At first I was waiting for some helpfull suggestions, but none were posted. I then started to blindly test everything my multimeter could test.

The problem ended up being a bad wire in the bundle of wires connecting the HD input board to the screen circuit board located closer to the LCD. Replaced the broken wire, and the picture looks great again.

The good news is that I didn't spend money on parts. I am glad I didn't give up and send it to a repair shop.
