Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it.
I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.

- Does power light on TV blink?

- If so, how many times it blinks between long pauses?

7 times

Thanks for the info, 7 blinks is common error code that indicates failure of sustain board(s) in TV, mostly SC board goes bad and some times SU or SD board also go bad along with SC board, I'm sorry for this news.
