It appears the TV has had a major component failure and from what I can tell there are no user level tasks to run to try and resolve the problem.

My advise is to take the TV to a TV repair professional.

20 minutes worked then it just went black


Not a Solution but may help! Honestly more info is needed so We can narrow your problem down. Lets start with this. Note I havent looked up the manual for your model but This should help. Mostly Standard. Like traffic lights.

First, Locate your power Led, Note Color of Led. Red?(off) Green/Blue (on)Yellow (Standby). If you have a manual handy the Troubleshooting section describes these and what they mean.

1) If no power led is lit then, its either your power receptacle,(highly unlikely) fuse on power supply or power supply. Needs service.
2) If there is a power light. Note the color and if the led changes color or blinks after you hit the power button. ALSO,
B) Does the screen stay black, does it flash. or nothing happens? Note any changes in the led power light color and note it down.
If there is power and you still have no light, could be any of your boards. But we need to first verify power.

Hope this helps. Will
