We have pushed the reset button multiple times and unplugged it also
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 month ago.

This is a well known issue and I am afraid it is nothing easy on early models it was capacitors on a digital board on your set being a much later one its a matter of replacing the main-board because the DM module is integral on that board, if you want to pursue replacing this board let me know, I do not know at this point if one is available cost of board $100 plus

You have to get the silver box out of the set its INSIDE the set

Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 month ago.

The back of the set needs to come off.............
