    Thanks for the respones. I heard somewhere about something called pixel nonrecognition and that if you leave the screen totaly white for a period of time it might fix the problem. Was that just garbage.

A shadow of any kind showing up on a LCD TV is going to be a defective LCD panel. If not under warranty your replacement cost for the panel (if available) will far exceed replacing the TV with a new one.

    At this point you have nothing to loose especially if the warranty is no longer valid. I bet it won't do anything to fix the issue at all. Good luck.

New 37 in. tv conn. to cable not hdtv i have approx a 4" black band on each side and 2" band top & bottom is this a setting issue or because i don't have the hdtv box?


According to all the tech sheets I can see, this unit has no Tuner. If your using the cable box to change channels it probably doesn't support HDTV, except maybe for the individual channels. You might be able to access your TV's on-screen menu to change the way programs are displayed.

Black shadow on screen vizio 37 in lcd hdtv


There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If the TV is under warranty—whether the original warranty from the manufacture or an extended warranty purchased with the TV—call the company providing the warranty coverage and they will arrange to have your TV repaired at little, or no cost to you.


Since some brands will pay for your repair even if you're out of warranty, especially if they've heard of your problem before and it's a known issue. You should always contact the manufacture first for your full range of options. If they're willing to fix the TV for free, or at a reduced cost to you, let them!


If the TV is out of warranty, and you have the experience and you know what you're doing, you can fix the TV yourself. Purchase the service manual from the manufacture to get started. However, if you've never done anything like this type of repair before and you don't know where to start, I suggest speaking with an experienced TV repair-person.


If you decide to pay for out of warranty repair by a professional repair shop, the total cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.


I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today!


Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

Hello, it looks like your inverter boards are going out. If you are atleast a bit technical you can open the units back cover, and get the part numbers for the inverter board, these are the (one or two (master or slave) boards) you can get the part numbers and check out different prices at www.shopjimmy.com, or email Westinghouse parts department for price and availability at parts@wde.com.

It is likely that a circuit board might have cracked in the fall and/or a chip might have cracked. LCD's are more fragile than conventional CRT's.
