The screen is white with no menu in back ground. They come up soon as you plug in.

They are hard to find but I got one and installed but nothing has changed don't know if the board I received was good or not so if there is anything else I can check im listening.

Relist: Incomplete answer.
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 2 years ago.
Hi

You cant "test" the board if it has a faulty component on it has to be determined by swopping the board, their is no test procedure which is why I am asking questions to the fault, if by swopping the board the fault clears then you know the board is indeed faulty or not, flat tv technology in the main is a board swopping exercise with no checks or tests other then using the menu as a signal injector this tells me a lot, however your reply so far on that is you have a white screen which is what I dont understand

Thanks for the question. My name is Dan.

>>the picture stays on for alwhile then horizontal lines apear then screen goes black<<

Does this happen every time you turn it on? Picture, then horizontal lines, then black?


Respectfully,
Dan
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes after the tv is on for extended period of time the lines start appearing then goes black
Expert:  Dan replied 2 years ago.
Dim the room and turn the TV on. Wait for the screen to go black. Is there a faint glow coming from the screen like the backlight is on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for your help its the lcd panel that is bad.
Expert:  Dan replied 2 years ago.
