2009 Vizio XVT Series: 240Hz, USB input, LED backlight [NO PRICE TALK] - Page 167

I was finally able to get my TV fixed.
It was not the main board as I originally suspected but, the T-con board which is at the top of the picture I posted earlier.
Less than $50 from Tri State Modules.

Anybody still around reading this thread?? I have a problem thats started with my VF 551XVT that i've had since 2-10. Within the last couple weeks some very feint, grey streaks have appreared about a third of the way up from the bottom of the screen and from the the right side to approx the middle. There's about four of them, their vertical, not straight up and down but at a slight angle, kind of an arc about 2 to 4 inches long. At first I thought they were smudges from dusting the screen with a microfiber rag: their that feint. Of course I examined the screen with the set off and couldnt see anything. With some backgrounds they are not seen very well but solid color backgrounds especially white they really stick out. Another thing is that they seem to be more pronounced the longer the tv is on.
I'm really bummed as we've had nothing but a great time with this set! Anybody have any ideas??

Sorry to hear. Can't help but yes, you're not alone with the XVT out here. My 47" is still going strong @ 3 years old. usually replace at that time but trying to go 2 more years. Will keep this in mind should problems arise so thanks for sharing.

Sorry to hear of this problem. My 551 and my friends, both bought in Jan 2010, don't have that problem. (We were just commenting the other day that our 3-year Costco/Amex warranty was about to expire, and he was making a claim on a failure of two of his HDMI inputs.)

Can you post a picture of it? I have no idea but could it be a deterioration of a few LED lights behind that area?

I'm going to try to get a good picture. My first attempt didnt work so well. Maybe I'll use the snowy, white background of the x games: The lines were showing up pretty well.

I've got a stuck pixel on my panel. Tried tapping the dead pixel, unplugging TV, running a test pattern clip from the USB port, etc. I bought mine in the fall of 2009. Been great up til now. errr Can't take your eyes off that tiny green dot. Any other ideas to fix this issue?

Random question: was there ever a firmware update for the vf551xvt? Just curious...
post #4988 of 4988
No firmware update for the 551. They never released one. What is it you were wanting to see changed?
