Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Ask Your Own TV Question

The TV display gets its signal in two halves.

The board for one half is starting to fail and will need to be replaced.

Is this something you are planning to do yourself, or are you looking for a repair estimate?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Which board needs to be replaced? And how much should it cost?

The inverter board connected to the lower LED strips is suspect, you will need to check for the exact model number and version on the board inside your TV.
