There's a fix

I upon many LG electronic users have the same issue with my LG 65uh5500 led tv. The issue being no power besides the initial red power light is on, press it and the screen powers up really bright with the LG logo then shuts off with either a solid, or flashing red led light. Well Ultimately The company makes it almost impossible to determine what the cause of the problem is I picked up ATV for $35 yesterday with this issue thinking It was just an ordinary issue such as a power supply main board or whatever upon diagnosing but what I found with researching online was a lot of people are having this issue right around this time about 2 years after they bought this set if not even less I guess it would depend on usage now there's plenty of other things that can go wrong you could always have a bed power supplies hope definitely test with a multi meter and determine what is the cause but more than likely its the back lighting led strips inside the tv I am going to make a small YouTube video and I also have a few pictures I can post in which I'm going to copy and paste this answer on too many different forums to let more people know that there is a fix I did mine last night by swapping a new led strip in from another tv set just Mounted it and wired everything up as it should be just one single strip and One single LED on that strip is causing it to shut down over and over again and will not power on good luck to the do-it-yourself people LG has made it almost impossible to get inside but as long as you're careful with everything you should be alright take very good care of the screen itself do not bend it do not apply pressure anywhere that is not even otherwise you're going to do all this work for nothing also be very careful of the ribbon cables unfortunately for me I got my TV working and had an amazing picture but I damaged one of the cables in the process in which made the repair a failure but also a success so I can provide a little bit of help
