OK Crotchety Old Man Scott I may have a way to get back at all the rat bastards. I may be able to help you fix your TV yourself. I am a TV tech and have repaired a few of this model with the same issues you have . From the picture of the back it looks like you have a LG model 42LB1DR. The issue with this model is the power supply PC board ( the board on the left hand side ) . You have two options to repair it 1- replace the board ($50.00-$100 bucks) or 2- repair it with a cap kit $20.00 and some soldering if you have the skills. If you opt to replace the board search ebay for part number 6709900017A . changing it is as simple as a taking out a few screws and disconnecting and reconnecting the new board. If you go with option 2 you will have to have some soldering skills or know someone that has soldering skills and some basic electronic knowledge. In short for 20-100 bucks you can give it to the MAN.
