Customer Question
I have a vizio...

I have a vizio 65 inch smart tv the screen seems to have darken all but the lower left corner is this a board component issue or a bad lcd panel?

Technician's Assistant: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your Vizio TV?

Not at this time

Technician's Assistant: Was there a power outage recently?

Not that I know of but I am not home until late evening
