Thumbs down Dark spots VIZIO M801d-A3 80-Inch 1080p 3D LED HDTV

So I purchased the VIZIO M801d-A3 80-Inch 1080p 3D LED HDTV
After a year and a Half I started to notice dark spots, Almost like the black blob I have been hearing so much about in the center on the screen. I have talked to vizio and altho I spent close to $4,000 on this tv and my extended warranty does not cover this issue they refuse to offer me any help. I talked with a supervisor customer assistant named Josie and she was rude refused to return phone calls and offer me zero assistance.
From what I hear this is a common issue with vizio and I am looking for other people that have had this issue.

If anyone can help on what they feel the cause is and what course of action to take, I am about ready to start a call action with this company.

Thank you

M801d-A3 80-Inch

I have this model as well. It has black spots in the left side and center areas too. I have had it for about 36 months and had the spots for well over a year.
I had Square Trade as the extended warranty company. They had me send pictures fro different angles and formats (TV, Blu-Ray player)and after about two weeks they came back and offered me a 75 inch Samsung 3d 4K ultra to replace it with.
In as much no one seems to make any repair parts I took the Samsung and hoping I hear or see where Vizio stands up and release a fix or the parts to do it as my 3d Movie collection is huge.
