Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem , a few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;

Expert:  Jack replied 2 months ago.

What is the tv doing now if anything ?
Is there a light or blinking light at the front , clicking sound from inside when you plug in the power cord or try to turn it on ?
Or completely dead no activity whatsoever ?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Completely dead. Every now and again the green light on the front will come on like it is powering up but it goes right out.
Expert:  Jack replied 2 months ago.

O.k then we could say that it does have some activity ,at times anyway .

Give me a minute please

Expert:  Jack replied 2 months ago.

This definitely does not look good for the TV's power board and for a tv this size the only way I can see this being worth the repair would be to replace that board yourself .

Here is a link where you can see the various versions of power supplies for this model and you would have to first match yours by part number written on it , take a look ;

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It is what I thought.
Expert:  Jack replied 2 months ago.

As you will see , 3 of them are below $25 and that would be worth it if yours is one of those , other wise the 4th is $51 and not in stock there but could easily be found
