Thanks for the info, it seems there are few capacitors have become bad/ failed due to aging on power supply and/or sustain boards of TV and replacement of bad capacitors will fix the issue in TV.
I'm afraid it is not any wrong setting or reset issue but a hardware related problem, a capacitor is an electronic part utilized widely in circuit boards that tends to go bad after few years of service, replacement of bad capacitors need good soldering work with proper tools and expertise.
It needs to remove back cover of TV and visual check of capacitors to find out which one has top puffed, swollen or leaky/ liquid on its base to mark it as bad and replace it with same rating written on it. If you're uncomfortable working on it yourself then local TV repair shop will do it for you but it may cost you good money like $300 plus.
I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective parts replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask.
