Hello

Did it quit while watching it or simply would not come on today ?
Any electrical storm or power blackout in your area prior to this ?

Here is something for you to try ;
Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.
Although i do not expect much out of this procedure , it has to be done to confirm that this problem can be cleared or not with a reset.
If that does not do it then we are looking at internal problems with the tv.

let me know how that goes.

I turned it off when I was done watching and in the morning it started turning off on it's own. No storms and plugged into surge protector

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

Yes that is why I asked you to try it

Did you have in mind to look into repairing this yourself ?

have found replacement boards on ebay
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Need as to which board might be causing the issue
Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

The most likely suspect here at 90% would be the power board

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.
