Usually cheaper to buy another board as individual parts are not sold--be aware the burning may be a issue elsewhere--you may replace the board and have it instantly burn up also---the Y board goes directly to the panel and it could be the real problem---fatal if it is.

Try removing and re-seating the ribbon cables, sometimes they don't make proper contact, just grip the ribbon top.

If not, take it to a service engineer. The 'let's see if replacing this fixes it' idea is a very expensive way to repair televisions. Many replacement boards that you buy are from stripped machines and may be faulty when you get them. Only dealers can return them. You need to be able to diagnose at component level. The course is 2 years full time education

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

If none of the bluray movies playing then your BD optical has failed. Get a technician to check the unit phisically.
