Tv wasnt working and kept blowing fuses whenever i tried switching it on. One of the transistors was blown so i replaced that along with a new fuse. The tv now powers on but i get around 30+ vertical thick lines in pink and green alternating across the whole screen. Im a complete novice so not sure if its one of the main boards or could it possibly be bad soldering or wrong mosfet transistor i used?

Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but note that i wont be around much this morning.

Just want to say that if the tv turns on the congrats you did a good job there and if you had the wrong part then it would`ve blown right back .

Now did you check your voltages at the output of the power board ?

Namely the VA and VS voltages ?

These may have changed and the correct value should be on a sticker at the rear of the panel

Look it up and i`ll check on you later
