Visio M550VSE showing bright white...
Visio M550VSE showing bright white haze with preceptible gray verticle bands on right half of screen. The left half is normal. Images are visiblethrougout screen although visually obscured on the right half by the white haze. My 1st reaction was to replace the t-con board which did not change anything. See attached Pics.

Menu, Imput selection, and volume slider are all hazed over white where they are on the right side of the screen. Visible and readable but a distinct bright white haze covering the entire right half of the screen.

I am afraid the panel (screen)is bad here sorry for bad news

you are saying i can take the tv apart enough to reveal the ribbon cables that connect to the edge of the screen and play with them a bit to see if that makes any change in the image, right?

You could do that but I doubt you will have any success this is a common issue in many guises with modern flat panel Tv the panel itself cannot be repaired
