Hi,
i think ur tvs smps have some problem. just check that fuse replaced by u, is it ok or not. may be any of the mosfet driving the smps faulty. when u replace the fuse some other component( fusible resistor) in that rail may become faulty. remember one thing. the fuse blows only when there is a fault in the board. always check before inserting fuse.
ok

I have a vp42 I have sound but no picture nothing black like it didnt turn on. I can hear it but cant controll the sonud.


Hi,
I would check to confirm that all cables in the back of the TV and other items attached to the TV via cable are all fully secured into the sockets, push them to make sure they are fully connected.
Next I would suggest looking for a source button on the side of the TV and going through all the different inputs to make sure you are on the right one. Also confirm that all the devices are turned on. If this fails to work check to confirm on any channel that a picture will appear, even if it is white noise or other information text displayed by the TV it's self to make sure the screen panel is not broken.
Thanks,
Ash.

The TV is a Plasma, it does not have a "BackLight" as it were, that is for LCD's only.

Vizio are fobbing you off. It will need either a Y-Sustain & Buffers or a Z-Sustain.

P42HDTV Visio Plasma TV. The picture is bad grainy/snowy.


Doing some warranty work for Visio, I ran into this same problem. I replaced the video and power boards, among other things. Turned out to be a bad panel, which isnt viable to replace. Best to get Visio to agree they made a lemon (as all their products are in my humble opinion) and have them send you a new tv, or even better, buy a tv that is NOT a visio. You can get great deals on LG and Samsung these days, both decent quality tvs.

Power comes on but no picture


you could have 1 of 3 problems and they are, either you are missing 24v from the powersupply, a bad back light inverter or the LCD driver board has a blown pico fuse all of wich will cause no pix.

Lg plasma 42PC3D no picture with sound


I know you already replaced the board, this is for future searchers. If you heard a popping sound, then the picture went out, there is a 32 pin Sanyo module that goes bad on the board. That's probably what caused the fuse to blow. Replace the module, then replace the fuse. The module is less than half the cost of a used board. Since this was a popular model TV, there are lots of replacement boards on the used market.
