Rod Skelly a complete loss of drive data for all RGB information to the right side of the screen. This is sometimes caused by the flat cable connecting the T-con board to the LCD panel coming loose as well as a bad T-con board. For anything more about that it will help if you do as @jayeff suggest. We'll need your exact model number and it will help if we can see what you see. Use the link provided by @jayeff

If this is an older LCD type TV, then it is possible that the backlight on that half has failed. Some of the older TV supplied light from each side. Please post the exact model number of the TV so we can confirm that this is the case or suggest other possibilities. Given the way most T-con boards work, I would not expect this type of symptom from a T-con failure.
