Default Re: Panasonic TH-50AS700 - Can I rely on LED tester results?

I tested LEDs without opening the case by giving supply of a Chinese LED tester via a ribbon cable. all inputs yields the same voltage. Does that say all LED strips are good?
Does it stay on longer if you reduce backlights to 50% or less?
The LED tester you have probably puts out 30mA not in the hundreds as in operation in TV.
What inspection and Voltage testing have you done when TV works and when it does not work?
Can we see the pictures of the whole backside of the TV showing all the boards so we can see what we are dealing with?
