My Vizio TV has dark spot top left corner

My TV has dark spot on top left hand corner of screen. You can see the picture in the background but the colors are all darker. EX whites are yellows. It is the top 1/4 of the tv. Its like a big dark rectangle at the top of the tv. The colors are darker on the left side. As you get to the right, the colors improve to almost perfect but you can still see a faint line of dark.

Hi Brandon,
I am afraid that the dark spot in the screen is not repairable. Manage as long as you can or go for a new tv.

My vizio flat screen has screen stuck in top right


Your TV is in Picture in Picture (PiP) mode. The small picture is the previous live input. The bigger dark area is the current input where there's no live source.

Find the PiP button on the TV remote or via the TV's menus. Press PiP a number of times to cycle through the options. Stop when the picture is the size you want.

Have a read of your TV manual. Stuff like this is detailed in there.

I just replaced bulb with new and after a day there is a dark spot on the screen


I have the same TV - I have a dark spot in the upper left hand corner. I have always thought this TV was dark. Be sure to get OME lamp. Cheaper ones are not worth it and can damage your TV more.
dlplampsource,com--Just a note if this ever happens to you. TV would not come on in the AM-Had no picture, but had sound. It was not the lamp, but the safety switch. It's blue and at the bottom of the lamp housing. As soon as I flipped it and replaced the back cover, the TV came on.

Vizio lcd flatpanel tv with dark background


If half screen is affected it will be either a board (LCD and Plasma have different names) but in those one board drives each side of the screen unit--worst case is the display panel itself which is fatal from a cost point of view.

Vizio HDMI HDTVmodel VW48LHDTV10A TV sound went out and the picture got dark from outside of the screen


The inverter board is common on this set to go out, once dark then you can use a flashlight to determine that it is bad, 2 in away from screen and you should see the picture in background, the sound is something else, it will be located on the main video board, look for bad caps bulging out.
