Is this a reasonable fix or should I buy new?

[image|2628444]I've had an LG smart tv for about 8 months. One day I began having strange color Distortions that seem to bleed from certain objects as they pass. It's not an all the time occurrence.  If you look near the pause icon and near Rikers throat you can see it. Most of the time it's colors spilling off moving logos and yellows and greens playing off each other.

I typically noticed during gaming and non animated shows. I've swapped HDMI cables, tried all available ports, done a factory reset, and used different video game consoles. Is there a fix or this tv shot? Thanks.

This is likely an issue with the LCD panel. It may cost more to replace the LCD than the TV is worth.

Matt Khourie color bleed like what your images shows, can be caused by a bad T-Con board or a bad main board as well. I would not yet give up on this. You did not tell us what exact model your TV is so you are a bit on your own researching the main board/T-Con board. Try to get a used one and see if that makes a difference. If you got to buy new get it from a place that has an easy return policy. I am not convinced that this is a panel issue. Possibly but you want to check other things as well.
