Get a better HDMI cable, had similar problems with PC connection using a good quality HDMI (older), updated to the latest version (cheaper manufacturer) and all the problems disappeared. Going to component will work, but why sacrafice quality.

If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.
the only thing that i can think of is that the cables and connections are bad but if that is not the case it may be the internal components of the tv. my guess is that the tv was dropped or jumbled around while transported and what happened was internal components were broken or just mixed up so go to the retailer and get a refund or a new tv. hope this helps
are you using an HDMI cable? verizon has a thing with hdmi connections to samsung for sure, cause i have the prob my self, and i'm sure the tech said sony too. if you have a usb port on it, you can update the firmware and that may help
I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.
On the TV press menu
picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box:
on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.
