You might want to try reseating all of the ribbon connectors that connect to the tcon first, but it sounds like you may have a bad panel(screen) which is probably what made the original tcon die. The only other possibilty would be the backlight inverter board(either the master or slave depending on which side the dark area is on).

This is due to low voltage getting to the Inverter board or the Inverter board on the bad side is not lighting the lamps. Usually bad capacitors or the power supply and the inverter will cause this symptom. You may want to replace both inverters boards on this model, new models have one inverter board for both sides of the backlight.

I would think if SAMSUNG came out to replace the bad caps and the TV is still not working right, I would think they should fix it correctly, may be the person did not do the good quality jobs and left. What does SAMSUNG say about this? The bad power supply could have unstable DC and could have damaged the other boards inside the set. You will need to inspect the power supply yourself, look to see the soldering works are good and everythings are put back together correctly with correct polarity.

Then you need to verify all the DC output voltages before going any further, it will not be an easy job.

Or www.digikey.com just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
