First, can you remove the TV from the power and wait 10 minutes,
Then connect the power and turn on the TV and tell me if it now functions correctly please.

Hi Richie... just plugged tv back in and switched on but again, just sound no picture :(

Thanks Ann, it confirms the problem
It is the back light for the screen that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to hard restart it.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV to have the light replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
