Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the TV.

Still, the description of "...Light flashes to come on but no pic no sound..." would indicate that the TV has kicked in auto-protect mode likely due to an internal hardware issue.

If so, are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter (and even perhaps a soldering iron)?
