I just recently moved my tv from one house to the other. My HD channels don't look as clear as they used to. Also it just started happening the other day, but when I turn on my TV everything is slighlty blurry. After leaving it on for about 30 seconds the picture comes in clear.

Re: 2 new problems with my TV after my move
Well it may just be the signal in your area that isn't quite as good. That's just fact. Also, because the signal may be weaker, it may take longer for the TV to fine tune to get the best picture quality, which would explain the slight blurring after turning your TV on.

You didn't say what model number, but check the setup menu to make sure it is set for cable (if you are using cable) and not AIR. Otherwise let me know the model number and what you are using for signal (cable, satellite, etc.)
I don't believe the trouble is with your TV. My guess is that you don't have adequate signal for the Analog channels. Make sure all the connections are secure. Does this also happen when playing DVDs? Have you contacted your CATV or Satellite provider for assistance?
I don't believe that it is cost effective. BUT, if you have Comcast, you will now need a cable box to watch most channels now. I believe they stop at about channel 12 without the box. It's their way to stop cable thieves, but it's an inconvenience for the rest of us.
If this isn't the case, you might want to try to contact Vizio tech support www.vizio.com. or try to reset the TV - unplug the TV, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, repeat. Plug it back in and see if it helped.
To get HD channel form your cable TV without using the cable provider HD tuner box but using your TV Clear QAM tuner (your TV has Clear QAM tuner, my TV also has QAM tuner so I do not have to use the cabel box, but my COMCAST does not provide may Clear QAM signals like they use to) to get the unscrambled HD, the cable provider must provide those unscrambled Clear QAMsignals for your TV to pick up the signalS.

Did you use the correct setup during the tuner setup to scan the availabel cable channel per user manual?
First - connect DVD player preferably to the same input (unless you are using RF connector) and make sure that same issue does happens while you are watching movies. If it does - main board in your TV have to be replaced. If it does not - it still cable signal problem.
My set started having sound issues recently. Every now and then, randomly, I get a split second, static sound. It sounds like an old record player when it skips. It happens on all channels HD and digital. Also happens when I'm watching a DVD. This leads me to think that it's not my cable box (Dish Network). I have a Bose 321 aux amp plugged in. I hear it through my aux speakers, as well as directly through the tv set. Not sure what to do. Is it possible my tv's amp is burning out? What could be causing this?
it might sound strange but i think the screen has dropped. I have seen this happen before, is it just one line or 2 as the screen is fitted in the shield, its held by a thin rubber sometimes it can drop when the tv is being moved about or in a lot of vibration like moving it about in a car. now this may sound strange but the last time i fixed one i used 6 match sticks and clean them up and put them in the screen housing and it keep the screen in place after that. but beautiful when removing the screen case as you can inadvertently damage the screen, the screen is only a thick as a bit of cardboard. i suppose you could even put the tv upside down on the bed or something soft and wiggle the screen back into place. this would not damage thew tv and you will not have to take it apart.
