Good evening Shahid

I knew I should have been more specific.

The television is a panasonic VIERA ser number NM-2622599.

About 4 Years old.

The problem appeared this evening.

The shadow is vertical and covers about 50% of the screen.


Good Evening Stuart, Please check model number that would start like TC-xxx or TX-xxx or some thing similar to proceed further.Thanks.

Oh oops

Model TX-L32E5B

Thanks, ***** ***** of problem always related to display panel (screen) and if this TV has circuit board mounted under metal shield at top or bottom center of rear of panel (t-con board) then it worth a try to swap that board with identical one to see if it helps to resolve the problem. If t-con board is not there (it means its circuit is designed inside screen) then entire screen will need to be replaced which would cost more than new TV price of same size so at that point you would be better off with a new TV.I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.A positive rating to answer would be greatly appreciated, please click on smiley face/star on this page then click submit/finish button so I can get credit on website for my work.
