Re: Vizio M550NV No picture, backlights work.

So this test I'm describing should tell me for sure whether it's the t-con or the panel?

Is there a possibility of messing anything up by performing this test?

Re: Vizio M550NV No picture, backlights work.

I hate to bump old threads, but this is exactly what my M550NV is doing. I can disconnect 1 of the cables from the T-Con and half the screen works but when I reverse it, the other half does not.

Re: LCM-22w2...another story...

They told me that those caps that they sell are only for single CCFL setups. Mine is dual CCFLs. Also, mine were damaged when taking them off.

If the RTV silicone gasket or silicone caulk will...

Re: LCM-22w2...another story...

These are the ONLY markings on the back of the LCD panel. CCFLWAREHOUSE.COM said they mean nothing.

Re: LCM-22w2...another story...

So, I'm not sure what to do. CCFLwarehouse.com is unable to help me without a model/make of the panel and I don't have a micrometer to measure the diameter of this thing.

I still can't tell what make/model this screen is. There are NO other markings by which to tell who made this lcd panel.

Re: LCM-22w2...another story...

I can see that the top would get the most heat, so it's understandable they would most likely go out first.

Should I replace BOTH CCFLs at the top then? Surely the other wouldnt be that far...

Re: LCM-22w2...another story...

Ok, so I finally was able to test for which of the 4 bulbs was bad. 3 of the 4 tests continued to do the 2 seconds to black, so the bulb that was disconnected on the 1 test that worked correctly is...

Re: LCM-22w2...another story...

This makes a lot of sense. I guess I just thought that one of the plugs was the return instead of one of the wires in each PLUG being the return. I will try this tonight and post back my findings....

Re: LCM-22w2...another story...

I guess i didnt. I thought that, because the wiring colors are different, that it was 2 CCFLs, not 4. So the different colors dont mean anything?
