OK this second check involves using a flash-light, get the flash-light and during the fault shine it onto the screen at a 45 degree angle pick up the TV remote and press the menu button do you see the menu below the light?

the tv is in a different room it's down stairs and i can't go up and down the stairs very fast ' i'm 68 years old and i have a bad nee problem
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.

OK I understand , I believe the back-light is going out a common issue with LCD sets its controlled by invertors and its these the power-board and poor grounding that needs to be checked inside the set using a meter, if you think you can handle the work yourself I will be very happy to help otherwise you will need a tech www.tvrepairpros.com will locate a tech in your area
