ok..thanks for that, as it is completely dead and as you have already tried to leave it unplugged for a while... I believe it is the power supply board that is bad and will need replacement, a new board will cost around £60...if you can do this yourself then take the back off and remove the board, replace it with a new one...if not then it might cost around £180 including labor.____________________________________________________________________________________________________If you have further questions I will be pleased to assist you..Please remember to RATE my answer Excellent or Good Service when you are satisfied....Thanks

Is this effectively the fuse to the TV? What would cause it to fail?
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 2 years ago.
The fuse in this model is located on the power board, so either it is the fuse that has blown due to power surge or another component on that board might have failed causing this issue...recommended is to replace the board completely.
