I just got quoted $705 from the Vizio certified repair partner. Nice. Nice and way too expensive. I may as well buy a new TV instead. It certainly won't be a Vizio. They told me a I needed a Y systainer, C systainer and a right-driver board.
Lame. I'm trying to find something local.

Bought mine in 2005 too.........just started with green (rainbow patterns in background), bad overall coloring and dark shadows on faces on the screen. 5 yr shelf life maybe!

If I am right, this is an expensive problem.
The minute pixels that make up the display are turned off and on by circuits arranged in an X-Y matrix. To avoid using one circuit to control each pixel, the circuits are rapidly scanned at a rate higher than the eye can detect.
One or more of the circuits that do the scanning have failed on your set and the ugly part is, the display panels often have these mounted on the display itself forming a 'package' that speeds assembly and are made only by a few companies. If yours is one of these, the entire panel would have to be replaced since the integrated circuits used are very small and have pin spacings that pretty much preclude replacement by hand since they were originally placed by robots.
I hope for your sake the display panel and its control circuits are separate and the panel is still fine since the cost of an integrated replacement may prove to be about 1/2 to 3/4 of the cost of a new set.
