Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions ;
Is the tv turning on at all and then cuts off while playing or it just flickers on/off constantly ?
Did this problem happen all of sudden or gradually got worse over the last few days/weeks ?

What you described is a typical power supply circuit problem and I would have a question for you on that ; How do you want to proceed from here ?Look into this yourself or the repair shop ?Let me know and i will help you along if you wish to look into repairing this yourself ,otherwise i will give you the details and costs you could expect.
