Samsung TV vertical colored lines always there
Curious if anyone can guess if this is the panel or TCON board, I've taken the thing apart and re-seated all the cables.
From everything I've seen on here and other places vertical lines usually indicates a board issue not a panel issue, the TV is from like 2016 not very old no color, brightness or contrast settings seem to change anything about the lines.
The lines go completely from top to bottom though they're not visible when the panel is on darker colors.
Tapping on the main board near the hdmi/usb seems to have 0 impact, at this point I'm assuming the panel is damaged but maybe someone here knows better than me…
I'm not too big on electronics and don't have a multimeter or voltage tester around to check power but willing to give replacing the board a shot, any answers are appreciated.
Most of the lines are in the center but there appears to be a few off to the left as well, I'm back and fourth with myself about it being a board or the panel at this point.
Is this a good question?
