More likely to have failed power supply module.

You can download the spec of the power supply to get the pinout for voltages checking.

    In your case, Iwould suggest to check the voltage output first to see if you do have the 24vdc output. The power supply cost about $100. To have the TV repair, I will estimate repair bill of $200~300 range if they are willing to try to get parts for you. Most shop do not like to install used parts becuase if it failed they will lose money on repair works. Remove and install the new power supply is easy but you have to make sure it is the power supply first.

The problem of your tv is in the power supply. In order to find the power supply of your tv ,you should follow the ac cord. But first you should unplug the unit and open the back cover of your tv there you will find the power supply, try to check the capacitors, it is cylindrical shape and has a plastic cover. Try to observed if their is a wet mark or oil mark that spread in to the pcb then replace it. But when replacing the capacitor you should observed the polarity of the capacitor and replace it exactly the way you pulled it out.

I do not know the exact value but if you trace out the copper trace from the rectifier output, it should go to the first filter cap and then there will be an inductor and filter cap after that, you can figure out the voltage rating from there. You can get the parts here:
Look here about caps:

Pictures of the power supply will help.
