Sorry to make a new thread on this but I want to ask it as a more general question in relation to plasmas themselves.


I recently purchased a 32" Vizio VP322 and there appears to be (I only noticed it on the third day after I connected a brand new Wii component cable and HDMI DVD player) small faded purple discoloration in the upper left-hand corner directly in front of where the inputs for coaxial and component are. It is on every each input so I know it is the screen. It is only noticeable on white/lighter color backgrounds but if you look carefully enough it isn't too hard to see.


So, do plasmas suffer from magnetic interference and is that possibly what this is? I don't think I did not notice this over the past two days when I have been scanning intently for flaws. I just want to know if people typically see this and if I can attempt a fix or if I have to try exchanging it if it is just a random flaw. It made me curious that this was right in front of the inputs - can wires cause this sort of interference??


I am currently at work till 5 and left it unplugged, I did not know what to do with it.

Plasmas (and LCD TVs) are not affected by magnetic inference like the old tube TVs were. You should not be seeing any discoloration like this and since it's visible on all inputs then it's probably a problem with a video board or the plasma panel itself. Since Vizio TVs cannot be repaired, you should just return it for a new one.

That's what you get for buying a Vizio
. Kidding aside, if I were you, I would return it and get a new one.

Yeah, thanks. I'm going to go switch it out tonight and see what I get I'm actually happy I got it at Wal*Mart now because driving 20 minutes is better than shipping for 20 days.
