This is a power supply and/or possibly inverter(s) board bad capacitors. Since the audio is affected it could be both. Be aware that attempting to repair it yourself could cause irreparable damage to your TV.

Since sensor is receiving the signal of other inputs, there is nothing wrong with it. This looks like an incompatibility issue. You may have to retry using the original remote control.

Check and replace its main power regulator board.

The problem could be the inverter board, but it could also be that one or more of the backlanps is drawing too much current thus causing the inverter to fail. backlamps draw more current as they age. Many in the profession also recommend replacing your both the master/slave inverters together in a set!

Hello,

This sounds as if it could be a ballast problem, or a switching power supply transformer problem. Both of these can produce this sound. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician repair this set due to the dangerous voltages and currents that could be present. In my experience with these TV I would have the technician pay special attention to the power supply board and the backlight/inverter section which includes the ballast used to fire the backlight.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

If the same issues comes up with all the inputs then it is possible that the main board/processor encounters with an error and shuts off.
the possibility of a dry connection or a thermal related issue cannot be ruled out. You can remove the panel and use a good ventillation with a blower fan to see if the fault timing changes. If so check for heat on the board to confirm the suspected component.

Maybe the problem is in the monitor source setting. Look for "Source" button and press repeatedly.
