this is a touchy subject for sony. basically sony has increased the brightness levels for the backlights to have better color tones in thier lcd's. well the downfall of this is the white spots you are experiencing. this is not a defect, you will never get them to go away, the only thing you can do is to turn the backlight and brightness down to reduce the white spots. if you contact sony, there is a software upgrade that will help reduce this issue...

Easy fix. I had the same green dot problem and I removed the front panel (no screws). In the center is a panel that has two screws. Remove them and pull the cover off. There you will find the projection bulb. Do not clean the bulb but instead the base. Use a damp cloth to wipe the dust off the black disk (the base of the projection bulb housing). Apparently the dust through static electricity may cause enough magnetism to distort your picture. Hope this helps.

OK Service tech came out last night (7pm) and repalces the main board and updated firmware to the latest. he said the red/green snow is a fairly common problem with the early units (mine was a july 2006 build). Picture is fine now but we will see how long the fix lasts. Main board was definitely the issue, firmware upgrade was prob just because they could.
Keep in mind this unit was OUT of warranty. I find it refreshing that Vizio took responsibility and set up a service ticket for a 16 month old unit. Not that they shouldn't last a lot longer but they could have just said tough luck.

You must contact a svc co. This is a upper or lower buffer board problem and possibly a control board. Nothing you have done wrong, it just happened.
