    you would have to determine if the power supply is in the protect mode because of a defect on another board, or if the fault is the power supply only. This is usualy done by doing board swapping to find out which boards are defective.

    Some of the manufactures will sell the service manuals for their flat panel sets. Not all the schematics will always be complete. The information is mainly for how to replace the boards, and do the factory level calibrations if necessary. You will need the proper calibration and diagnostic tools to do the tests and adjustments as indicated by the service manual. rate this solution as fixya if it helps u any way this will encourage us to solve more and more problemslike yours. wish u luck.

    you unplug your TV for 15 minutes and thanplug it again that may work for you if this does not solve your problem then itwould be happening because of HDMI 1 port, tryusing Xbox (on HDMI 2) the problem will be solved definitely.
    if you only have 1 HDMI source, try switching to the other port.

    if this solution helps u rate this as fixya.feel free for further assistance.

You need to check your inputs. Make sure your tv is set to the same input that you are plugged into. Ex. If you are plugged into HDMI 1 then your TV SOURCE needs to be on HDMI 1.

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.

Vizio P4 Plasma green blotches


The same thing happened to me Twice!. First time it was under warranty. Now it it out and Vizio has not interest in helping me. The first time the repair man changed the motherboard, which worked for about a year. Looks like I will be buying a new TV soon, but certainly NOT a Vizio, they are junk
Anyone out there know how much a motherboard costs?
