Unfortunately the screen diagnostic is the correct one for this serie of samsung tv`s , namely the logic buffer boards that are now permanently bonded to the screen ribbon cables to avoid the bad contacts that were frequent in the past but this also means that they are not replaceable without replacing the panel which of course is not really a viable option unless you`d have a spare tv for parts
