Help with scary TV noise

Hi all, We have a 8 month old Vizio 65 inch TV. At any given time it will make a very loud "snap" like sound and then go blank for about 2 seconds. Then all comes back and it is fine. This may happen once every day or two. The noise almost sounds like a very loud electrical arc of some kind. Anyone else have a Vizio TV doing this ?? Thanks

That certainly isn't a common problem.
I'd look into warranty replacement or repair while it's still under a year old.

Sounds like a capacitor shorting out. Agreed, submit a replacement or repair request ASAP while it's still under warranty.
