Flickering area on Vizio 4k

I have a 4k Vizio that’s a few years old. Nice picture. Always been pleased with it. Today I noticed some slight flickering on the left side. It’s not overly noticeable but it did catch my eye. It’s a rectangle shape. When put the tv on a static image, you can see a dark rectangular area. There’s still picture but I’m worried it may not be for long. Any ideas??

The back lighting is probably failing.

Yeah maybe some of your led backlights are going.

I am sorry for your loss.

Consumer reports stopped recommending Vizio TV's a few months ago.
