@deek72 could be a bad panel, bad power board/inverter or bad LED backlight array. It will depend on how dark it gets. Post some images of what you see with your question. Use this guide for that. Remove the back of your TV after you unplug it and take some pistures of the boards on the inside of your TV as well. Let us know what the model is.

Should not have to troubleshoot a TV that is so new. Like most of us don't have that much time. Or skill. ha

I am having the same problem

I did a factory reset through the menu, and also pulled the power plug and held the power button down for 10 seconds.

Picture is dark, I turned up the brightness and the backlight settings in menu, and it's watchable, But still not right .I have normal sound.

Same problem with all different inputs.

My Vizio model # D50u-D1 all of a sudden started being really dark and the picture goes in and out. I replaced the calibrator and it is still doing it. Also turned backlight and all other picture settings off in advanced settings.
