Hello, my name is***** be happy to assist you.
Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.

OK, please grab a good flash light and shine it on TV screen bit closely with some degree while TV is On (getting sound), is there a faint image of program visible inside screen?

Thanks for the info.Unfortunately it is hardware failure and there are two circuit boards suspected in TV, either power supply bard isn't providing voltage to backlight system in screen or the main processor chip has got internal failure which controls backlight system, I would go for main board replacement in TV as first step which will help to resolve the problem.I have found a broken screen TV over ebay for 50 Pounds which contains both boards inside and we can get them to utilize in this TV to get it fixed if you wish to do-it-yourself and TV is no more under warranty... trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.A positive rating to answer would be greatly appreciated, please click on smiley face/star on this page then click submit/finish button so I can get credit on website for my work.
