Here it's a manufacturer's forum and you need a TV repair forum if you are beginning your TV repair career. Be sure to know where to get shop manuals and parts at sites like samsungparts.com, shopjimmy. and the other usual places like craigslist, ebay to find dead units with hard to find pieces
Just writing for the first time in the hope I can get some guidance to save me some time and/or money.
My TV as in the subject line just went out. The sound is working but all I have on the screen is a thin white vertical line going up the center, well slightly off center to be honest.
There have been, what I can only describe as some background shadows visible on the screen for a while, but now nothing. If I gently tap the screen it goes bright where I tap it and it looks like the back lights are all ok
After a bit of reading it seems a common fault is the tcon board, do you think this could be my issue taking the description into account?
Thanks for any help in advance.
