Your inverter are fried, need to replaced a new one. If you still under warranties asked LG to send you a replacement. Have a nice weekend!

The service menu for this TV may be accessed by holding down the INPUT button on the TV and pressing 2580 on the remote. To navigate the service menu use the arrow keys on the remote. The center Enter button is used to go down into a submenu. The Menu button returns from a submenu. The exit key exits the menu.
There is an option to adjust Over Scan in the Picture settings menu. Set the positions to zero and the size to +100 for both horizontal and vertical. Then set the Sharpness to zero in the Picture Mode menu for each picture mode (optional, but sharpness makes text and sharp lines really ugly if you're using a PC).
I've owned this TV since Feb. 2013 and I've been disgusted with its lack of disable-able overscan and forced to use VGA to get a usable picture. The VGA port finally started going out (flickering colors) and rather than tearing it apart to resolder the VGA connector I tried to find a service manual again. Found one for a different Apex LCD TV but the service code was the same. It's like having a brand new, much better TV now! Overscan is the worst thing the TV industry ever did, it's totally and completely unnecessary on digital, pixel-perfect signals.
It seems that the "backlight" has gone bad. "Backlight" is the device that allows to see the picture in an LCD TV, when they are about to go bad the symptom that you describe is very usual. It depends on the tv manufacturers and model to expect how long the "backlight" is going to last in a tv.You can shop around for a replacement part and try to do it yourself or take it to an especialized technician. Good luck..
I was going to inquire if Foxtel is your cable provider but have established that already.
Judging from a description of their service, you have a convertor associated with Foxtel.
See if you can call up your TV menu (for doing initial setup).
If it shows up your set is probably OK with only the tuner a potential suspect and these are quite reliable in comparison to some of the other subassemblies in our sets, then I would contact your cable provider as it seems the cable box has expired.
If you have any other video source such as a camcorder with video output or a DVD or VCR, try those.
