Question about Vizio VO47L 47 in. LCD TV
I purchased this TV on January 5th and it worked great at first. A couple of
weeks went by and one morning I noticed that some of the screen that should be
showing up black in color was a bright red( all other areas of the screen were
normal). I turned off the TV and the next time I turned it on the red had gone
back to black and everything was fine.
It continued to work perfectly for awhile after that, but then the problem showed up again. Again turning it off for a while, then turning it back on had fixed it for a bit. It then began happening more and more frequently, at which point I called in to tech support. I was told to do several things including resetting the picture mode through the menu, and unplugging the set and holding the power button down for 25 sec.
None of these suggestions have worked, and now the problem is happening 100% of the time, even after turning it off. The problem occurs on every input of the TV (cable, dvd, hdmi, ect...) I am becoming very frustrated with this, I purchased the TV only a month and a half ago and already there are major issues with it.
This is a LVDS cable issue. All you have to do is call Vizio and they will send out a tech and replace the LVDS cable along with the Main Board. This should resolve the pixilation issue.

Return the tv for an exchange. It is so early into your warranty period.

I had this problem as well. You need to either change or just re-connect ribbons and cables connecting LCD and motherboard.Simple as that
