First off let me say that Vizio has just updated my TV to software load 2.0.44 from 2.0.21. I don't know what all this upgrade does as I don't see any changes in what I've been doing. Maybe someone out there knows the answer to the changes this load updates.

Let me say that it's very difficult to troubleshoot your TV from my armchair and that's not why I started this post. If I can help in any way then I'm more than happy to be of help but again this is not the purpose of this thread! I have to ask; 1) Where did you buy this TV? 2) Did it always have this green vertical line on it from day one? 3) If bought from an authorized Vizio dealer was the TV covered by the one year warranty? 4) where did you buy the T-Con board and is it covered by a warranty?
Assuming that all the boards you purchased are good, then we have to look at the panel. Don't know if the panel can cause the problem that you are having but I do know that finding a good used replacement is very difficult. One sold for parts on E-bay that has a good panel would be a good start but keep in mind that those sold for parts are mostly because the TV was dropped and the panel is toast. I still think that the T-con board is suspect but that's just IMO.Edited by flyguy108 - 4/5/14 at 8:29am
