If the inverter board is bad, I would suggest that you replace the whole board unless you have a SMD (Surface Mounted Device) rework station, and a background in electronics. I have worked on TVs where people have tried to remove SMDs and it never is an easy thing to do, so I would again suggest that you replace the whole board, because all of the components are SMDs.
Now as to your question, I have seen on these sets the majority of the time it is a driver transistor that goes bad.
I hope this helps,

It is neither. Your inverters do not control your picture color. All they do is power the back-lights. If your color is going out, odds are it is in your main board.
