Since unplugging the power cord did not help, unfortunately there is not going to be any easy reset/fix. The Tv has an internal failure and the back panel needs to come off, checks need to be performed, then parts ordered and installed. If you have tools and want to DIY then REPLY back here and I will be happy to help.
If you don't feel comfortable with this kind of thing, you would need to call a repair shop which will end up costing over $300 (labor is very expensive). Honestly if you can't DIY, you should really consider not having this tv repaired and just putting all that money into a new tv.
I know this must be upsetting and you might be thinking this answer was of no help to you, I assure you the advice I've given you is well worth it considering the time and money you would have spent using a local repair shop because they will collect a non-refundable diagnostic fee up front of $100-$135 and won't ever offer the DIY option that I have.
Before you go any further, please be sure to take a moment right now to click the positive rating so that I get credit for helping you today. Doing so does not close the question or prevent us from continuing our conversation here. My livelihood truly depends on your positive rating.
Please do not click bad-poor rating if you are unhappy. Doing that destroys my standing here as a professional and does not issue you a refund. Instead REPLY back here.
Thank you,
Mike
