It's probably a loose flex cable inside. Look on the web and find someone near you
Have a service tech check it inside for you

It can be that the 12/24vdc power supply go into shut down mode due to short circuits in the backlight inverter board. You need to check the output voltages of the power supply with and without the backlight inverter board connected to the power supply.

I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.
