TV freezes when switching to a digital channel

The TV will lock up or freeze when switching to a digital channel. It wil only happen when using the channel up or down. Not when inputting the channel. Also it is not the same channel where the issue happens.
The remote or the buttons on the side of the TV will not respond. The only way to bring the tv back is to pull the power cord.

Issue was with the HD channels only.
Updated the firmware of the TV to ver 2.

Now the TV will stutter for a second when changing to a HD channel but it no longer locks up.

SOURCE: TV freezes when switching to a digital channel

The problem your describing can be contributed to your cable box. Depending on your cable company there are times when the box has trouble translating the signal to the tv. You tv is operating normally. Suggest to the cable company to switch your box.

My vizio tv turns on but had no display


UNPOWERED INPUT DEVICE

Check to make sure the device you're trying to use with your TV is plugged in and turned on. While it may seem like a silly oversight, it is possible that you switched on your TV and didn't actually turn on your DVD player, gaming console or whatever device you're trying to enjoy. If you tried to use a remote to turn on the device, check that the batteries still have a charge and turn on the device using its built-in power button.
TIP The problem may be your input device itself. Check your TV with other devices and see if it displays them properly. If it does, contact customer support for your device for more detailed troubleshooting instructions

WRONG INPUT CHANNEL

Make sure that your TV is on the right input channel for the device you're trying to use. When your TV isn't switched to the right channel, no visual or audio input from the device will display on your screen or through your speakers. Turn on the input device and press the Input button on your remote to cycle through your input channels until you see the device's display on your screen.

AV CONNECTION PROBLEMS

If you're on the right input channel and your device is turned on, there may be a problem with the physical connection between the device and your TV. Make sure that all cable connections are secure, and also that all cables are connected to the In ports on your TV and the Out ports on your input device. If you're using a connection that has color-coded plugs, make sure the connectors are inserted into their appropriate color-coded ports.
If you're using an HDMI connection, make sure that the cable you're using is compliant with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection, especially if your TV and input device are both HDCP-enabled. HDCP is a copy protection system that prevents the copying of digital video and audio content as it travels over the connection. Systems connected with non-compliant cables won't display any video or audio conten

FROZEN TV

Periodically a TV may freeze up, showing that it's still turned on but not actually displaying any information from your input device or the TV's menu system. To fix a freeze, power cycling is the best solution. TEP 1 Turn off the TV by pressing and holding the Power button on the cabinet until the TV powers down.
STEP 2 Unplug the TV from the wall power outlet.
STEP 3 Press and hold the Power button on the cabinet for 30 seconds, and then release it.
STEP 4 Plug the TV back in and turn it back on using the Power button on the cabinet or your remote control.

HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE FAULT

If everything is correctly set up, powered on and on the right channel and you still aren't getting any picture or sound, there may be a hardware or software fault in your TV. The best way to check is to press the menu button on your TV or remote and see if the on-screen menu appears. If the menu doesn't appear, contact repair

What does D03-1 mean


The TV has several inputs, Video 1, Video 2, HDMI, etc. One of the inputs is Digital. TV stations switched from broadcasting analog signals years ago. You may remember having to buy a digital antenna, or possibly if using cable or satellite service never knew it happened. You can press the input button on your remote until you see D03-1 on the screen and then do a channel search. You may pick up some extra channels that are being locally broadcasted for free in your city.

Just bought a Sony XBR9 and Comcast gave me a Motorola DCT6200 box which has a DVI output to a HDMI input into the TV. When switching from a HD channel to an analog or digital channel, the picture is...


I am having the exact same issue. It started happening within the first few hours of turning on the XBR9 for the first time. I also have a Motorola box from Comcast. This did not happen with the HD TV that was hooked up previously. Did you return the TV?

Hdtv picture freeze


I also have a Brand new Sony Bravia 52" LCD with Comcast Cable (motorola box).When switching between HD Channels sometimes the left side of the screen shows a smushed version of the new channel, and the right side is a frozen picture of the previous channel. I correct this by switching to a non HD channel and back. Cable or TV problem I wonder?

Very odd tv problem


Digital receivers whether external to the TV (converter box, satellite) or built in are digital processors(computers). Just like computers there are times when they freeze up. This can happen if the data stream is corrupted too much to render the picture, but enough signal to lock. The processor attempts to "wait" long enough to gather enough information to begin. Just like computers, these need to be re-booted by turning on or off and sometimes unplugged and plugged in. You have either too low of signal quality or too high of signal strength, which is a problem with digital receivers.
