KDL 52W5150 Have...

KDL 52W5150 Have vertical lines on left side screen on start up. After warn up and cycling power the lines will go away and TV has a perfect picture. Have replaced T-Con Board...(Now vertical lines on left side of screen along with horizontal on the entire screen.) Just cycled power and again the picture is perfect.

Technician's Assistant: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your TV?

Only Chromecast

Technician's Assistant: Was there a power outage recently?

NO Picture is perfect now

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

Only that on start up the screen is bad and after cycling power picture is ideal

Ask Your Own TV Question

Firstly it sounds like you have fitted the wrong t-con board or a bad one as if you replaced it and it was not the issue then you would have exactly the same symptoms, the symptoms have changed so its looking like the t-con you fitted isn't up-to the mark did you order by part-number found on the original board ITSELF?or just by model number?

By part number. The two boards look the same

OK if both part-numbers are exactly the same then you will need to send that board back you need to at least get back to the original fault (assuming the replacement does not cure)

Outside of that check the capacitors on the power-board for leaking raised top or ballooning, if you still have issues after getting/fitting a good t-con then I am afraid the LCD panel is bad (screen)

Let me know what you think

Ask Your Own TV Question

Just to add they all look exactly the same but the part-number HAS to be the same as they are not interchangeable even if they do look the same or identical there are many reasons for that
