Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you today. To make sure I don’t miss anything, please give me a minute to review your question.

There is a fuse located on power supply board and it needs to remove back cover of TV to access inside TV to check fuse on power supply board. However, it seems power supply board has got internal short that caused the problem and its not a simple fuse replacement issue and you would need to replace entire pwoer supply board in TV to fix the problem.

I hope these info will help. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. If you're satisfied, please rate me a 5-star at the top of your page so I can get credit of my work on website.
Thank you.

Any idea how much this sort of repair would cost please?

You can expect $250 to $300 repair cost from local TV repair shop. I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV.
