Question about Vizio E500i-B1 50-Inch 1080p Smart LED HDTV

1 Answer

How do I fix black vertical line on one side of the screen seemingly caused by impact damage?

There appears to be no impact damage when the TV is turned off. Here are some pictures showing the issue: http://imgur.com/a/X55f8 We contacted Visio but they said that this was not covered under their warranty as it looks like impact damage. Any help in fixing this would be greatly appreciated.

This kind of problem is not fixable, you need a new LCD panel.

SOURCE: vertical black line on screen

Your set has either a bad driver board or more likely a bad plasma panel.

SOURCE: Blue screen - no signal - turns off [visio tv L42hdtv10a]

With out turning on the T.V., Push the [Input] button on the remote control. The TV should turn on and activate the input menu, just continue to push [Input] until it is set on TV (or HDMI, etc.). this should solve your problem.

SOURCE: No power on my Visio 32 flat screen

There is no reset button on these new sets,your set has complete power problem since you have no lights no clicks,this might have happen because of lightning or power surge,either one creates a lot of damage,if you are familiar with tv service you can check the main fuse,he should be close to where the power cord comes in,if you find the fuse blown it needs to be replaced with an exact replacement for AMPS rating and VOLTS rating as well as size,if the fuse is blown black we might have more problems ahead in the circuit and it will blow up again as sonn as you plug the tv back in,if it blows again it will need a more involved repair,the problem could be in the primary side of the power supply,if you are not too familiar you should seek the help of a servicer a least for an estimate but if you suspect power surge or lighting damage dont invest any more on this set and get a new one.

SOURCE: VIZIO P42 plasma, half screen ok, other half showing blank

First you have to check if voltage and data are ok at the Y sustain board and the Y driver boards are not running hot. Even if you know how to replace these panels you must have a scope to adjust the v-set up and v- down. Not just a simple PNP. Trouble shooting a plasma is not a short time process to do it correctly. Please let a service center look at it for you.

Panasonic TH-42PX60U 42"Plasma TV has left side of screen with no picture with large black and white vertical lines. Purchased in 2006, can it be fixed and how much?


Try disconnecting all of your source devices from the TV and see if the line still appears. If the line disappears, the issue may be caused by your source device or your cables.

There is a line down the center of the screen


whether the line-shaped vertical or horizontal? if it appears a horizontal line on your side, it signifies the vertical rays do not exit the screen or your TV vertical part is not working. damage can be caused by IC Vertical, or in the vertical deflection coil yoke.dan if a line that appears is from top to bottom that indicates the horizontal section is not working, usually there is a problem of the deflection yoke is not connected or defective.

TV BLACK SCREEN WITH THE POWER ON.


It needs repair.
If the line is vertical, then something is damaged on its horizontal circuit section on the mainboard.
If the line is horizontal, the vertical circuit section is damaged.
have it repaired to a qualified service center or person!
avoid switching it to avoid further damage on other parts!

Plasma screen" injury"


None. Once the screen is damaged, it's permanant. The repair parts will most likely cost MORE than a new TV.
