TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 months ago

Thanks

Did not realize you were in Australia , does not change much except to find parts if needed

There could be a few reasons for that indeed

The t-con , the connections between the t-con and lcd panel or the panel itself

Try knocking or taping on the tv`s frame above that line to see if that has any effect ?

If you received a $26 phone offer or any offers they are automated by the website ,NOT BY ME , I`m an independent tech. and have no control over those, they are optional and you can just ignore them if you don`t want it

I done the tapping and it doesnt change
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 months ago

OK then the next step would be to remove the back cover , pull out the ribbon cable from the t-con board and clean the contacts with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol before re-inserting and locking it securely

If still no go then the only way to find out if the t-con or panel is at fault is by trying another t-con , no other ways about that

Perhaps once the back cover is removed you may be able to put some pressure on the ribbon cable where it goes into the panel , it could be the bonding that is coming apart and that would be way more effective a test beside tapping

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I've essentially done all you mentioned... without using rubbing alcohol.. disconnected the ribbons to check for damage or dirt and nothing there. Connectors look fine.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 months ago

How old is this tv by the way ?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
less than 2 years

You` don`t happen to have an extended warranty do you ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 months ago

Was reading something at some point about consumer protection in australia

Something about manufacturer defect that would go beyond the standard manufacturers warranty

You may want to check into that ?

Was looking for a t-con for this tv and i`m not surprised that i could not find anything

Perhaps the store where you bought it would give you their service center contact info and you could get it through them ?

I would try cleaning the ribbon cable for that side of the screen first though

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I've checked the warranty position and nothing more is available.
I dont see the value in cleaning/inspecting the ribbons again to be honest
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 months ago

You never said you did that already

Yes but did not say "cleaning/inspecting the ribbons"

This does not look good for the panel then

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 months ago

Inspecting and cleaning are quite different here

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 months ago

Did you search for that board already ?

I would think you did ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
how else would you check for damage other than disconnect the ribbons?! its implied as much as its implied I took the back off the tv!
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I did.
I came onto this site to ask a specific question on how to tell if its a panel issue or a board issue.
