I got a Vizio E600i-b3 from work for free because it was broken. The colors were off and I figured I could fix it. When I got it home, to my surprise, it worked fine. After a week the color issue returned. I googled around for solutions and found it could be the tcon board. I ordered one from shopjimmy.com. While I waited I went ahead and took the TV apart to get ready for the new board. I read about making sure the cables were seated correctly, but none of that helped. At one point I didn't realize the tv was plugged in while I was removing the ribbon cables on the tcon board. There is now a vertical box on the left side of the TV. The new tcon did fix the color issue, but I get the vertical box with either of the tcon board installed. My fear is that I fried part of the panel while messing with the ribbon cables. What are your alls thoughts? Pictures below.

I was thinking of ordering the full repair kit from shopjimmmy.com which includes the power, control, and tcon boards. I wanted to see what your alls thought were before I spent $60 on it.
