There are two circuit boards suspected for this symptoms, either power supply board and/or main board is defective, it needs further troubleshooting inside TV with multimeter to check standby 3.5V DC output of power supply board. If standby 3.5V is available then replace main board of TV and if standby volts are not available then power supply board will be replaced to see if it fix the issue or main board will also be needed to get it replaced because thunderstorm/lightning can damage both boards.

Please click following board supplier link to get required replacement board that would cost $50 and $120..
