Expert:  Jack replied 1 month ago.

By the look of it I`m afraid that what your tv has is another case of defective LED strips and this is very common for LG and Samsung TV's , they both use the same trips anyway
Those LED`s are supposed to last a zillion hours but they do not , they are failing all over the place and not only in LG and Samsung

Here is a link to give you an idea what is needed ;

Mind you they don`t have it in stock at this time , these guys can`t keep up with the demand but if you were to look into this yourself then you could sign up there to be notified when back in stock but i must say that this is not an easy job to do and you will have to be comfortable working with electronic circuits , here is a video that shows you how its done , not your model but the same job ;
