Here is another picture from the rear, I just checked the manual and it still looks like the same set I post the photo above for. In this picture the fan is unscrewed and pulled out , the fan is held in with about three screws. One screw is on the bottom,
After removing the rear metal bracket then the fan you can into the lamp rear end.
You don't need to remove any fans to jump the wire, just remove the lower fan when installing a new sensor.
The other photo is just a close up right above and in alittle where the fan was removed from.
There is another fan sitting on the light engine just above the lamp rear area.
Thats what the other photo is, the other fan sitting on top with the white and gray wire.
coming out from it, the wire runs into the lamp rear area to the existing thermal sensor and across the back to the circuit board section.
If this is not what your TV looks like let me know because I checked and double checked the model number.
If you want to do it yourself , that is what you need to do.
I can provide limited technical help, I have given you the solution to bring this dead set back to working. Its up to you to find and replace the fuse if you believe me, if not, another tech may be able to assist you instead.
If you are not technically inclined you may do more damage then good. I recommend calling a repairman if you are not 100% confident working inside this TV.
Best of luck
