Thanks, ***** ***** it

This kind of problem occurs due to corrupted firmware of TV that is why main board doesn't boot up fully.

Lets try easy thing first that might help, disconnect TV power cord from power outlet for 10 minutes to reset the TV, replug back in and check.

If problem still persist then you would need to replace main board of TV that is available around $65 at following supplier if you have plan to replace it by yourself..

OK, yes it would be main board internal failure that will be replaced to get the TV back in business.
