I am happy now to report that my repair seems to be successful, the picture seems fine.
After ordering the replacement T-Con (Timing Control) board via eBay from JK_Parts (aka as the Chengdu Chengxin Micro Technology Co., Ltd., I believe) on 3rd October, the part arrived from China on 25th October, pretty well packed,
I put the TV back together yesterday, without too many problems (most of which were due to my own stupidity). The only serious one was that there was one screw left over after I had replaced the back of the TV set. Eventually I decided it should go in a hole at the middle of the back although I wasn’t altogether sure that was right and didn’t have any photo of that part of the back. It seems happy there now.
My other two problems were more laughable. The first was that the first thing that appeared on the screen once I had attached the TV to my satellite box again was an ISIPRO page to set the available channels. I couldn’t get that to react to the remote. It took me about an hour before it dawned on me that I was using the TV remote, not the satellite box remote I should have been using.
Then, though the picture was fine there was no sound playing over my external amplifier (the internal speakers worked). There is an optical link to the amplifier and I worried I had damaged the cable putting it back. Although I found comments about setting PCM mode, I couldn’t find how to do so on my TV. Eventually I went to bed, to sleep on the problem and hoped for inspiration. I couldn’t sleep and inspiration came - I suddenly realised that, while the TV was out of action, I had changed the source setting on the amplifier and I only had to change that back to TV/SAT for everything to work fine. Oops!
So, all in all, putting the TV back together went well :-)
Thanks again for all the help.
