Hello First thing to try here is a reboot ;
Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for 5 minutes before you try it again.If that does not do it then we are looking at internal problems with the tv.
let me know how that goes.May be a good idea to do the same with the cable box as well

Your TV's main board is defective then
Cannot find a Canadian supplier for it but I can tell you that to have a shop repaired this at home could cost you around $300 to $350 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .
if i may be frank , considering the age of the tv and the fact that you can get a new 50" tv with all the bells and whistles for around or less than $500 ,I would think twice before investing that kind of money into this one.
I think your money would be better invested in a new tv .
The main board alone is over $150
Let me know if you have other questions
