I had the same problem. I replaced 14 capacitors on the Power Supply board. I used Panasonic series FC from DigiKey. If you see any capacitors that are swollen or have any substance oozing out for sure replace them. My set had lots of the brands that are known to have problems so I replaced all of them even though I could see no obvious swelling etc. Make sure you carefully label the connectors etc when you disassemble the unit.

I had a similar problem and got a TV repair man to fix it for real cheap. The whole fixing took less then 30 min and he goes to your house to fix the TV. He fixed it for an excellent price that left us astonished. He lives in NY. Email me if anyone needs his contact information. You wont be disappointed.

it probablt needs power supply capacitors, if you can take it apart and inspect the power supply, the bad capacitors usually are expanded and have a bulge at the top, you would need to solder these parts in, so some skill is required.

Testimonial: "You were right. It was blown 1000uf caps. Great job. Thank you very much"
You have either failed 24vdc power supply section or the bad back lights inverter board is out.
