lcd sets use florescent tubes to light the display and, a ballast to power the tubes just like the lights in an office ceiling.
the tubes are called cold cathodes and, the ballasts are called inverter boards. replace your inverter circuit board it connects by wires to the cold cathodes so; isn't hard to find.

SOURCE: Flickering problem with Tv.
There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc. Look for 5vdc, 12vdc, and 24dvc.
Please post back what you find.

you need to check first the power supply board whether the output supply 12-24vdc for the inverter board is stable and not flactuating..you can measure the output voltage with a multitester..you get a voltage output of 12-24 with the inverter board is connected or loaded to the system.be carefull of the high voltage at the inverter board..once the output is stable replace the inverter board or you can measure the output of the inverter be very carefull..the output range upto 500vac.be carefull..if the high voltage is stable replace the lamps...tnx and good luck..
