Hello, I'm Shahid. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this and I'll do my best to help but need the following info to troubleshoot the problem.
- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to the TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?

Comcast box and is connected to all the TV's. This is the only one I am having trouble with
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

Thanks for the info, frozen picture signal is coming from the connected cable box to this TV so please reboot the cable box, disconnect its power cord from power outlet for 2 minutes, reconnect it back in and let it reboot that may take couple of minutes and reply back with the result

OK, can you switch the cable box to another one that is working fine to see if this TV shows normal picture now?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
There is one cable box that all the tv's are connected to

The Tv is on the wall and the wires go into the wall to the box in the closet
