Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this and I'll do my best to help but need the following info to troubleshoot the problem
- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to the TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?

Just a satellite receiver

OK, following troubleshooting step should be tried as the first thing that might help
- Have you tried to disconnect TV and satellite box power cords from the power outlet for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in, let satellite box reboot that may take several minutes and check?
If not yet, please try it now and reply back with the result

I just want to know if it’s repairable or is it done.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 month ago

If the screen glow/ show backlight or any graphics appear when tuning On TV power then it is repairable

No change
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 month ago

Sorry to hear that, it seems the backlight LEDs failure and replacement of backlight LEDs inside the screen is needed, the screen will take apart for this work that should be done by a TV tech to avoid any damage to the screen

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective LED stripes 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
