I'm sorry you're having trouble with the TV. There are two possibilities for this symptoms, either t-con board is defective and causing the problem or the display panel/ the screen internal circuitry has been failed due to liquid. Only option is to replace t-con board in TV to confirm if the screen is OK or got damaged.

Required t-con board or repair kit would be available at following board supplier if you have plan to do it yourself...

If you are not comfortable working on it yourself then you may please use following link to get list of TV repair shops in area which will help to get repair quote...

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue.
I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. If you're satisfied, please rate me a 5-star at the top of your page.
Thank you.

If I replace the board, with that resolve both possible issues?
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 10 months ago

As I mention, t-con board replacement may resolve the issue and if problem persist then it will confirm that display panel/ the screen is defective which is costly part that usually costs more than new TV price of same size so a new TV would be better choice.

Replacement T-con board would be available around $20 and worth to try it.
