OK, there are two suspected circuit boards in TV for this trouble, either main board or power supply board has failed. It needs further troubleshooting in TV with multimeter to check output volts of power supply board which will help to determine defective board, if you get any change of volts on PS-ON pin of power supply connector and get 5V, 12V 20V output of power supply board then main board is bad and should be replaced.Please check with following board supplier to get required replacement board if working on it yourself..http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=e550i-b2If you are not comfortable working on it yourself then you may please use following link to get list of TV repair shops in area which will help to get repair quote...http://www.tvrepairpros.com/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.A positive rating to answer would be greatly appreciated, please click on 5 star on this page then click submit/finish button so I can get credit on website for my work.
