From what you described , what this 2010 tv needs is a main board part #3655-0122-0150 that cost some $160 if you were to buy and replace it yourself , otherwise you would easily be looking at some $300+ to have it done at home .

Let me know and i will help you along if you wish to look into repairing this yourself

if i may be frank , considering the age of the tv at 6 or 7 years old and the fact that you can get a new 50" tv with all the bells and whistles for around or less than $500 ,I would think twice before investing that kind of money into this one.

I think your money would be better invested in a new tv .
