@oldturkey03 I thought you may be interested to hear what happened!

Trying to find/replace the defective part, I ordered a new mainboard from eBay in the hopes that replacing it would fix my issue.

But the board I received turned out to be from a different model (the 52" instead of 42").This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as putting it into the TV prevented it from booting up normally, and it instead flashed an error LED indefinitely.

Under normal circumstances the TV would attempt to boot, then crash shortly afterwards.

As this happened so quickly, the TV wouldn't take commands from the remote.

Thanks to the wrong mainboard, the TV is able to take commands from the remote while it's in it's error mode! This allowed me to send the Factory Reset command (Hold UP on the remote while pressing the TV's power button). When I did this, the TV froze and required me to pull the power.

I put the correct mainboard back inside, and it refused to even turn on. I was sure I'd killed it for good.

But I left it disconnected from the power for a few hours, reconnected it and it FINALLY booted up, with it's settings completely reset.

Since then it's been on for about 24 hours instead of the usual 1 minute!

It did crash once, but instantly reset itself instead of the usual freeze. Googling around I found someone else with the restarting issue who recommended turning Wifi off, which I've now done.

I've had 0 issues since doing so and am happy to have my TV back :)

So after all that, it all seems to have been a software issue.

For anyone else with this issue, attempt a factory reset and disable Wifi!
