Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
Vizio model: P42HTDV10A This TV is about 6 months old. Recently, it will turn itself off after about 15 minutes of operation. This usually happens twice causing me to have to turn it back on manually. After the third time it appears to stay on as normal. Does this indicate that a component may be failing?
I have a vizio p42 and i have sound but no picture i have tryed to reset it but nothing works

If you only have it for 6 months,you should have it service cause it is under warranty!!
Don't waste anymore time and money when there is a manufacturer warranty.
Now,for the rest of the users,if there is SOUND but no picture.You should narrow down the problems by testing and connecting each one of the video inputs behind the TV and be SURE!
If you have tried all the video inputs behind the TV and still no pictures,there are 3 different possible cause which none of them is worth fixing it by yourself but to have a repair guy to do it,cause you would have to spend money to randomly buying these parts and see which one works!Not worth it.

I have the same TV. It started doing the same. Now it will shut off completely(no yellow light). Unplug overnight doesn't seem to help but sometimes it comes back on after a day(plugged in).
