The LVDS cable is loose at the T_CON side. Simple fix. Take the back of of your set. It is the cable on the top middle that has a whole bunch of little twisted wires. With the set off take out the connector and the plug it back in tight. Turn on set and you should be back to normal.

No. There no seperate fuse for backlighting.

Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

This is simple: set in the closed caption menu (some cable boxes also have it) called TEXT. Look in the menu and turn it off first in the set and also in the box used if used for signal.

Odd feature and never really took off--designed so some channels like PBS etc could broadcast text.

No, this is a peer to peer help site, people like you and me helping others because we can. All 'Experts' are unpaid and provide a free service. If you want trained Gemini technicians, you need to go to their website and click support.

I do have extensive knowledge of PA equipment as I have been a manager of a number of local authority halls with PA equipment that I installed, serviced and looked after some of the biggest bands on the planet.

Hello there, first of all, check all your cables and connections, if there is a loose cable it may be the cause of your problem. Other possible causes may be inside the screen itself or the main board. If it is the panel or screen problem or the board problem a well trained technician should deal with it.
