Vizio p4--repair manaul needed

The following repair manual was given by a poster but no means of acquiring other texts. Example:

Home of National service,I can not find how to gain access to the P4 repair manual. My fear is that there is none. Can someone help--I'm willing to pay by Paypal--if needed.
My set shows a blinking red lite and after on and off a blinking green and off/on a steady green but no sound or Picture.
If it is z and Y boards, can someone show a cross references to othe units that may have the same components. Also, what part of the Z-Y boards goes bad and someone had said it was the ICs--could they be replaced--thanks

$175 sounds like it is labor only as these boards go for anywhere between $300 and $375 each based on where you get them. The Z and Y boards are called sustainer boards and they are on the left and right hand side of the television when you take the back off. Unless you really know what you are looking at when you look at circuit boards, there is no way to tell what's actually bad on them. Under warranty we just replace them and send the faulty one's back to Vizio. If this tv is still under warranty, call vizio and they will send someone like me out to you house and fix it there.

42in Vizio black screen, no sound

I had the same issue happen to my vizio lcd just this weekend. Everyone is telling me is a bulb or backlight or something. It would explain the loud pop and no picture, but I'm not getting sound either so I'm not sure what exactly happened. Only after about 2 years too. I'm trying to find parts to just fix it myself.

New vizio 42" is posterizing

I think it cause by vs voltage is high. You can try to decrease the Vs voltage a little bit. You can adjust the voltage while the TV is on. The Vs voltage adjustment is locate in the power supply.
