Thanks for the info, this kind of problem mostly occurs due to failing capacitors on power supply board of the TV, replacement of bad capacitors (it needs good soldering work with proper tools and expertise) or entire power supply board (it is easy work) will fix the problem.

Please click on the following link to view power supply board image and part number info to search/ google it to get price info if you have a plan to work on it yourself...

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make the decision about this TV repair or invest that money in new replacement TV.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. If you're satisfied, please rate me a 5-star at the top of your page so I can get the credit for my work on the website.
