How bad did I break my vizio E551D-A0

Tv is about 1.5 years old. Used very little, maybe 50 hours on it. Was watching it the other day and I saw what looked like dead pixels. After a little time I realized it was debris between the panel and light. My ocd wasn't gonna let that fly. I took the tv apart to clean, sure enough there was contamination that I cleaned out. I didn't pull the panel out or unhook any cables, just tilted the panel back and cleaned. Put it back together and had sound with a lot of pretty colored vertical lines, no picture. I stepped away for 24 hours and dug back into this. I messed with the cables and shifted the panel and now I have a picture with sound. Problem is left half of tv is noticeably darker than right side and on the extreme left side any moving objects leave a blur or slow motion like affect. I tried messing with all the tabs to see if the screen would change, didn't help. Tried messing with the tconn ribbons, didn't help.

Did I mess up my panel or maybe the tconn board??

Turned my tv off, then on now it's back to the colored vertical lines. I didn't touch anything!

Sorry for the tractors but it's all I could find with constant motion. Any idea what's going on?

Hmm. That's weird. When you first mentioned one half of the screen being dark I assumed something with the back light was affected. It's obviously not an issue with the panel if it's coming and going (at least not likely). A component issue of some kind. A vague answer I know but that blur effect on only one section of the panel is just strange to me. I would say it wouldn't be a terrible idea to contact the manufacturer and have them diagnose the issue. I wouldn't mention you opened it up, obviously.

When you say component do you mean something like the tconn board?
