New Vizio tv shuts off after June switchover

Bought my mother a new 22" Vizion flatscreen tv in May. Worked fine on an antenna until the June switchover--then the picture would freeze, made a loud screech and shut off. Got cable a few days ago and worked ok for a few days and then it started again though it flipped back on. Now it doesn't and can't get it back on. Talked with 2 reps over the past week who told me to hook a computer or a dvd player to it to check it out. And then what? If there is a problem, would it cause problems on those items too? Never got an explanation why I should do that. And today the rep refused to ref me to her supervisor. Also my mother is ill and been in the hosp a few time since 6-12 so haven't had a lot of time to spend on this. Frustrating huh? Any ideas about why I need to test it on the computer or a dvd player?

Well, your TV is no doubt under warranty. The only reason I can thing of why they want you to use a DVD player is to find out if the Digital Tuner inside the TV is the source of the problem.
They need to replace the Digital tuner board or the main mother board. Either way, they have to come out to your house to replace a part.
Just keep hammering them of the warranty coverage.

Why does the picture from my vcr vibrate on my new vizio smart TV

Because the Vizio TV isn't capable of dealing with the unstable sync from a VCR.

There's no real solution to this from a TV manufacturer's perspective. In the era of flatscreen TVs they're all designed for the nice stable synce from DVD players, TV broadcasts, TiVos and PVRs, games consoles etc. VCRs are yesterdays technology.

You can spend some money on an external Frame Store Sync Stabilizer, but it will cost quite a bit (more than a DVD Recorder, for example). So it might be better to have those tapes transferred to disc either professionally or by buying a used DVD recorder and doing it at home.

My mother has a Durabrand television, model number PTV7017, and a Freeview box which gives her other channels. Can you advise whether this is a suitable model for the Digital switch over or will she...

This TV will work fine for the switchover. As it is already using the freeview box, technically, you have already done the switchover.
Happy viewing.

My mother has bought a flat screen hd ready tv and has lost some channels due to the switchover

Has she lost some or all the HD channels. Most HD station have not gone to full power yet so you may not get all the channels. Try a 8 bay antenna and a booster.

I can't get a TV signal on new 22" VIZIO

If you are getting the "No Signal" message you need to connect an antenna or cable to the antenna input. You also need to go into the menu for your signal source and select ANTENNA or AIR if you are using an antenna OR CABLE if you are using cable.
NEXT YOU WILL HAVE TO SCAN IN YOUR STATIONS !! This is not like the old analog sets that plug in and run.
The instruction manual will give you precise instructions.

Vizio VX37L 37'' LCD HDTV Television not turning on

Unplug set and hold and press the power button for about a minute. Replug set and turn it on. If nada, then the issue is with the power supply of the set. Given its age and the high cost of repairs it might be more cost effective to get a new set.
