I have the same model, same problem. It doesn't need an inverter board. If its the same problem as mine was, it is a capacitor. I replaced the capacitor and it has worked fine since. It is a 220uf 450v capacitor on the right side of the top board. Its black and about 1.25" in diameter. It cost me $26.00, much better than the $250-$400 for someone to replace the whole board. Just check capacitor, if its domed or bubbled on top, it is bad. I have pics if you need them....toolbox3@37.com. Or more questions.

    I'm the one who said it was a capacitor problem. Maybe it is but when I replaced the capacitor the tv worked fine for 3 days then the same thing. Guess I was wrong. Sorry

    I replaced the capacitor on my tv and it worked great for only 3 days. Guess that wasn't it...Sorry, back to the drawing board.

    I was wrong it isn't the capacitor. I replaced mine and it worked fine for 3 days then the same thing. Sorry

The power supply pn#860-AZ0-IPOS250H is around 100.00
and the control box is around 90.00

Mind you they are used but taken from good units.

This may work as it appears to work for mine but is a bandaid type fix. I turned my TV on and immediately pointed a fan at the back of the TV and it appears to have solved the problem. I had heard these TVs overheat so I thought why not put a fan on it. I used just a regular fan and pointed towards the control box and my TV has been running for an hour and a half just fine. Previously the TV would last for ten minutes and then go black. So far so good. If anyone tries this, let me know if it works.

open the black plastic panel and the aluminum panel which has 3 screws each in the back of the tv.
look at bottom left corner of top board. to the right of the red led light,
there's these four white small switches. turn the bottom two switches to "on" and tv should be working.

My tv capacitor was not the problem.
I hope this will help everybody.
