Question about Vizio GV42L 42 in. LCD Television
I have a Vizio flat screen. I bought it in November. The past couple of weeks, every once in a while, black dots (spots) appear on the screen. They are sporadic. They are not all the time. They go away briefly if I shut the TV off and turn it back on. They are not there if I switch to the Wii System or if I put a movie in. They are there, however, if I go from live TV to something that is on TIVO. Like I said, they are not there on a daily basis, but are very annoying.
This is the digital equivalent to "snow" on a standard TV set. This unit should still be under warranty. I would file a service claim to document the problem. It may not warrant service at this time, but log the problem as an intermittant problem. That should cover you should the problem become solid after the standard warranty period has expired.
