The A board part # in my TV matches a VT60- TNPH1043UB

But what you say sort of makes sense as well- as a 65ZT60 control board has the same board layout and plug as mine.just with gold connections. Whether or not it would work in my case I do not know.

None of the board diagrams or other board part #'s match anything on any of the other sets though which is really weird. And I can't find a part # on the panel itself- does anyone know where it *should* be located?

what is the exact part number for the "A" board you tried, including the suffix (2 letters on the card) see pic

I received a Pm asking me to try to turn it on with the fans disconnected. So I did.

It gave me an error message that it knew there was a problem with the fans and would shut down- but it stayed on long enough for me to get into the menu and see that there were indeed now the THX modes, something called brilliance mode and something called EBU mode.

This makes me curious if the 65ZT60 board that has the proper fan plug would work?? Uggh.. should I risk more money spent?

Well the other possibility might be that the fan(s) you have were prototypes too, with different connector(s).

It is not face down on the floor. It is face down, on a clean soft blanket on my coffee table. I don't use it on the original stand, I use a tower mount which bolts to the back of the TV requiring it to be dismounted to remove the back. I suppose I could mount it back onto the stand before taking the back off, but that would certainly make it more awkward to work on it.

Rent a van and take him up on his offer. UHaul and other companies sell flat panel TV boxes. You could be done with it.

Euro 60" ZT60:



It's a bit hard to say, but you might not actually be far off having a fully functional ZT60, albeit slightly odd with an extra fan?

Honestly, I don't know what to make of this. It is a very unusual situation, that's for sure.

I don't suppose you could share any other part numbers with us? It seems like an interesting puzzle to try and solve.

It's a bit hard to see on my phone, but flipping back and forth between pictures of your TV and the Euro ZT, it really does like quite similar apart from the extra fan and the fan wiring arrangement.

As you now know, these sets have a failsafe mechanism to prevent full operation without working fans. It should not be that difficult to get some fans working, though.

Looking at the two photos, the fan wires on yours connect to the (old?) A board on the upper left side. On the Euro A board they connect on the left upper side.

This is from Lounger's 65 ZT pic and looks like your arrangement:



This from the 60 ZT60E:



This is the A board you apparently ordered:



This is the 65" A board:



I'm thinking maybe the fan wire socket on the 65" mainboard is wider because it has more fan wires to connect to? And it looks like the incoming wires plus connector terminating those wires is potentially replaceable? Could you hook up just two fans to the new A board?

Is it 3 pins per fan at the mainboard socket?

Thanks powerdubs. Could you perhaps pm a link to the document from which that parts table comes from?

By the way: if you put the top numbers into Google, they do come up as parts on ebay described as being for the 60ZT60.

I'm struggling a bit on the phone with the images, but will hopefully get on the computer later.

Cheers.
