I was holding out hope for a firmware update but finally opened a ticket requesting the board replacement. I love this set pre 1.60, but I'm thinking this may be my last Vizio .

I feel like a parrot with this solution but try turning smart dimming on then off again and see if it fixes the issue. If it does, this "fix" will likely only stick until you change inputs or turn...

I recommend disconnecting your TV from the network if you do NOT have 1.60...its caused many of us problems with breaking the smart dimming feature. Just my .02.
