Scope the power supply feeding the microprocessor, sounds like it has ripple caused by a leaky electrolytic capacitor.

Just install a new 42"


Can you please describe the problem with a little bit more detail? Are you saying that the pictures are coming up with a ghost effect? When the pictures are freezing what exactly do you mean, as in when changing inputs you can still see the picture there but gradually goes away?

Picture freezes


Contact your LG dealer for a service engineer, the software version currently in the TV may need updating, there is an update available for picture freeze problems.

The av inputs keeps freezing or trying to "retrieve data". How can I fix this?


I had 2 TVs replaced because of this problem with my Vizio 42". If you call them, they will ask you to do a "power down", to do so, you have to unplug the the TV and hold the power bottom for 1 min. then plug it back and try. But that didn't help in my case, so they sent me a reburb tv, an a month later had the same issue, every time I was using an imput other that the TV, the tv end up freezing and won't show any picture on any of the imputs at all including the cable with or without a cablebox.

My polaroid has sound and picture problems


This is a well-known problem with many Polaroid FP displays. Eventually, the picture will simply go black, rendering the TV useless. The solution is a new control board, ~$400.

Sharp Aquos 46 In TV Problems:


Sharp list no issues or service tips for this model but I am sure most freeze ups are and issue of weak cable signals or defective cable receivers. If this has truly been elimnated the main digital pcb in the TV could be issue or more likely the TV may need the latest software upgrade. This is most likely only able to be facilitated by a Sharp auth. service center.
