The power board has definitely failed. Sounds like a short that could be causing the cracklin sound.

Hisense TV: Dim pic. 2 wks later the pic just went out. Still had sound and could only see the pic when lights were off. Now the TV won't turn on. No sound. No back lights.

More than likely you ruined the HDMI circuit. Over twice the required voltage is never good.

Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. 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.
