Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems.

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

These symptoms generally point to a failure in the TV. Specifically the "Mainboard" which is the processor for the set.

However it's worth it to try a hard reset, as sometimes the processor in the TV can simply have locked up.

The first thing you would try, is disconnect the set from power, then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds and release. Then plug the set back in, and also check that the power cord is connected tight at the TV as well. Press power once, and see if the set powers up normally. Try this procedure up to 3 times, and please let me know what happens.

I have done that already with the tv company
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Okay well that is the only user level steps you can use to fix this then and it does indicate a hardware failure.

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

The Mainboard of the TV needs to be replaced. If you are looking to do this yourself, I will pull up a link to the part.

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

There are NO other attempts at a quick fix for this issue, and the part that needs to be replaced is a "plug and play" part (meaning no soldering is needed - only a screwdriver). You can purchase the Mainboard for your set at the link below for $180 if looking to repair this yourself:
