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

2 Answers

Vizio VW42LFHDTV10A I have a Vizio VW42LFHDTV10A Still having same issues. Unit turns off, remote not working unless power cycle is done, audio comes in and out.  Arghh. Not under warranty anymore but argued and got them to send me parts and I will TRY to install myself. I have worked in IT for 12 years so im fairly competent, just havent worked on tv's before.  Could someone send me a link to a service manual or offer help with replacing the Main Board, Power Board and IR Board on this unit. THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE. I dont have the money right now to purchase a new TV.

These problems will come through by IC. If u known well in electronic service means u do this or else better go to the service engineer....If u change the IC means all the problem will clear....u no need to change the main board or any thing....

You will need to get a diagnosis done on the set. It could be a power supply issue or a main board issue. Your problem is between one of those two boards.

VIZIO MODEL VW42LFHDTV10A WILL NOT TURN ON. FUSES &VOLTAGES OK


Did you check for the "ON" or "PS ON" signal on the power supply board? It should be around 3.3vdc.This signal comes from the main board, it commands the other sections of the power supply to come on and turn on the TV set. This signal should be present when you press the power button from either the TV or remote. If you are not getting this signal from the main board, you're most likely dealing with a main board failure. If you are dealing with a main board failure, take heed, some Vizio main boards can be expensive.

Can you fix this cracked screen problem on Vizio VW42LFHDTV10A? and no sound?


We used to say have a short service on the patio and buy a new set---damaged panel display unit is more than set cost (if it is even available)
Let it go---when damaged it can instantly damage other boards/parts in the set.

Run a car with no oil and see what happens........

Vizio model VW42LFHDTV10A 42'' LCD has no picture but has power and sound all buttons and remote work. Faded picture appears for about a second and goes blank. Everything else seems normal. I'm wondering...


This problems are those 2 long LCD inverter boards to it left and to it right.These 2 long LCD inverter boards help the LCD picture screen panel to have a backlight to produced a picture.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy those refurbishes 2 long LCD inverter boards for the replacement.
