Thanks for the info, it very common problem with this TV chassis that occurs due to failing capacitors on power supply board. Replacement of bad capacitors on power board or entire power board will fix the problem.

Bad capacitors replacement needs good soldering work with proper tools and expertise and entire power board replacement is easy, sort of plug and play type work.

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV.
