OK, it wasn't mentioned in initial question though.

Was there any storm/ lightning in area that might have cased the problem in TV?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, I replaced it with another television and it works just fine so its not the power source

Thank you for your help , but i see you dont have anything other than what I've already have done so , thank you for your time,
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

Typing a reply takes little time and there is no way to know what you have already tried unless it is mentioned during discussion and I have to ask for info to troubleshoot the problem as I can't see your TV from here.

Please reply back if you still need assistance.
