Anyhow, moving on as the LCD displays use timing control boards.

So here's some video by Shopjimmy on plasma but if you are SERIOUS you buy the service manual.
In the USA it's over at samsungparts.com. NO TV TECHS ARE SHOWING UP HERE.
I'm just an electronics designer, software author etc.
I am in no way an expert in Plasma/LCD/LED Flat screen TVs. That being said, I am savvy enough to know how a multimeter works and how to safely do work on electronics. I have a Samsung plasma tv that has no picture but has sound. The research that I have done points to replacing the Y-Main, which I understand is what turns on the screen in the first place. My question is: Is there a way to test the Y-main board to see if it is indeed viable? I had another tv, LED back lit that I played the "replace the parts till it works" game, I replaced the Main board and the graphics board before I discovered that it was the T-con boards, which was by far the cheapest and most readily available part.
