    Ok so my LCD tv crapped out on me. I've currently got it totally blown apart into different pieces. When you first turn it on it works fine for about 20-30 seconds, then the screen starts going blue, white, all kinds of random colors. I've checked all the boards and can't see where anything appears to have burnt up. Any ideas?????????? :confused:

    seems to me like the display must be fine since it will work for a few seconds, so the way I figure it must be the main board or that small board at the top backside of the screen....

    Yea this thing has been acting up for awhile now. Finally decided to tear into it today and see what I could figure out. I'm about half tempted to just order a new tcon board and see if that fixes it.

    Apparently the tcon board is what actually controls the lcd display. in price comparison, new tv of equal size = $800, new tcon board = $80
