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

On and off and on again

My television was turning on and after a while it would turn off for a few seconds, the power light would trun yellow and then turn back on to green. Now it won't turn on at all, but the power light is still on yellow. I tried unplugging it overnight, thinking it might need to reset. I would appreciate any insight. hi i own a Vizio P50HDM when i turn on my tv the orange light turns green and the tv will click like it wants to turn on but it doesnt. no picutre no sound but the light either blinks from orange to green or itll stay in one color... what can this be help me please.

    My Vizio P50HDTV also goes off and on again on its own. I plan to contact Vizio. Any known solutions? Thanks.

Hi i had the the same promblem where the screen and sound went out and the light still lit. have someone or do it yourself, check the ceramic fuses on the y sys board which is the large board on the right looking at it from the back of the tv. i replaced mine becasue that board was not working. if not it could be the power supply. i got the board on ebay and replaced it myself saved about 400 dollars.

Toshiba 46 inch regza yellow light blinks and picture wont come on but I have full audio


Most likely the power supply board needs to be replaced. It could also be the T-con board or less likely the display itself.

If you don't know what you're doing, DON'T OPEN THE TV UP TO FIX IT, THERE ARE HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES ON THE POWER SUPPLY BOARD, EVEN WEEKS AFTER THE TV IS UNPLUGGED!

If you don't know how to do it yourself, find some local Electronic repair shops, get quotes, try to find reviews on the shops.

Tv truns on then turns off


if model indicated do the self check it has:

On front of set when green light for power goes out press and hold both the menu and input (source) buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

If set has been unplugged you must plug it back and try to get set to turn on--unplugging clears the errors.

Let me know what error you find and I will tell you what it means.

The power light is constantly blinking in yellow. before this happened the yellow light was on without blinking I turned it off, once I turned it back on the light turned green but the screen...


try unplugging your t.v for 10-20 seconds. plug it back in. if your power light continues to flash your t.v is the issue. you should be able to google your issue or check your owners manual about the problem. unplugging the t.v is the last ditch effort. Good Luck!

Turn on ps3, light truns green for a second then turn red with a beeping noise?


I had this problem not a few months ago. It is the beginning of the yellow light of death syndrome. Sony can repair it if it is in warranty, or there are independent chains that also do repairs. The price to repair mine (replacing the optical drive) was $130.

My playstation has the light trun green yellow flashing red light


With your PS3 turned off, press and hold the Power button on the front of the PS3 for about 10 seconds (the system will beep as normal as it starts up but after 7-10 seconds it will beep again). The video settings should now be reverted. Doing this will also reset any theme settings. try this? seems to fix alot of issues.

I dont't have a solution but I now have the same problem. Very frustrating. Vizio suggested the "cold boot" by unplugging but this seems to have made it worse. Like the product but not this!
