You should check the Bridge Rectifier, it also may be something else in the power supply, or another board. You should disconnect the power supply from the other boards and try again.

THE DIAGRAM YOU SENT ME DOES NOT MATCH MY TV
Expert:  Jeff the TV Guy replied 4 years ago.
does it have a bridge rectifier?
graphic
have you disconnected it from the other boards?

I tried to get your power supply for an example, but it very similar to all SMPS.

Do you have a DMM?

The picture aside, have you read the rest of my post?

The picture has nothing to do with most of what was said.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I DONT KNOW WHAT A SMPS OR A DMM
Expert:  Jeff the TV Guy replied 4 years ago.
A SMPS is what you have in your TV Switch Mode Power Supply,

A DMM Digital Multi Meter is required to troubleshoot it.

If you do not have a meter, you will need to get one, or refer the repair to a professional.

One thing you can do is disconnect the SMPS from the other boards, this may show you where the problem is, but it is not 100% failsafe.

Please let me know what else I can do to help!
