OP, the best method is to find another TV and start swapping. Like I said, you can have multiple problems at the moment.
But you can try the following.
Put everything back, just disconnect the cable between main board and T-con. BTW, make sure the cable is not broken.
Find power supply connection to T-Con and connect it by single wire.
Turn TV on. If panel is cycling through red, green, blue solid colors, then panel should be good.

I actually asked Nick about that color test and he's not sure whether this model has that function to begin with. Not that it doesn't, just not sure.

Currently nothing happens when I disconnect both cables between main and t-con. However if I don't power the t-con, then I get 5 red flashes on the indicator LED. Would that happen if the board was bad too, indicating that both boards are good?

Also read this in a Sony training manual:

One trick to check most TCONS for functionality is to loosen the LVDS connector at the TCON (as shown In Figure 4-3) while the unit is turned on. Handle the LVDS connector with care and be certain to fully release the lock tabs. Gently rock the cable in and out of the connector while observing the screen for any response. Depending on the chassis, the symptoms of the screen may be gentle white flashes, intermittent colored lines, or a screen full of random patterns. The idea at this point is to provoke some kind of response on the screen. TCON boards that have failed will not usually generate any type of response on the screen.

Tried that last night and did not see any response at all. What are the odds that my original t-con AND the new one I just got are both bad and the panel is actually fine?

Aww c'mon guys, this definitely isn't helping me fix my TV. I get excited when I see replies in my thread only to end up seeing this crap...can we please get back to what's important? You don't need to speak to one another anymore if you don't want to, but would be great if you'd reply to me.
