Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Dan, and I look forward to assisting you today. Try this please.

First, locate the power button on the TV. Unplug the TV from your power source, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and release. Let the TV sit for several minutes then reconnect the power and see if that resolves the issue.
