OK if you can't see any visible light at all on the screen the back-lights that illuminate the pixels are down, causes could be power-board or the backlights themselves, you could try a reboot that is unplug from wallpower wait 5 mins replug back in again but I believe at tis point there is an issue with the set likely to be what I just said,if you think you can do work yourself with the set use a meter (volt-ohm) I will be happy to help ?
