How handy are you? If you are somewhat handy just order a digitizer assembly off eBay and replace it. It’s only a few small screws to remove and a couple of ribbon cables to unhook and reconnect to swap it out

This is not true. The “service only” USB port can be used for watching movies, viewing photos or text documents. I was shocked to find a hidden menu that I cannot access using the provided rca remote control. I have old android box which I was using for its USB port and it just so happens that the “info” button opens up the secret menu. Once open I have to use the provided rca remote control to navigate. It actually reads more file types than a Sony tv that has USB port as a marketed feature. It made this RCA 39” RLDRD3956A worth the $189 CDN Walmart was selling it for.
To hell with these companies blocking out features so they can market them on more expensive TVs. Effff these crooks. Never believe the lies Specialistal.

Sounds like a definite power supply issue, if you open the TV, there is likely a bulging capacitor on the power supply. Even if not a obvious capacitor problem, the Power board is likely the culprit.

I'd suggest trying to get the repair done outside of a electronic repair shop, they would likely charge upwards $400 for replacing the power supply in most TV

Can buy new one on many websites, or used on ebay.
at Shopjimmy.com you can search based on board #, and will give you list of compatible power boards, as well as a list of any other TV's that use the same power board, that will give you more options as far as finding a cheaper or even a used replacement to keep your costs to a minimum
make sure you buy based on the part # listed on the board, and not by the model number of your TV, as there are usually many sub-models that all have different interior parts, and most are not compatible with each other.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Chances are you have backlight issues, I believe this set only has one strip down the middle of the TV with 13 lamps in it, if one is shorted it shuts down the power supply LED driver section, and I'm guessing this is what is happening
