John-craig Lynn under any other circumstance I would have set Panel or T-con board but in your case it maybe caused by bad firmware. Let us know which version firmware you used and how you update. Failed updates can be tricky to repair

John-craig Lynn you could try a new t-con board. Get it somewhere that has an easy return policy. Just in case....

I have just cracked the panel trying to move it so looks like I will be phoning home insurance

John-craig Lynn darn! I am sorry it failed. Not to add insult to injury but don't throw your panel away. Consider using it for a great art object. Look at what @rdklinc is doing on here https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/artic.... I've got a few broken ones myself and think that with a universal backlight driver and a decent frame, those may even look good.
