This is a very common problem. Most likely it is the y upper and lower buffer, and I would change the y main board as well. Here are the part numbers: BN96-02033A,
BN96-02034A and BN96-02216A about 360$ total in parts. Thank you, lee
a4.. there are 2 of them, upper and lower buffer boards.. they control the top and lower half of screen devided horizontally, i have had many run ins with these sets. and usually the buffer boards arent cheap.
they plug into the ysus( y sustain).. its possible your y sustain is blowing the buffer moduals because one of its i.c.'s under the heatsink has popped on ya.. effectively creating a short that blows the buffer boards.
remove the buffer boards, turn tv on... feel the 2 silver heat sinks on that y sustain( beware dont zap urself.. just the tip of your finger on the heatsinks)
you may find that one is cold and one is hot...if so, you need a new y sus and probably to replace the buffer boards the a4 upper and a4 lower.
If you get a new ysus.. plug the a4 upper and lowers into it, look at your picture.. if ur missing the top half the top buffer is blown or lower half the bottom buffer is blown. or..no picture they could both be blown..an easy way to tell if u have no picture to diagnose is..touch the heatsinks that sit over the chips on the buffers..if they are red hot.. they are bad and shorted internally.
Most times with this happens you can repair it by replacing the buffer bds. Sometime the ysus bd is bad and unfortunately the panel can cause this problem. I would say 60% of the time the buffers will correct the problem. I usually replace both at the same time.
