The inverter is what powers the flourescent tube lights (Back Lights) so you can see the screen image. As a LCD panels picture is very very dark it needs the lights behind it for the image to be able to be seen. The inverter is the "power supply" for those backlights.

What you have is an led tv . And the inverter for the back light led is there in the main board (mother board.) of the tv. Its no a separate board.
The the Log board you see is the TCON board which drives the led panel.
If you wish replace the inverter the you have to bay new mother board for you tv. In the model you have Almost every thing is integrated to the mother board like power supply ,back light inverter board the cpu section.

Check for 24 volts on the main power supply board at the paired multipin connectors. Black and Red wires. You only need to take one measurement as they all tie to the same track underneath. If you have 24 volts there, look at the inverter board. Check the 8 amp fuses near where the multiwire connector attaches to the inverter board. If they check okay, check the electrolytic capacitors. If they show any singof bulging, replace them with electrolytics capable of handling high ripple current. The ones from Radio Shack are a gamble only because of the way they source their parts- in general purpose applications, those are okay; inverters are not general purpose.

If you do not have 24 volts, check the capacitors for bulging. Flip the board over and look for potentially faulty solder joints- many will look questionable- reflow them and add just a little solder for heat transfer.

If the caps on the inverter failed and the set has several thousands of hours, you might consdier changing the CCFL lamps as well.

There are only two things that can cause this problem -inverter and T-con. Since you have already replaced the inverter, it can be nothing other than the T-CON or LCD controller. Replacing the same should resolve the problem. On a side note the inverter/T-Con problem can be isolated easily. The purpose of the inverter is only to light up the backlight of the panel. So when it fails you will still have a faint picture that can be seen if you flash a flashlight on the screen. If you would like me to find you the replacement T-con let me know the part number and I will get you the link to the part.
