This is a hardware failure -

Approximately how old is the TV?
Has it been worked on previously?

TV Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 4 months ago

Yes, it is likely that it can be fixed if the fault is not too severe.

Did you recently have any power outages or thunderstorms that may have damaged the TV?
