Question about Vizio L37 Television
Hello there...hopefully you can help. I have a 6 month old Vizio VW37L TV and recently the dark brown colors displayed on screen are outlined in bright green pixels. Very annoying. This seems to come and go and is mostly noticed when watching TV, not movies through the HDMI. Vizio customer support just suggested resetting the TV settings. Already did that. Any ideas?
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.

I don't know if this will work for everyone with this issue, or even if
it will work for me in the long run, but I seem to have resolved the
issue (for now anyway) by taking the back off of mine and reseating all
of the connections. Mind you, I don't have a warranty with mine as I
bought it from a private party.
If you do this, do disconnect the power and A/V connections before you take the back off the set. Also, it's a good time to blow out any dust build up.
On another note, the pixeling effect is known as graphical artifacting, and can be caused by a faulty component or by heat. My set does get kinda warm, so I have moved it to a well ventilated location. So far so good!
