Re: My Vizio 42in. is really fuzzy
If the picture is clear when using a DVD and remains "fuzzy" only with cable, then either the cable is bad or the up-conmvert from standard def to Hidef is creating the "fuzz". Depending upon the method used by the set to perform the "up-convert", the noise you are seeing may be normal.

Make sure you're in the TV mode. I have a friend who purchased a new plasma TV and 4 months later complained that it had no picture. I turns out that she somehow accidentally pressed some mode button on the corner of her remote control that took it into some auxillary mode for an external accessory device, thereby causing the screen to black out. If it's in the TV mode and you're not getting a picture, it may need to be serviced.
I have a television that did this. The picture went out but it continued to have sound. It was the projector bulb. I ordered from a dealer on ebay, very resonably priced. It came with instructions on how to install it and was a very easy fix.
Hi. It is entirely possible that the set is already running at 120Hz after all. The display 1080p 60Hz is merely the signal it is receiving and the earlier TV's that used to claim 100Hz/120Hz merely did so using line doubling only to give a clearer picture by filling in the blanks between scanlines. If your picture is already very clear, then I wouldn't worry about it
the tv models in store are usually have samples from blueray dvds. standard dvd players will look fuzzy because it only submits standard dvd picture quality. you can try an upvert dvd player. tho i cant promise picture quality. i have an xbox 360 that upverts the quality. if you get a bluray player i recommend hdmi wires. if you get upvert dvd player and it has an hd outlet red, blue, green wires it might work. i havent tried one myself. if you dont want to spend money on bluray dvds. i recommend an xbox console. it upverts dvds through hdmi or hd red, blue, green wires
