The T-con is not part of the panel on this model.

I don't know how many of these you have had in your shop, but that is deffinatly a T-con issue. I have yet to have to replace a panel for that, unless the T-con was not available. Now if it was only effecting part of the display then yes I would agree with you, because that would be a Tab issue.
