I have the exact same problem. It may be the tuner board is bad. I did some research and it seems like this tv is junk. I saw a link that said call Vizio and they are aware of all it's problems and are willing to give a new tv free of charge. I called and they knew nothing about it, but did offer to fix it out of warranty for $285 all problems fixed out the door. Also, TV locks up on RGB input and can't switch inputs until I hooked a computer to the RGB input, then I was able to select a different input.
Please post if you found a solution to the DTV issue..

Hello, it sounds like the "y" sustain board is going bad. With the age of that set, I would not recommend spending the money to repair a set that's only a 720p set....tks...Terry

This happens occasionally to me. Many times it is just the HD cable has partially come out from either the tv end or the device it is attached/plugged in to. Just take each end of your HD cable out and firmly put them back in. If that doesn't do the trick, try switching the HD cable out entirely, and replace with a known good HD cable.

Sounds like a power supply problem. You could just change the board , that the easiest way. If you have some knowledge of components you could look at the capacitors on the Power Supply board and if you find some leaking (brown liquid), or bulging I would change those out.

sounds like you needed to replace your video fuse before anything normally if you have video but no sound its an audio fuse and vica versa if for some reason both were out I would say your in need of a new power supply I would suggest replacing the fuse and if it still does not work contacting a service tech to run a diagnostic to see what exact part or maintenance you need

Hey guess what?! After Costco shafted me good, told me to get lost, and slammed the concierge phone down, I called Vizio. THIS TV HAS A LIFETIME WARRANTY ON IT NOW!! They will fix/replace it at their expense! After a 5 minute call to their customer service they arranged the repair order. Vizio knows that this set is a lemon and they are actually owning up to it. The gentleman told me that this set now carries a Lifetime warranty on parts (to exclude a shattered screen of course) and labor! The repairman is going to come this way in the next week or so and I'll update you on what he says. So to all out there with problems on this set: CALL VIZIO AND GET READY FOR A BREATH OF FRESH AIR!

I have the P50HDTV20A. When I turn mine on I get sound but no picture but if I leave it on for about 15-20 mins and then turn off then back on it will have picture and sound. It seems as though as something has to warm up so the picture will come on.

In fact, the TV is dead. You should start troubleshooting straight from its main power regulator board itself. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here.Pull up older posts.

Any attempt to service or repair the product by anyone else could result in serious injury or death.
