Hi Will

Sorry for the delays
OK if your seeing the menu but its covered by the haze too then you have a problem with either the tcon board OR the LCD panel itself, their is a catch 22 situation with this though, the tcon cannot be checked it can only be replaced to eliminate it, if its still the same after that then it further confirms panel failure, their is however a very good chance that the problem IS the tcon board do you think you can replace this board yourself?I will provide more detailed info on how to do that

Let me know thanks
Once again I am sorry for delay I am working even now I am on call
