My TCL was purchased at Abenson in Tagbilaran City Bohol, Philippines in 2019. It is a 55" 4K Android TV, model number 55P8M.

I was happily watching a show about sharks, and all of a sudden, the screen started displaying garbage.

The remote still works, and the sound was working, until I reset the TV.

I would guess that the panel is still good, and it is some kind of driver issue or main board issue.

Does anyone have experience with this type of failure?

Looks like this:

I have a ticket with TCL support, but since it is Chinese New Year, I don't expect to hear from them until after Feb 21. I am out of warranty, but I still want to know what my options are , and if they can point me at probable boards to suspect.

I miss my display. :cry:

Hola, ¿cómo conoces mi modelo de tv?
Tengo el BeyondTV de 50 pulgadas y estoy usando este firmware V8-R851T02-LF1V ... funciona bien pero no sé qué modelo sería el mío.
