Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Half of the screen is black and doesn't display the picture

When I turned on the tv last night is was working fine.  However, after about 30 minutes of play half the screen (vertically) went black.  Now I can only see half the screen and it is not picture in picture. I purchased my Vizio 3 months ago.

Problem With KENMARK flat Screen TV - BLACKS OUT


you do not give the model number for a better diagnosis
the most common cause of this problem is the invertor or at worse the screen its self.
If it is a lvd 163 you can purchase a new invertor from [email protected] or call 01245392539

Visio LCD TV - Partial Picture blacked.


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!

Black screen and no sound


I realized that there is a 90 day warrantee on parts and a 30 day limited warrantee on labor for the  repairs that were done. As I stated, the original problem was the picture shrinking after a few minutes of the set being on. The repair firm took my control board with them. When they came back to install the repaired control board in my set there was a load spark during the installation, after which I had a black screen and no sound.  The repair firm took my set them and installed a "CAP Kit", a STRM6511, and a "D1881". The set worked perfectly until two days ago.
I called the repair firm an they are coming out this Thursday to check out my TV.   I am hoping the problem is related to the failure of one of the parts installed to fix a similar problem which occurred after the sparking incident.
