Fault with the main power supply regulator 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 precious time.

Take the batteries out of the remote. If the problem stops, the remote maybe needs cleaning. I don't think it's a Quark in the programming. If you're handy with a soldering iron, look for cold solder points on chips. And any other component.

I would try Ebay or try google to see if you can track down a panel. The panel you need is a M260TWR1 R1. The problem you may find is that it will cost more to replace the screen that what the set is worth.

Sounds like you have a backlight fault. To verify this, turn on the TV, dim the lights in the room. Take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen. If you see a faint picture you have a backlight problem. Do you feel comfortable opening up your set?

The manual for many Element TVs are available from the company's support site: http://www.elementelectronics.com/support/ . They have a couple of different 32" TVs listed in the drop down menu list of model numbers. Which model do you need a manual for? The manual for the ELDFW322 is available near the bottom of http://www.elementelectronics.com/2011/12/eldfw322/?model_number=ELDFW322 .

To print the manual, either open the PDF with Adobe Reader (or a similar program) and print (File > Print) the file to a printer connected to your computer or put the file on a USB flash drive or optical disc and take it to your local print shop.

I hope this helps. Please post a comment with your model number for additional support.
