Do you have power to the tv? When you say all parts are giving you a reading what parts? Need to check Fusistor looks like a rectangle sand stone that will have 5 or 10 ohm markings on it. Next check rectifiers, look like resistors except black w/band on one end. Should only read in one direction if it reads the same on both sides probably bad. When I say read on one side You will take your multimeter on ohms and put positive one side and negative on the other take note of ohm reading, then reverse the leads and see what that reading is. If same it is bad.

Sinotec tv model: stlcd-40kc70 rc j36 no power

Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Hi, while i was watching my Sinotec TV, it just switched off by itself. For a moment i thought it was the power that tripped but i was wrong. I tried to plug it on different endpoints but still not...

Yes, Look up your TV Model Number, then youtube assembly and disassembly instructions to replace LCD Inverter and/or Power inverter.
On Flat panel televisions its usually a standard power inverter, sometimes smaller LCD inverters though.
a relatively cheap replacement part and a job you could do yourself to save yourself a few hundred dollars.
