Question about Vizio P50HDTV10A 50 in. Plasma HDTV

2 Answers

I have evenly spaced, rows of two vertical green and red lines from top to bottom of my vizio plasma P50HDTV10A

Originally I had red and green lines around the edges of faces and things that had a metallic look to it. This morning, I turned on the set and had rows of two across the screen of red/green lines from the top to the bottom of the screen. After turning the set off and back on later, the lines disappeared but I expect I have not seen the last of this problem. Any ideas?

Somehow when switching between the tv and the dvd my wife encountered the pink and green, thin, parallel, vertical lines on the screen. The picture was visible with the lines. I turned the tv off and on but the problem persisted. Unplugged tv for about two minutes and after plugging it back in and turning it on the vertical lines very gone and the picture was back to normal.

It will probably eventually come to the following:

Alternatively, it is possible the address selectors of the plasma display controller are about to go out.

When the defect becomes permanent post or send a picture and we'll help you narrow it down.

The first issue is totally resolvable, the second is totally not.

Good luckl

The power supply in these sets have had bad electrolytic capacitors which short and actually blow their top because of increased pressure. Only part of the switching power supply is now running so you may see a power light but nothing else. I am not sure what Vizio would charge to replace the cap or supply. If this is the case, we would charge for 1 hour labor ($120.00) and for the capacitor ($3-4.00)unless the manufacturer recommends replacement of the power supply. Hope this helps you.

Don't replace anything, Vizio has issued a lifetime warranty for this set because of this problem. No joke, call the customer service line and tell them you got the pop of death. They'll send someone out to 'repair' the set free of charge. If they can't fix it they'll give you a new one. Even if your mfg purchase warranty has expired. Call them and post the results. I've been fixing TV's longer than I care to admit and this is the first time I've actually seen a company stand behind their products like this. I bought a broken tv with the intent of fixing it and after replacing almost every board I could only manage to get the vertical racing stripe line, except mine was purple. I put it all back together and called to find out if there was a recall on this set and within 5 minutes the (Actual English speaking) gentleman told me to sit tight and he'd have a repairman come and do his thing. He did, and long story short, he couldn't fix it. Last week they delivered a new TV to replace this one. I was shocked. I think Vizio will have all my future business.
Good luck.

Multiple vertical white lines


hi,
As you mentioned its sounds like the X buffer (Right and left) of your tv is faulty. There are two boards in your tv for driving the X plane of the plasma panel. Normally you can find these board on the top or bottom portion of the TV. . Its part numbers are Right buffer board is 6870QSC107A 6871QRH073A and Left buffer board i EAX35683901 EBR35855501. Before purchasing the boards identify which board is faulty. That you can find easily. Check which portion of the screen have vertical line in right or left side of the panel. The board for that side is faulty.
You can find these boards on the following link.

I have blueish green lines


like 3D? This is a convergence chip problem. You can try tuning it from the settings in memu But it will eventually show up again> sometimes after you turn it on the next day. The only true way to fix it is to have the chip replaced. It is not a DIY as these chips are soldered to the board.

I have red lines up/down on my Vizio, how can I correct this?


Your sympton need to be more specific, but if what you see is 1 or more tiny lines running from top to bottom of screen (verticaly) and those lines change colors (red/green) depending on the background color on the screen, then your control board need to be replaced, you will need your TV model and product code, both located in the back of the TV next to serial number
