Just the one TV freezes

All of our TV's are hooked up to the same antennae system. None of the others freeze. Why does just one have problem with the reception?

Hello, it possible if your sharing the signal to sometimes loose reception you should have a dedicated hdtv antena or hdtv cable service for your main tv.
you can check by removing all the other sets and see,
if it happens again then you need a dedicated hd antenna or signal. this should be better for you and your hdtv reception.

Tv freezes


You need to boost your signal somehow, get a better antenna. nothing is wrong with the TV, this is a typical Dropout when signal is low.

Screen freezes, and buttons don't work!


It sounds that the main digital board to your TV has the fault. To check and locate the fault to this board is a very skilled work. Contact any service technician.

TV picture freezing


digital signals do not fade out and get snowy like signals used to do ... if the signal gets too weak then it just freezes .. you might say its either perfect or frozen .. sometimes it gets blocky .. where some sections of the screen freeze while other sections continue .. what that means if you are using an antenna is .. you need a better antenna or better aim for the one you have .. outside is much better than inside but just rabbit ears are ok for strong signal areas .. you can aim the antenna based on a signal strength meter usually provided in HD receivers in the setup menu .. you can also get an antenna map from "www.antennaweb.org" .. that will show you what direction to point the thing for each channel and how strong each channel should be ... if you are using Cable instead of an antenna then you should have good signal strength but there is a problem called "Crest Factor" .. that becomes an issue when they put too many signals on a given cable .. the cable handles it ok as long as there is no damage (bad ends, water inside, animal chews, corrosion) but the cable box or receiver may be overloaded as thousands of signals drift in and out of phase ... thats a cable company problem that might be getting worse as more channels are added .. the results are that periodically the picture will freeze or pixelate .. you probably have to accept a little of that but more than a little gets really irritating ....off the air reception with an inside antenna (like rabbit ears) you will find that moving around the room can effect the signal for channels in the UHF range (most are) .. aiming the antenna and getting it as high as possible will minimize that problem.. make sure whatever antenna you use is designed for UHF as well as VHF .. the little circle often found between the two "rabbit ears" is actually the UHF part of the antenna .. it can be rotated for UHF channels while the big ears are aimed and adjusted for VHF .. antennaweb.org will tell you which is UHF and VHF ..

TV freezes up when turned to channel 33-1


I had the same problem. I also use rabbit ear antenna , no cable or satellite. I was watching ch. 33.1 and the tv turned off by itself. The remote wouldn't work. The power on/off buttons on the side of the tv wouldn't work. I had to un-plug the power cord to turn the tv off. The tv forze on ch. 33.1 when I turned it back on.

I called Vizio, they told me they received hundreds of complaints from people in Texas complain g about these problems.

I was told to un-plug the antenna cable and re-plug it. I did this plus I re-scanned all channels. The problem has been solved, the channel (33.1) no longer freezes and the tv doesn't turn off by itself.

Hope this helps.

Frame periodically freezes on Vizio 37'' TV


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...
