VIZIO VS42LFHDTV10A Freeze Up

My 13 month old VS42L would ''freeze up'' randomly - picture gone or frozen, no sound. Backlight stayed on! No remote control or side buttons had any effect. Only way to regain control is to cycle power. Warrantied under Costco extended program. Unit repaired by contract repair company by swaping out video board, power supply and a cable. Same problem next day. Costco Concierge set up replacement unit from VIZIO.

Company certified replacement received yesterday (6/18/09). Replacement has same freeze up issue with seemingly increased frequency of occurence.

Only connection is RF cable to Comcast. No switches or tuner boxes. Unit sits in a large recessed area, but measured temp at highest point seems to be withing operating temp spec.

Any ideas?

Just unplug the comcast and see how the tv works, if the TV works fine, then you will now the trouble is not your TV.

It is not likely to have the same issue in the new TV, just unplug everything and use a dvd to see how it handle it.

hi Pat.
To freeze butter, wrap tightly in heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place inside a heavy-dutyfreezer bag. Frozen salted butter will keep at best quality for up to 12 months, unsalted butter will stay at best quality for about 6 months.

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

check your warranty period
if it for longer than 12 months , the warranty service is free regardless
they may want the deposit in case the problem is not warranty related and would be obliged to refund it if the fault was covered by the warranty

Picture is frozen


There is a button on the lower part of the remote that is a "freeze" button, it will freeze the picture, or capture a still shot. Try pressing this button to "unfreeze" your picture.
