Model: P42HDTV10A
Description: 42 inch Vizio plasma 720p HDTV
Condition: heavily distorted picture

I received a TV with a broken power supply. I replaced two capacitors in the power supply and it is now working and outputting all the correct voltages. The panel however looks messed up as shown in the picture below. I wanted to know does the picture I posted indicate a bad panel or could it possibly be something else.

great video.

my vote is yes. I somewhat second-guess my vote because of how it grows larger the longer it is on. That is odd.

I was about to take out the parts on the TV to sell them on eBay and I noticed the z-sustain board had a blown fuse. There are two fuses on the z-sustain board right next to each other, one was blown the other was just fine. I replaced the fuse and turned the TV on. It made the normal relay clicks and then an additionaly relay click immediatly after like it was turning off. The power supply isn't outputting any voltage to the y-sus or z-sus but the power light stays yellow until I turn it off. My question is do I need a new z-sustain board?
