I think there are a few different things that result in similar symptoms. For those whose yellow band follows a distinct vertical line exactly where other split-screen anomalies occur - the band could be due to different processing or color temperatures between the screen halves. For those whose bands are less well-defined, the yellow area could be due to the way the panel is attached to the frame or unevenness in the panel's surface. Just look what happens when you press on the panel with your finger - the colors go haywire. It wouldn't take much pressure variance to cause a yellow-tinted area.
Only Vizio knows what's causing it, whether it can be fixed, or if it's simply inherent to the set's design. As widespread as the problem seems to be, I tend to think it's simply inherent to the design. That doesn't mean it should be there, but it suggests that endlessly swapping panels in the hope of finding a good one could be a fool's errand.
If small led lights are to be used in different zones within a bigger lighted area it makes sense to have vertical and horizontal zone array , so that you can control them via software on an X and Y axis .
I'm prepared to place a small wager that if you play around with different settings you can make a series of perfectly spaced lines ...
I'll also wager the center line will be in the position of the line you're talking about ...
I'll also "double-up" that wager that the same amount of zones in a screen 1/4 of the size won't be visible to the human eye
I got an led maglight for Christmas so have no real need to light the house with a 65" flashlight
Don't take my wagers as "a challenge" , I'm not here for an arguement ...
I'm hoping to get mine on a wall mount this weekend .
It's a solid metal slimline mount that without shims will simply follow any curve in the drywall and due to minimal play with force stresses on the chassis of the TV , which is obviously wider than it is tall . And which is also the plane that will cause Most stress on the TV due to my simple "French cleat" type wall-mount .
Without borrowing a laser from work I don't know how "true" my wall is ....
Who wants to wager I see something different once it's hanging ???
I don't think the wall is that bad , but I might be the the first to own a curved screen p-series !!!
