Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Still there?
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 11 months ago

TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 11 months ago

OK, it is backlight system failure problem, sorry for this news.

Either power supply board or backlight LEDs inside screen are not working and causing the issue, some times main board of TV could also be defective. Since I do not have your TV model number so unable to pin point the bad part/ board.

It needs further troubleshooting inside TV to determine what board/ part is bad to get it replaced that will fix the problem, I'm sorry it is not any wrong setting/ reset issue but it is hardware related failure that needs defective board replacement in TV.

If you are not comfortable working on it yourself then you may please use following link to get list of TV repair shops in area which will help to get repair quote...

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.
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.
