Question about Vizio L37 Television
This TV is hooked up to an antenna with a booster. In the last week, it has frozen two times. The first time it was 1 1/2 hrs. later that I returned into the room and saw it frozen on the news station at 8:29 AM
HELLO to the guy saying hello ... I am on cable and have the same freezing problem ... so take the attitude and shove it!!!!!

I am experiencing the exact problem with my vizio. It is 2 yrs old old this has occurred about 3 times in the last month! Sometimes the picture is black othertimes it is frozen on screen. I am a cable customer and have had the unit adapted for HD .Yhe only cure is to unplug it and wait and restart. SDUCH an ANNOYANCE, Vizio will do nothing and says it has not one other documented comlaint of this nature... REALLY??? what can we do now??

Hello, your picture freezes becuase your using unstable reception like over air analog signal antenna. even with a booster you still loose signal if theres storms or weather events. try using a more stable signal like cable or satelite service even digital adapter for digital tv this may help with the freezing.

Your statement is confusing. Why? because you stated " This tv is hooked up to an Antenna with a Booster", then you said it's connected to Cable Tv. I will answer this both ways for you.
If your on an Outside Antenna or Rabbit Ears, even with a booster, if the signal is not good prior to getting to the antenna then a booster only amplifies what it see's and that may be as we call it, "garbage". In a HDTV the freezing can happen when that situation is at hand, however if you are on Cable and we know the signal is clean ( we hope? ) then the problem is with the software in the set and should be looked at by a service center, or if it's right out of the box then I would exchange it.
In digital technology there's no maybe, it's yes or no! If the signal is not what's required, then you get what your experiencing now, IF, there's nothing wrong with the set, and there may be. I just repaired another brand doing the same thing and it was the Main Control Module. So, I hope I helped you in isolating the problem. Please keep me posted...
