Sounds like it started "Protection Mode" because of a failed electronic part inside the TV. When this happens, the TV will keep turning itself OFF or will not turn ON at all. This keeps the other part inside from being damaged. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The common part to go bad for flat panel screens circuit board that powers the screen. Most manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.
You have a few choices:
1. You can again try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, schematics, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15 by searching on the internet with the part number.
4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

It sounds like you have a logic board problem. It is easy to fix open up your tv on the back and the logic board should be covered with a small metal plate unscrew the it, it uses small screws get the number of that board an order it through guytvparts.com is the cheapest

Unplug it from the wall, wait 2 minutes and plug it back in. if problem still exists, its probably the main pcb.

Steve, that was awesome. Thanks a bunch. I already have the tools and I can get the solder easy enough. Thanks a again. I went to Best Buy this weekend and all they could say is that the entire board would need to be replace and that they really recommended a new tv as the cost for the new board would be as much as a new TV.... :( typical of them!
