No thanks, we wanted a new one. Edgelite leds are more reliable. No college son visiting, no children throwing around toys. Once the back is off, its 5 min to replace all 3 boards. I have a barely 2 year old Vizio 4k 43inch tv with a bar of distortion at the bottom. My son is out of college, married with his own home. They said no, too bad.
Common problems that can be repaired include a blank screen, sound issues, power problems and digital connection problems. Instead they made a response regarding defective panels, although we never inquired about panel defects. There was no noticeable damage on the box. Vizio replaced defective in-warranty sets with refurbished units, which a number of owners complained also failed soon after the warranty period. Vizio is trash to me now and I will steer everyone I know away from them. As with any consumer electronic product, as technology advances, parts are sometimes phased out and when unavailable, can affect our ability to make repairs on older models.
Vizio is a terribly dishonest company to do this to their customers. If your flat screen is too massive to transport, most repair companies have pickup and drop-off service. But, hey, have a nice day! It is not the customers fault! Now I get vertical lines on one side the other pcb from the damage, and on the area where the detached ribbon is, no signal. I brought it home I looked at the box. The panel of the display is not something that can be fixed. Can anyone help me with this or know about how much the repair will cost? I work for one of vizio's competitors doing the same job the rep that calls you does.
I would advice you to contact the dealer where you bought the unit and inquire if they can do something on your problem. I will never buy another Vizio product again. It is time to replace it. Private messages do not impact your company rating. Do yourself a favor and pay a little extra for a different brand and do not buy a Vizio television.

These cases are not common, but when we do run across them, we typically will offer the customer an option of buying a new set at a discounted price…. Before this issue came up, I liked the tv so much that I recently bought a 70inch for our living room. The other ones can be sold for parts and usually around 100-200% profit. That sucks, I hope you're able to get it fixed! I actually thought Netflix was pixelating, so turned the Vizio off and on again. The initial price may be inciting, but the long term cost is way more than buying a better brand. I like the one guy that said he was on vacation for two weeks and when he got back it was like that. Aligning in the upfront about your budget will save both you and your repairman time and energy in the long run.
And look at the feedback of the seller. Just wondering if this is a problem that can be easily fixed if the right parts are found. Contact the local government to see if there are options for recycling centers.

Pull up older posts there. I suggest you do the same. Vizio said we dropped it or it fell. It would just need to be replaced. Replacing the main circuit board solved the problem. Unfortunately, it is extremely unlikely that you will be able to find a replacement panel, and for a cost that makes repair sensible. These lines can be diagonal, curved, in a zig zag pattern, or the display might have a spiderweb shaped crack.
