This kind of problem occurs due to failure of scan boards that are known as y-sus and z-sus, mostly y-sustain goes out and some times power supply board also become defective as high volts section fails that provides volts to scan boards. It needs further troubleshooting with multimeter to determine what board is defective to get it replaced.

Please check following board supplier link to see if they can provide required replacement board if you wish to repair the TV yourself as currently thy have out of stock because of this TV age...

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
