Michael its a bad tcon board, this is the board that drives the LCD panel furthermore their is a chance that the LCD panel itself could be bad (very bad news) however most of the time the tcon board is responsible, now further to this the tcon board cannot be checked it can only be replaced to eliminate it, in my experience though 90% of the time this issue is the tcon board and not the panel (screen)

Let me know if you wish to replace this board and I will provide all necessary info

Thanks

Thanks for that ,can you please tell me where I can obtain a tcon board?

Expert:  info tech replied 2 years ago.
Michael yes www.flattvparts.co.uk or www.lcdtvparts.co.uk

However what you must do is get the board out of the set carefully its usually mounted upper middle of the set and is covered by a shield, when you have it out you must order by partnumber only as there are variants of the board that wont work.

Let me know if you need more info
