Welcome to the site! I'm Dan. What kind of "take apart" are we talking about here? Total disassembly?

Took the back the back completely off and plugged one wire harness

It sounds like the LVDS cable has been disconnected. Do you know which cable that is?

Ask Your Own TV Question

If you're seeing offers for additional services (like phone calls), rest assured those are coming from the site and not me. They're automated.

OK what is the LVDS cable

Post a picture of the back of the TV with the cover removed and I will mark it for you.

Post it where

Here in the chat. If you're on a computer, there's an "Add Files" next to your send button.

If the photo is good enough quality, I'll even be able to zoom in and find what the problem is.

Ask Your Own TV Question

Yes, I did. On >>THIS BOARD<< you need to find the connector (on the other side of the board) labeled CP2800. That's where the LVDS cable goes.

Ask Your Own TV Question

The other side of the cable goes to the screen. When that cable is disconnected or broken, you get a solid white screen.

Ask Your Own TV Question

OK, in >>THIS DIAGRAM<< I marked where the cable connects to the board. Don't try to read the words on the diagram, because I had to flip the picture around a few times so it matched the orientation of your picture.

OK thank you

Were you able to check that cable? Even if it is connected, it would be wise to disconnect it on both ends and then reconnect it securely. If that doesn't work, replace the cable because it may be damaged (check ShopJimmy.com for parts). And if a new cable doesn't help, then you may have damaged the timing control board and/or the main board which are the 2 boards that are connected by the cable. If that's where you end up, it would probably be best to let a local servicer do some troubleshooting and then replace the board(s).

I really hope that answers your question! Let me know if you need anything else. Oh, and please take a second to rate the service I provided (there should be a 5-star scale on your page somewhere). Don't worry, that won't close your question and you can still respond back at any time.
