OK, I was unaware of that, this kind of problem mostly occurs due to failing power supply board that doesn't provide stable volts to other boards on the TV and sometimes the ZSUS board can cause similar symptoms, it needs to replace the power supply board as first thing to resolve the problem, please click the following link to view power supply board image and part number if you're looking to attempt to repair the TV 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
