Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it. I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.
Please shine a good flashlight on TV screen while it is power On, do you get dim/ faint image inside screen?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No faint image seen
OK, does power light stay On as if TV is On?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes it does
Thanks for the info, one more test will help to diagnose the issue.Does screen stay lit/ show backlight after the LG logo disappear?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no its just a black screen
Thanks for the info. There are two things suspected in TV for this kind of symptoms, either main board isn't working due to internal failure OR few backlight LEDs inside display panel have shorted and causing to shutdown the backlight system that made screen dark. Main board swapping it only option here to verify the bad thing, if new main board doesn't fix the issue then it is bad display panel (screen) which would not be an economical repair unless you got extended warranty when purchased this TV to get the screen replacement under warranty.I trust my input will help you out.
