This could be several things. It could be the main board 3850-0042-0150 or the plasma controller board 6871QCH083A.
Depending on what you actually see on the screen it may as well be bad Y sustain board (although less likely).
Unless someone has seen that particular issue in that particular model (or other that share the same deffective component) it will be anyone's guess which is the exact module. They all can be causing what you describe.
Since TV shuts itself in one minute I'm leaning towards the main board.
I'm afraid you'd have to either experiment or bring it to a service center that will either have such a TV and can try or will experiment on your behalf. Just make sure you do not pay for boards they experiment with. I know some of the other TV service shops in our area (and without a doubt elsewhere too) do that.
A TV service center (just as anyone with regular contacts with eBay) can resell incorrectly ordered part and end up losing $10-$20 on it which , if split between customer and technician, I think is completely fair. Just make sure you don't end up paying for a board that was ordered and turned up not the one in fault.

Check the wire that goes from the main board to the actual LCD board. Unplug it and wiggle it around before plugging it back in. The cable is notorious for going bad. If this solves it you should be fine for a while. Eventually you may need to replace the wire. The TCON board is most likely not the culprit in this case.
