most likely its the smsp /deflection board for the shut down
there are some caps in the power supply cp 140 cp120 cp114 look at them and see if there puffed up
they will need to be replaced
this could also be a flyback transformer that has failed or a ribbon connector
this where you will have to look for caps first the trouble shoot through it
then you you can addresse the cmp1 issue but id guess thats the ribbon connector causing that one

No Picture - only sound

I have a TV at work that has been doing the same thing here's how I've been getting it to show a picture:

turn the TV on then quickly change it to an input channel (like front or etc) that doesn't have anything connected to it. Let it sit there for a few minutes, then change it to a regular channel and see if you have a picture.

Child Lock is on and I am second owner of tv with no code

This function will block out the picture and sound of the selected channel or video input.
It can also be used to keep the TV from being viewed for a scheduled time period that you set.
The code to enter the Locks feature is a four digit secret code number. The factory preset code is 0000.
Use the number buttons to select access code.

Use CURSOR G or H to highlight function and then press the SELECT button.
To change the access code number, select Change Access Code. Enter a new four digit key number you prefer.
Select CHANGE ACCESS CODE to change factory preset code (0000) to your preference.
When ENGAGE LOCK is selected, SET CHANNEL LOCK, SET INPUT LOCK, and SET FRONT PANEL LOCK can be set individually.
When SET CHANNEL LOCK is turned on, the picture and sound for the chosen channel will be blocked out.
When SET INPUT LOCK is turned on, the picture and sound for all video inputs and the picture and sound for channels 3, 4 will be
blocked out.
When FRONT PANEL LOCK is turned on, all buttons on the Front Panel will be deactivated, except the Power button.
When TV TIME LOCK is turned on (r TIME LOCK) you can set the BEGIN and END times (CURSOR E) and the TV
cannot be viewed during that time period (Set clock first). Use CURSOR G or H to highlight ONCE (TV will time out one time
only), DAILY (TV will time out every day), WEEKLY - SUN~WEEKLY - MON (TV will time out one time a week) or OFF (to disable
this function).
When MOVIE RATINGS is selected, you can block various types of movies and video tapes based on motion picture ratings. Picturein-
Picture will also be blocked automatically (see page 45).
When TV RATINGS is selected, various types of television programming based on a parental guide ratings will be blocked.
Picture-in-Picture will also be blocked automatically
If you forget your secret code, use the factory code 7777 to erase your key number. This will reset the secret code number back to the
factory preset 0000.
Press EXIT to quit the menu.

Distrorted Picture on all Analog Channels, HDMI and PIP Picture is fine.

Sounds like a bad DLP chip and they will prob end up replacing the light engine in the set most people dont like replacing this part. Hopefully they get you up and running.
