So, my Samsung LCD TV decided go green vertical lines.
It's an older model. Probably maybe almost 10 yrs.

Any idea if it's repairable? Getting the parts and try to do it myself.

The model number is LN46C630

THANKS.

Im sorry to say that modern televisions are considered venerable if they make it to 10 years. You should probably buy a new one. The panel (if you can find one) will cost more than the thing is actually worth.

That's the problem with modern TV. Not made to last.
But it's a good idea if we all watched less TV.

I did some research and some folks said there's circuit boards and on that circuit board, there could be a couple of things that can be replaced.

Generally it's not the screen.

Dunno I had a panel replaced by Samsung and everything came with the panel. The main board and all was part of the unit. All that remains of the original set are the speakers and a few connections to the main board. Basically the panel is the actual tv minus the bezel, VESA mount, power supply and some connectors.

Not sure how each TV is built though. Mine definitely wasn’t as old anyway.

I ordered a new Tcon board and that didn't solve my problem.
Could it be the main board?
