A new eeprom costs few $ but i have no idea, depends on how much time you can invest on this set, but i don't understand you, before i have said it to you, you claimed you need a new mainboard, so this mainboard is for the trashcan, what do you lost? and second, the other person with equal issue said he have warmed the mainb. and the defect changed, this is not related to a memory.. sure..

i wonder if is the case of purchase a service manual, to see at least the pinout of the mainboard lvds out, by that one can judge if the video out is splitted in 2 half screens or not like all HD-FullHD tvs..

Glad you fixed the tv it would be nice for future readers too know what board fixed the issue but its your own choice if you risk swapping boards around and possibly causing further issues.

Half picture unlikely to be caused by a power board fault. So you could probably rule that out.

T-con/main is the difficult one. Pretty unlikely for either to damage each other, but small chance.

not sure that I would do that just yet. IF I recall, earlier in your thread, you replaced a tcon and "post replacement", the set worked for "5 minutes" and then you were back to "half / half". I assume now that you have checked out the functions in terms of remote and such... inputs, etc. to see that they are working normally.

I would think a bit more about what "setup" is what... since some of these didn't work with the other thread. Maybe its more of a "initialization" issue than anything... my first guess is some form of eprom "issue" either reading or otherwise such that the main gets corrupted and can't readily recover.

PS... glad you got to a working set.

hi thanks for that guys everything appears to be working fine now on this tv including all remote functions
yes when I replaced the tcon I think the second time it did work for a short while then went bad again, so not sure if main had killed the replacement tcon
I would love to know which board caused the fault but am reluctant to risk damaging these replacement boards by mix and matching

My thought is replacing T con is a temporary fix. Main board maybe sending too much voltage or over driving data signals into one side of the T con. So inevitably mainboard root cause. Just a thought.

Especially after hitting the main board cause different variations on that side of the screen makes me think a drifting resistor to the T con from the maid board might be in order

Glad to see it's working now!

Tcon input signals are not generated by any other than mainboard, only SDA returns back to mainboard but dont affect image, so to be safe change first tcon...
