Okay that is a very well known issue with LG LCD TV's it is a failure with the LED back-light system, it can be repaired but finding a service center that performs that type of a repair may be hard. The LCD screen must be taken a part to replaced the LED lights that have shorted, most service centers will condem the Panel (screen) as too expensive to replace.
