Tv was normal and suddenly the picture started flickering.

This is an indication of out-of-regulation in the power supply section. This is
caused by leaky/dried
electrolytic capacitor in
that section. It will dropped the supply from normal voltage and
will disable the unit. First stage of symptoms warm-up will make itself stable but the it will get worst until the unit will not even power up. Sometimes it has
a bulged/dome at the top but not all, it is better
that you have acapacitor checker/tester to determine its condition. Your unit
will back to normal again if the leaky/dried capacitor is isolated. See sample picture of faulty electrolytic capacitor below.

Also check if your unit is under warranty /extended warranty,
avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free. Don't open
the back panel, this will void the warranty.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
