I would return it and get a brand name. It either has a bad lcd panel or digital board. If it breaks with no warranty you will be SOL.

Our Vizio started doing the same thing after only three weeks, except it was also showing green pixel when we watched DVDs. After checking this site and others and trying all the "tweaking" advised, I finally called Vizio's customer support. They were extremely polite and tried to help over the phone, but had to send someone to the house to make the repair (anything 40 inches or larger earns a house call). The tech arrived on time and was extremely professional and pleasant -- he had to replace the daughter board and LVDS cables. So far, so good.

This is the fix for the Main board repair :
Locate IC 32 small 8 pin surface mount near top of Main Board and remove. Short pin 2 to pin 5. (pin 5 through 8 are together and pin 2 and 4 are together)
You will need a good TV Tech to do this for you.

I had the same problem....turned out it was the "lvds" cable that runs from the mainboard to the lcd controller board. Simply remove the tape that holds it to the back of the backlight housing and also remove the foil shielding tape from the connector on the lcd controller board.

You need to replace the LCD controller board, there are two versions (V320B1-C, 35D003848) you need to open up the tv and remove the shield cover to get to the LCD controller board, this is a common problem with this model. Look here parts (make sure to get the part number of the LCD panel sticker to match wit the LCD controller): http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?q=LTV-32W3HD&stock=all
You cam see the one I fixed here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/LTV-32W3HD/
Notes: be real careful when you remove the back cover, the side switch assembly is attached to the back panel, so do not pull it off too far, or you will damage the switch assembly!
