This happened recently, there is NO external damage to it, and no one in the house thinks they banged it or leaned on it or anything, but when I try power the TV on, I get backlight, 1/2 second of sound, then it powers itself off (turning black). A minute later it power cycles again but this time with no sound where I get backlight for a second and it cycles off again, and that just keeps repeating until I unplug it. I also noticed in the lower left corner that the backlight shines like through a possible crack and when I took the TV off the wall to check it out closer, it then started with a flickering purple vertical line on that side as well. Question is, is this something I can repair with a board replacement (like power or main board) or does it look like a panel issue and should just be tossed (which is what I'm pretty sure it is)? Thanks for any advice!!
