Your TV is probably getting interference from electrical appliances that produce electromagnetic interference. These includes fluorescent lights and electric motors such as water pumps. Cars, motorcycles and other things the emits electromagnetic signal can interfere with your TV.
Check for any new electrical installations within 5 meter radius or any newly connected appliance on the branch circuit where your TV is plugged. Disable if there's any then operate the TV. If your TV is not mounted on the wall, try moving it to another location to check if this is the cause of the problem.

Does it do this on every input / channel? Have you tried it with a DVD as well as regular TV? Let me know and I can help you out here.

Thanks
Tim

    Wait a moment here... I just read the second part of your question and it says the picture and sound are fine, but then you say the picture is shaky. So you're saying the picture looks fine it's just moving around? Is it looping, basically scrolling vertically? Or is it just vibrating... ? How would you describe it

    Thanks
    Tim

    Please if possible come back to the question here and rate it 4 thumbs. It looks like the answer helped you, but for some reason it doesn't rate it 4 thumbs unless you come back a second time and specify 4 out of 4 thumbs. I hope you will do this for me. Thanks Tim

My vizio VW42L has a picture, but the sound went out....how can we get the sound back


Use your remote and find RESET from the settings. I have a tendency to reset the sound on my TV's with all of my remotes, sometimes a different remote for a different TV or stereo will do something funky and turn off my sound the only way to get it back is to reset the settings and reprogram the channels.

My 42" Vizio LCD HDTV


It can be the unstable power supply due to bad DC filter caps, bad T-CON boards, main board.
I would inspect the power supply first for caps with domed tops.

Or www.digikey.com just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
