Question about Sharp Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Sharp LC- 50LB261U. Based off videos I almost 100% that my TV needs a new LED driver. When does a TV also require LED strip replacement? Would only part of the TV show up if it did? Just wondering before I buy a LED driver. The screen is black, but I can see the menu with the flashlight test. Thanks for any help.

Going to need more information to help much, what do the various power board rails look like?...are they all good?

Going by the fact this set has had a lot of main board failures I'd lean towards that board but its just a guess without knowing some voltage measurements

You need a remote, but just try disconnecting it from the mains. That might get rid of the lock symbol. The blue hue is a fault and you need a television engineer or a new television.

I don't have a service manual for that set so I'm only able to help on a limited basis...Have you tried the flashlight test?...if the backlights are out then it could be a backlight driver board if it has one? or defective LEDs. See what you have for voltage going into the panel LED's
