Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the TV.

Can you please try unplugging for an extended period of time?

...and then directly plugging into a wall outlet bypassing the powerstrip?
