Thanks Alan for the info.
It seems the HDMI processor chip isn't working thus no HDMI input is working,
processor chip is mounted on main board that need to be replaced which will help to resolve the problem.
Required main board is available at following link (please check the part number off of main board in TV)..

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue.
I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
