Hello, from your description it does sound like your power supply is bad. If you are competent to do so you can probably replace it yourself. You must remove the back cover and follow the main power cord wires from the receptical to where they connect to the circuit board, this is the power supply board. you should compare the part number to the one you will order to verify it is the right one. You will then unscrew the hold down screws and disconnect wire connections and remove, doing the reverse to reinstall the replacement. If you look on their parts are fairly reasonable but they are not new, they are pulled from working freight damaged or otherwise damaged but salvaged tv's, I have had fairly good luck with their parts. If you preferr you can order a new oem replacement which will be quite a bit more, that will be your decision. Here are a couple of links to power supplied that are listed for your model. Hope this helps. let me know. thank you ----------
