I found a fix for this problem on another forum, It's caused by some blown capacitors on the main power board. I have a link to the original post, with step by step pictures for replacing the blown capacitors but don't know if it's ok to post it here. The repair cost me £7.49 for 5 capacitors RS part number 526-1109 and about £4.50 of that was for next day postage. I did the job myself in about 15 minutes and I have no experience with a soldering iron (i even had to borrow one). I replaced 3 capacitors, 2 of which looked blown and one which just looked swollen.
Remove the back off your tv, and just take a look at the small array of capacitors near the top right corner of the centrally situated power board. there are 4 identical capacitors rated at 1000uf 10v 105 degrees C. I think the silver capacitor lids should be flat or even slightly concave. The ones I replaced were all slightly convex and 2 of them had a tiny amount of what looked like brown corrosion right in the centre of the caps.
For a few quid I'm sure you could get someone else to do the soldering if you lack confidence.
The original post also linked to a supplier of the main power board for £130. I didn't mind having a go myself because I figured if I fouled up I could always just buy the board.

This is the capicator $1.50. You have to take off the back, sauter off the capicator (you'll see it because it is poking out) and sauter on the new one. I found the fix on this web-site.

if you can do soldering work, replace two 1000uF10v bulging capacitor with 1000uF 16v or 25v in powersupply board. you will save $200.

I would check out the power supply module for bad caps with bulging tops. Check DC voltages at the output connectors, you should have 5, 12, 24V.

Testimonial: "This seems to be a common fault on these tv's. I probably wont attempt to fix myself even though the warranty has ran out. Thanx "
