Default 32" LCD Element TV Problems - can anyone diagnose based on these pics?

32" LCD Element (FLX-3220F) TV Problems - can anyone diagnose based on these pics? Much thanks in advance :-)

Basically, when I turn on tv I just get these vertical white lines on the far right of the screen, and if I try to cycle through the various input settings, the lines change in number, or thickness, and I even get some blue in the background as well. All the while, there is a creeping cloudy black smoke-looking thing morphing around the screen. The screen itself is not damaged (or at least I don't think it is).

Any wisdom?

Thanks so much!

Yikes! Do you still have a warranty on it? I have to say something is wrong with the mother board.

Yeah, because you said you cycle through each input there is most definitely something wrong with the hardware in the tv. Without a warranty it might be time to look for a new tv.

Yep it seems like LCD is in need of warranty service.

oh, yes, it is definitely hardware problem, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me perhaps if they think it looks like a particular problem...say, with the LCD Controller Board perhaps?

My friend that is a Circuit City house brand tv and I hate to say it but, if you don't have a warranty. You may have to go tv shopping!! I think Kmart sells those tvs. If you have a extended warranty just call the number and they will do the rest!!

Looks like the main/video board to me as well but doesn't really matter. That thing is fried. So unless the warranty is still valid on it, that thing is a boat anchor. Not worth getting parts and trying to fix it IMO. You can now get a name brand 32'' LCD for about the price it would cost to fix that thing most likely. And if you try fixing it yourself, that usually voids the warranty on the part if you are not a certified repair person. So if no warranty, I would go the route of a new, bigger name brand TV.

The mainboard is the problem here, the mainboard is responsible for everything on screen. It's one of the more common things that fail in flat panels these days.
