Hello...
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

Hello

There are no ways of checking the panel beside trying a new t-con

In any case i doubt very much the panel would have blown the t-con , never seen that myself

At worse you wont get a picture

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

There are some 4 versions of that t-con by the way and you will need to match yours with one of those at the link below ;

I tested the T-con as per Shop Jimmy...TESTS BAD, although they say the panel causes it to fail 75% of all cases..
That's my concern...I have already ordered the T-con from them but still have time to cancel..
Sound is fine, light blue backlight..
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

Unless it is a problem particular to this model , this is rare and again , no ways to test the panel without trying another t-con

I ordered the SAME #'s on board, however the serial # of the TV is not the same..
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

You mean the prefix letters do not match ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

How about the letters stamped on the t-con itself , do they match what you ordered

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No, the #'s on my T-con board are apparently used for different S/N TV?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
the #'s on my T-con board match what I ordered...
Just don't want to blow the replacement T-con board..
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

Yes its quite possible but i mean does the numbers and letters on the t-con itself match ??

Thats the most important here

Here is an example , take a look at this one and all the boards it can replace

http://www.shopjimmy.com/sony-vizio-runtk5261tpze-cpwbx5261tpze-t-con-board.htm

This one has ZE stamped on it

Mine has ZM on it, that's what I ordered..
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

Thats good then , better by the part number

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Again, my concern is that they claim T-con board failure is caused by Panel..
Although there is some reports of Vizio T-con board having failed..
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

Again there is NO way of knowing without trying another one

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Have you experienced just a bad T-con as causing issue?
And replacing it cured problem..
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

One thing though , vizio is known for bad panels but usually are spots or lines etc.

Yes 95% of the time the t-con fix the problem

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 8 months ago

Unless this specific model has that issue
