Hi , I`m JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem.From your description along with the age of the tv and what I know about lg TV's , this certainly looks like your tv is suffering from weak/vented capacitors on the power board and sorry to say but if you are not into repairing this yourself then you could be looking at upwards of $250 in repairs which I would say would be better invested in a new model.Let me know the TV's model number and i will help you along if you wish to look into repairing this yourself .If you need to find repair shops near you then look at the link below and enter your zip code ;www.tvrepairpros.comThis will give you a list of NESDA member repair shops in your area.This list may be limited though and you may find more by simply using the yellow pages or simply google "tv repairs" and the name of your town .You could give a call to different shops in your area to get an idea of their rates , it pays to shop around.Let me know if you have other questions and if not then please do not forget to rate by clicking on the star icons at the top, then click on Submit so i get paid for my time helping you .Also note that it will not close this post , you can come back here at any time if you need further info or help . Thank you
