Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
SOURCE: No picture but has sound
With all the listed sets,itis most likely the y-drive(sus) board.The only problem is that this board usually fails when the horz.buffer ic's fail,which is usually part of the plasma display.This was a semi-common problem with this set.The best bet is to find a new set,since the parts alone will exceed the cost of a new one.Pioneer or nec seem to be the most reliable that i have seen.

Just had the same problem and determined it was the primary power supply board. The TV has a primary and secondary power supply. The secondary controls the on/off and audio. The primary controls the picture. If this is shot, you will not get a picture but will hear audio. I had to call Vizio and have them send me a new power supply board ($150 + SH). Not too hard to install yourself. Hpe this helps!

check the backlight inverter and the Y-sus board the one to your left. if those are fine check the bottom right buffer board
