Question about Vizio GV42L 42 in. LCD Television
Hello imvega7, as i know, 42 inch is a plasma display TV.
Refer to your image, and my experience that symptomp because of connection between buffer PCB and panel. Some cases, dirty conection may cause this symptomp.
Un plug power cord, open rear cover, fine pcb on upper or lower panel.
unplug flat cables from pcb buffer, clean soket using a brush. And also clean flat cables using celaner or alcohol.
Wait untill that conection dry. reassembly and try it.
i hope that help you.

Testimonial: "Very detailed."
9 out of 10 times this would be a bad LCD , which can't be repaired at a reasonable cost.
Maybe 99 out of 100 is more accurate.
The T-CON having gone bad is your only choice, but the T-CON for this Vizio model does not usually fail in that way.
Which doesn't say it can't do it, it only makes it even less likely.
Selling it on Craigslist to the highest bidder may be the best walk-out option for you.
Amazingly many people buy TVs in hope they can fix them cheap.
Of course they buy them cheap too...but better that than having to spend time and money on trying to fix something that likely can't be fixed.
Hope this helps!

This is LCD TV, not Plasma TV. Try reseating the ribbon cables between the LCD panel and the T-CON board to see if it helps. Main board driving the T-CON board can be bad also, you will need Oscilloscope to look at the signals to verify for sure.
