Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

3 Answers

Unable to watch TV programs without the TV freezing and buzzing.

I use my TV as a monitor for my home computer with no problems; I also use it for console gaming with no problems.

If I switch it to "TV" and try to watch a program, it freezes and emits a high pitched buzzing sound after a few moments.

What is wrong, what do I need to do.

Unless the high pitched buzzing noise is louder than you can stand, then it is normal, it is the backlighting making that noise, normally a program drowns out that noise entirely.
Check to make sure all TV cables are correctly plugged in by unplugging all other connection cables, such as the computer and console cables.

Defiantly it is problem related to Tuner section. Please replace tuner board in this TV.

Why do i need to interrupt a tv in the home for my tv to continue to work

Many if not all providers charge you for a set maximum number of active connections to their service. If for instance you are recording something and also are watching 4 TV's in your home and are paying for 4 TV's, it will tell you to turn something off because you are trying to use 5 connections.

Why does the screen shut down after 1 sec while sound continues

It sounds like bad luck to me. You cannot change any settings on a TV by connecting a computer to it. In theory you can damage any monitor by setting the screen resolution of the computer higher than the monitors maximum res. The Sharp 26" has a resolution of 1366 x 768 (1080i) so (again in theory and I have never seen it happen) if you set the output to 1920 x 1024 (HD - 1080p) it can kill the screen. Perhaps this is what has happened. You will need to take it to a Sharp service centre.

I have a JVC LT 32 EX 18 TV. When connecting my laptop over HDMI, playing on a playstation or WII the sound and picture work perfectly. When I want to watch normal TV over cable though the problems start...

If the rear inputs work consider connection for the channels with a box using one of the rear inputs--sounds like a tuner related issue and going to the rear inputs bypasses that.

After about 30 - 60 minutes the picture starts to freeze. The frozen picture resembles that of a chess board type montage. It starts with a stop start freeze which progresses until it is totally frozen....

The high rate of refresh on today's displays results in alot of heat.
The fact that your system works for an hour or so before going goofy indicates that it is overheating.
A fan directed to the back of the tv for heat disipation will usually do the trick.
Also take off any of the decorations around the TV that might hinder airflow.
That said, your tv should be able to withstand general application use without going "goofy".
If you are still in your warranty period, I would have it looked at.
Good luck

Plazma TV buzzing noise

I have the same problem I can hear buzzing over the volume of the tv into the 30 range. I've had a tech out 3 times and he's coming out for a fourth. He's changed to power supplies and is bringing the 3rd next visit. From what I've read it has either to do with power supplies or grounding strips.

I have the same problem amongst others, including rolling squares over the picture, but i cured the buzz by using scart connection 2 instead of connection 1; that is assuming you use a scart.
