Thanks

Is the screen a bright blue like a no signal screen or dark with just some background light (backlight) ?

Same as with the old t-con ?

No on screen display like volume level ,channel numbers etc. ?

Bright blue. You can only shut tv off with remote.
Has sound and can change channels, but no pic, just blue screen.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

If you look at the main board (with input connectors) can you see this number BN94-07727C on a bar coded sticker ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

O.k then , I`ll start by saying that a defective t-con would`ve given you either distorted picture , vertical lines or almost totally dark with only background light .

What you have is a defective main board namely its video processing circuit .

This board normally sells for less than $40 .

Where did you buy your t-con ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ebay

I get half a screen when removing one side of ribbon cable.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

Was it some parts reseller or a private ?

Reason for asking is that you perhaps could`ve returned your t-con in exchange for the main board

In any case i`m looking for your board right now

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

You mean that you get a picture , like normal picture on half the screen ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

Or you just get a half blue screen ?

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

Hello ??

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I get a half of a working screen where it shows channels and snow because I disconnected input signal
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

O.k and if you switch to the other side , does it do the same thing ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No, only one side
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

This is worse than i thought then , it would point to a defective panel

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

You get the same exact response with both t-cons ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The right side, when I switch cables, it starts to work then fades
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
both cards act the same.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

This is rather odd .

At this point difficult to call but we know its not the t-con .

I have a main board here that sells for $54 if you want to give it a try ;

http://www.mtvparts.com/product-page/67f5ba56-b18d-0bd9-9e17-3b246cf625f9

Otherwise you are looking at a defective panel .

Only way to find out now is to try it .

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Anyway to test panel
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

Nope

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
How about the main board?
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

You got a link above for that .

You would need service manuals , data and oscilloscopes to see the signal and that is IF you could find data , only way for you is to try it

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok, I see your link for the main board. I hate just changing parts. I thought it was going to be simple.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

Nothing simple about electronics i`m afraid , sometimes it will be apparent but not always and your ways of troubleshotting is quite unorthodox , i would `ve replaced the main board right away

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Other links pointed to TCON. I rushed it.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes but that bright blue screen would not be consistent with a t-con (usually)

Live and learn.

Wish i could be more specific but in this case there is no other ways but to try it
