This chronic problem of a faulty T-Con board is hitting most of the major LED TV manufacturers. With the introduction of the Sharp RUNTK5261TPZG as the new universal T-Con board that be in installed in most LED TVs, repairs just got a bit easier.

The T-Con board (Timing Control Board) controls pixels displayed on screen by connecting to the digital processor on the main board. When it’s defective the result is a screen that is simply unwatchable. The picture may be only partially displayed, have bad colour, be dotted with scrambled pixels, have distracting vertical lines or simply go completely black.

The solution, of course, is to replace the T-Con board. Since the defective T-Con problem is affecting almost all models and makes, each company was using a particular model. Many of these boards were manufactured by Sony who recently released an elegant solution to the problem of compatible T-Con boards Sharpe introduced the Sharp RUNTK5261TPZG — the universal T-Con board.

    question about the RUNTK5261TPZG universal Tcon. this is tagged with the LG 60LS5700/5750 which has the runtk5119tpzz tcon. in fact the pictures in the sony 60 60EX646 tcon replacement look exactly like that tcon. If this is the universal replacement in the sony 60EX646 and vizio 60a3 do you know if also will replace the sharp CPWBX runtk5119tpzz tcon in the LG? thanks ashley

      Hi Ashley,
      It’s the same basic board with with different connectors for the various products. This means the boards are not interchangeable and you need to buy the correct board associated with your TV.

    I am having trouble finding any information regarding if this new t-con board will fit a vizio 701i-a3. The tv used may of the same components as the Vizio E601i-A3 listed above. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know the 701i-a3 uses the RUNTK5261TPZH board but the newer ZG board seems like the more stable option for replacement

      Hu Dylan,
      I believe the DMD board is the same prototype across the board. Texas Instruments is the only manufacturer of this board. But, I’m not an expert. I suggest you join our forum — — where there are a number of people who can answer your question. Must be so frustrating not to be able to use your TV!

    Will this board work as T con board for Samsung UA32F4100ARMXL LED TV,

    • avatar Shelagh McNally says:

      Hi Neeraj,
      No this particular model won’t work on a Samsung. But there are DMD chips available for the same price since essentially it’s the same equipmenet. I would contact Discount Merchant at 800 251 9409 and ask them if they have it in stock. They can probably order it for you. There are tutorial on this site showing you how to replace the chip but Samsung should step up to the plate and have their service people do it. You have to be persistent but they eventually follow through on doing the the repair since it is a manufacturing flaw. Good luck!

    I am having a problem finding a compatable tcon to replace the RUNTK5345TPZZ, RUNTK5345TPZA T CON BOARD.

    i am told by some suppliers that that these other tcon board may not be a correct match.RUNTK5261TPZH ,RUNTK5261TPZE ,RUNTK5261TPZZ

    Can you advise if the universal board will work as a replacement.

    the tv model is sony KDL-60R550A.

    • avatar Shelagh McNally says:

      Hi Lester,
      The specifications have changed for this DMD board. I would suggest contacting Discount Merchant at 1-800-281-8860 and asking if they can source the correct TCON for your particular model. They are the experts in this area.

    Just want to confirm what I understand from the above article, that the RUNTK5261TPZG T-Con Board is a replacement match for the faulty RUNTK5261TPZC T-Con Board in my Vizio E601i-A3.

    • avatar Shelagh McNally says:

      Hi Asuit11,
      It is the universal board but you need to check with the Vizio manufacturer that they used this type of T-Con Board. If your previous TV has the RUNTK5261TPZC T-Con then this one created by Texas Instruments will replace it. You should also check if your manufacturer will cover the cost of replacing the chip. It is a design flaw.
      Hope this help.

    Hello Shelagh,I have a 2014 VIZIO E601i-A3 60-inch 1080p Razor LED Smart HDTV with the RUNTK5261TPZG T-Con but with a broken display, my question is can i replace the broken Vizio display with a 2014 LG 60LB5900 60″ 1080p LED-LCD backlit TV display.. The LGs T-Con part# RUNTK5489TPZA.. The connections are the same.. tyvm

    • avatar Shelagh McNally says:

      Hi Sam,
      Even of the connections are the same, the T-Con boards can be different. I would recommend searching and buying the part by its number not by TV’s model number since different versions of the same model might be using different parts. LG is a different brand from Vizio and that part may not be compatible. I would recommends joining forum where there are experts who know more than me.
