FYI if this is more then a few caps or single part replacement that are under $30 probably not worth repair. I am seeing $200 dollars to have fixed by professional. I can buy a new LED set for $150 Is there a simple cheap trick / part that may fix it that is what I am looking for. Thanks Matt

you may try to replace the power board and see if that helps this link will take you to the part that will help but you will need to look at the power board of the set and match it up to make shore its the right one https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rca-Viore-LJ44-00188A-Power-Supply-Board-PSPF421501C-42PA30RQ/192249082060?hash=item2cc2f030cc:g:vjwAAOSwqVBZam~1
