Scrambled screen on all inputs, with sound on the cable

Customer Question

Scrambled screen on all inputs, with sound on the cable channel. Can't see what I'm doing to check other inputs.
JA: What's the model number of your TV? How old is it?
Customer: 10 y/o LG 50 pad plasma
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: Menu is not visible to read, but between flashes I can see where it is.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: About a week, started with the flashing bit on the cable input (composit), but not the pic (HDMI), or the game console (yellow, red, & white rc as
JA: Is there anything else important you think the expert should know?
Customer: No, right now, it's just flashing. Green power light is solid green.
