If you did not purchase an extended warranty, or if the credit card you used to buy it doesn't extend warranty, I'm afraid you're going to be out of luck. If HH Gregg isn't backing you up , i would not buy anything from them again.
This is made by LG / Zenith. They have had alot of problems with there TV's.It most likely has an inverter board going bad or could be power supply board. It will cost to much to repair. Get an extended warranty when you buy a new one. It will pay for itself.
The Service Plan from Walmart is an "extended plan" on top of the manufacture warranty. Your Tv is still under warranty from the manufacture.
Here's a link to get the info you need to get started on a warranty claim: http://www.vizio.com/support.aspx?id=1588
Since the TV is less then a year old and still under manufacturers warranty, I would suggest to take back to the vendor to get it fix because this LCD behavior is not going to get any better.
The failure on this TV is related to a power supply in most cases if the TV is turning OFF by itself or needs to be unplug to let cooldown and it works afterward.
There are other places you can take monitors to get worked on. I believe just about any TV repair facility will also be able to repair LCD TV's as well. You may want to first try something else first however. Go buy yourself a UPS Battery Backup that has AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation) built-in. I'd try doing that before paying someone to try and fix it. Besides, if that doesn't do the trick, then you can always take it back for a full refund.
