Unfortunately, since unplugging the Tv POWER cord did not work, there is not going to be any easy reset/fix. The Tv has an internal failure and the back panel needs to come off, complex checks need to be performed with a meter, then parts ordered and installed. If that is something you want to attempt then reply back here and I can assist you further.
If you are unable or unwilling to perform any of these procedures then a repair shop should be consulted but I can tell you that diagnosis, parts, and labor will end up costing more than a new 40" Tv and could take a few weeks to get all sorted.
Unless you can actually DIY (with assistance), I would strongly suggest you use the money you saved by coming here first toward a replacement tv rather than going for a repair.
Before you go please take a moment to submit at least a 3 star rating at the top of this page so that I get credit for my work.
keep in mind an in home diagnosis by a local repair shop costs $100-$135 up front. So finding out right away from this online chat whether your tv can be repaired and how much it may cost is well worth it.
Hello, just checking back in to see if you still need help, or perhaps you would like to acknowledge that my time and input has been helpful?
