DO NOT BUY VIZIO TVs. D50U-D1. Sudden Black Screen. Panel Defect.
The screen on my Vizio D50u-D1 went black a few days ago. Sound went off too. This strange purple ring has now appeared in the lower right corner (when facing the tv). It's made up of tiny dots. Can I post a photo? We removed the back and all boards look fine as do capacitors and the only fuse we see. I went up and down the source list using the old remote and suddenly got sound but then lost it when I hit the channel button? The screen went black while I had the old remote in my hand. Could it possibly just be a messed up remote setting or something I did while it was in my hand. The remote was pretty much falling apart from falling off my desk so many times so I'm wondering if it's the cause. I purchased a new remote and now the tv screen has backlight and the purple ring. It's not a spot! It's a perfect ring made up of tiny purple dots. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! UPDATE: I received your response oldturkey. Thank you SO MUCH for helping me. Here’s a photo of the ring. I can post photos of the boards if that will help.
