Answers :

The T-CON board is the place to start. If everything else is working (i.e. change channels, sound, etc) then this is almost certainly the problem.
\012It's possible the problem is the connector(s) to the T-CON board. Over time the connections start to lose good contact because of heating/cooling or contamination on the pins.
\012IF YOU KNOW HOW TO WORK WITH ELECTRONICS REPAIR(replace board ) or have a friend with knowledge/skill you can fix it.
\012The T-CON board is located in the center of the back probably behind some metal shielding.
\012After you remove the back cover and get to the board, disconnect the flat cables and carefully reconnect them. Be careful doing this since the connectors have a lip which holds them on and you do not want the damage them. You may temporarily test the set before reassembling it to check the fix.
IF this does solve the problem then turn off again and UNPLUG the set and disconnnect/reconnect the flat cables again.

\012If you are not making any progress in the fix then you may replace the T-CON board.
\012You can search for a board at;
\012other sites in your country
\012(p.s. Since you have the back cover off, take a look at the caps on the power board))
\012The board looks something like;

I have a 1999 Panasonic TV Model# CT32SF35W Serial# MD83450372. When I turn it on the picture doesn't always fully expand vertically, or it will fully expand and there will be blank white lines through the picture, or it will start the shrink and collapse toward the center line of the screen. I've read that this issue may be caused by the vertical IC, or leaking transistors or capacitors. I was wondering if this sounds correct and how costly of a repair this would be.

I have a RCA L26WD26D Flat Screen TV. When you turn it on it will say "please wait". This lasts for 30 seconds or so. Then that goes off and the screen turns black with some sections turning white. It will vary the back and white and will stay like this for maybe 20 minutes. Then it will start showing vertical colored lines. They will change also and eventually turn back to black and white. After leaving the TV on for about 5 or 6 hours, the picture finally shows up and looks fine. So now I'm af

Hi. Lately my tv is turning on but once the video signal is recognized, the screen goes green with vertical lines. Then the set turns off, turns back on, and then I may see a picture but the colors and images are all distorted. After about 5 min of off and on, it would finally correct itself. It does this with any input such as my xbox and dtv. Now it is at the point where it keeps trying to turn itself on and off to seemingly correct the input signal. Each time I may get a green screen, blac

Color smeared I purchased this TV in 2004 and it has been great. It worked great last night but when I turned it on this morning there was a picture but there were large globs of color on the screen with a big purple one in the center of the screen. At the very left edge of the screen there was a thin vertical stripe that looked normal. There appeared to be a horizontal line through the middle of the screen. I assume that there is a technical problem. Thanks Tom - [email protected]
