Hello...
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 11 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

The t-con`s just fail , that is all

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 11 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 11 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 11 months ago

You mean the prefix letters do not match ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 11 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 11 months ago
No, the #'s on my T-con board are apparently used for different S/N TV?
Customer reply replied 11 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 11 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 11 months ago

Thats good then , better by the part number

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 11 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 11 months ago

Again there is NO way of knowing without trying another one

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Have you experienced just a bad T-con as causing issue?
And replacing it cured problem..
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 11 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

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 11 months ago

Unless this specific model has that issue

ALSO, I just tried to repair a friends Insignia NSLCD37-09 for Solarization, T-con did not fix, However it is 85% better?
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 11 months ago

Bad lvds cable possibly

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
RE-seated several times, NG.
I think LG (Insignia) panel may be BAD
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 11 months ago
