When I turn on TV the picture is fine for about 30 mins then colors fade.
Sorry for delay
During the time the fault is present if you press the menu button of the sets own remote control is the menu dull too?

Hi Anthony I think so cant quite remember, I turned the TV on this morning and it seems to be OK on for about one hour, last night when picture went dull and lost color I turned it off and back on again and it was OK for about 10 mins before gradually going dull and losing color. George
George thanks for the info but you do need to be sure, next time its does it press the menu button of the sets own remote control, is the menu too bad?

Hi Anthony, after the TV was on for 90 mins. the color became distorted, went in to menu and writing seemed normal
OK the next check is using another input like a DVD player or similar, hook up another input and take note of the quality of the picture is it dull? Anthony

Hi Anthony my usual TV is Sky satellite, I also have IPTV box which streams TV to my TV I switched to this and picture was still the same.

When I said picture is dull eventually it is like looking at a negative of a picture
Yes I understand but the menu in my mind MUST be affected by this ?please examine the menu again when the fault is at its worse is the menu display poor?or is it nice and bright and normal?this check is so important for diagnosis
I believe the tcon board is bad but if it is the menu will be bad too

Hi Anthony if you check this link you will see picture of Samsung TV which looks exactly like mine with fault so looks like it is the tcon board it is the same model as mine. see
Yes the chances are it is the t-con or if you are unlucky the LCD panel itself (bad news) be sure to order the t-con by part-number only and use e-bay as a very last resort google the part-number for suppliers Its found usually at the top middle of the set covered by a metal shield you will see a multistrand lead from the main-board going to it Let me know if you need more info Please remember to rate positively thank you there will be a rating band with this post thanks again Anthony

Hi Anthony thanks for pointing me towards the tcon, I will take a chance on it and let you know how it went. Regards George
