Anyone Know about LCD TV solarisation

I think my tv is suffering from this. Seems there are 2 boards which may be the problem and both are replaceable. Trouble is that T-Con boards are about $50 online and the more likely main board is $200 - $300, IF you can get one for a 10yr old LCD. So before I buy a main board I would like to be confident that the fault is the main board. Alternatively $400 gets me a new, cheap tv. I was happy with my Toshiba 42" until the solarisation happened one night.


  • That could cost $350 and no guarantee you will fix it. I think I'd just get a new one... might be able to find a used one locally on gumtree or ebay from someone upgrading

  • What is solarisation?

  • google would be much quicker than me trying to describe it, but it's something to do with the sun

  • I think it's where you have to wear sunglasses indoors.

    This is...

  • Aha

    So that's what was happening to my brain all those years ago...

  • Well said, Seano - couldn't have put it better myself. From my googling, this is more likely to be main board problem than T-conn. The tv is around 10 yrs old (which I believe is the lifespan of an LCD) and the parts may be unavailable. Still it costs nothing to take the cover off and get the board numbers.

    And it's fun too!
