Hello and sorry you're having problems. This is a lockup of the Mainboard of the TV, and in some cases can be reset, and others requires replacement of this board. Did this issue occur after a storm or power outage?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
