Sounds like a leaking Capacitor or damaged resistor on the circuit board.

I found the solution!

With the remote, press the Guide button. This should bring up the Guide Plus+ screen. Press the right arrow to move the cursor all the way to set up and it will ask, "What would you like to do?" Arrow down to "Review Options" and press OK.
The first question is, "Guide Plus+ System Auto Display? On / Off"
Arrow down to Off and press OK.

I would check the power supply for bulged or blown caps. I am unsure of the model you have as the title says 32" and you say it's a 55".

The Television is looking for SVIDEO, which is a separate standard. Since SVIDEO does not provide Audio, it uses RCA audio cables. Try switching to a Video in or AV IN setting.

Contact the cable provider to know about the signal type they are transiting by it. If it is digital type, you must ahve a set top box to convert it to analogue signals, which your TV can process. It sounds so.

The chassis used in this series had many problems that were caused by bad solder connections to the metal shield around the tuner. Picture shrinking or moving vertically was a common effect. If no component failures have occurred, resoldering the bad spots will probably fix your TV. Unfortunately, this repair should be done by a professional because it's very easy to do real damage to the circuit board trying to make the repair. This page has information about the problem and its repair, but it's meant for service technicians and is rather technical. Some other sites have pictures of the areas that need to be repaired and more basic information, but it's still not something you should try without substantial experience. If you want to keep this TV you should probably call a TV shop in your area and see what a repair might cost. When I worked in a shop we charged around $70, but it's been almost ten years now and I have no clue what today's rates are.

Several things can cause a no-start condition. The EEPROM is my first concern. But before you even try to replace it you will have to resolder the Tuner on board. If you can pull the board out of this TV safely, do so. Where the RF connection is, this is the tuner. The tuner is built into the board, you cannot remove the tuner.Unsolder the bottom shield of the tuner. You will take the cover off and find about fifteen area to resolder. You must inspect very close to find these. The grounds that grasp the tuner cover will need resoldered, you can see where the solder is cracked. There will also be center pins in this area that will need resoldering as well. It will require lots of patience and skill to do this soldering. You do not want to burn the the PC traces as you will destroy this TV. After you rsolder and replace the tuner shield, then you may attempt to replace the EEPROM. The EEPROM location is U3201V. You will have to give me a Chassis number to find the correct EEPROM part. Other problems in the start up may be that the switch mode regulator will need resoldered. Location is U4101V.There are eleven pins to inspect. Also any radial capacitors in this are may be weak and may need replace. Please check these. I cannot remember for sure the values or location of these capacitors. I think one was 63 volt 10MF, this is known as the startup cap. Another cap was a 200 volt at about 2.2Mf. These are radial electrolytic capacitors. They are near the regulator I mentioned. Well these are very good leads for repair. I could go on and on.Seems complicated and, is if you have not worked on this model. You must have patience and skill to do this. My first concern would be to resolder the tuner. See what happens. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support.
