My Visio 42" LCD TV has this problem. The bottom right portion of the picture is blacked out - the blacked out
section has the shape of a rectangle - the area blacked out represents about 15-18% of the total picture area.
Hello! I have a 32" Vizio LCD...within 30 minutes of the tv being turned on, black lines start running through the bottom half of the screen and eventually blacking out the bottom half of the tv screen. It also doesn't have anything to do with the ratio as I have tried that. HELP!

Many Visio tv's have the same problem, and also reversed - picture and no sound. The quick fix is to disconnect the power cord at TV - then hold in the power button (usually found on left side 1/4 up from bottom of screen , located on the side/back of the set. a square button all alone) - hold power button in for 30 1,000 mississippi's, yes, that is what a Visio tech told me and it works. I was lucky enough to have the problem start before the 30 return policy ended at Walmart - decided I did not want a product that obviously has a chip failure coming soon! I exchanged for a Samsung and have not looked back!
Hello there, the probability of 2 Vizio LCD's having the same problem is quite abnormal. The problem is definitely from the cable box as LCD TV's are usually factory tested to ensure that such problems dont exist in the unit. Check the cable box and also check the cables with which the cable decoder is connected to the TV. This is where your problem is from. Hope this support has been helpful? Thank you for visiting FixYa.
Sounds like the power supply section in your tv has a bad component. Probably a bad capacitor or a surface mounted diode. One thing is for sure: something has shorted and is causing your power supply section to not fire up. Suprising to me because Visio has a good track record.
