Did you lose both sound and picture at the same time ?
If you press the INPUT button repeatedly on the remote to get through the inputs until you get where the cable or satellite box might be connected , can you find sound ?
This is quite important here to know if the tv can still give sound , it would mean the difference between a defective main or t-con board
By the way
Did you have in mind to look into repairing this yourself or simply would like to have an idea of what is involved and the costs of repair ?
O.k then this is good news , this means you have a defective t-con board that cost some $60 to buy
Give me a minute for the details

This is Plug&Play ,no solder or adjustments and if you are handy with a screwdriver and can remove the back cover then you can do this yourself, no special tools required.
Screws and plugs is all
If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $250 to $300 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .
Any questions on this ?If not for now then PLEASE DO RATE , it doesn`t cost you anything more and I get paid for my time.
