If you can get settings menus up reset the tv to factory default. Should it start working autotune it. Ensure it is set to digital output if it is analog/digital. Also check the aerial/antenna installation is properly connected. If there is some display and sound then I suspect the fault is not too serious.

If it is the type that uses a main light bulb (i.e. ''DLP''), it means the bulb is bad.

If it is an LCD (or Plasma), then it is likely a bad power board.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset; and the other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.
