTV to ensure that the picture is at the right aspect ratio. If it still looks distorted, it's most likely because you chose the wrong aspect ratio setting, because your source device is set incorrectly or because you used the wrong connection method.
