Most likely, the problem is a defective Main Processor Board. This is the board with the antenna, RCA and HDMI plugs. You cant repair or replace component parts on this board, so dont even try. You must replace the complete board. The TV says Sylvania, but it is a bloody Funia TV. Several years ago this foreign company bought out broke-azzz Sylvania . They are still carrying the Sylvania name since Sylvania was a popular TV name in the 70s. Every electronic company in the USA is now owned by the Chinese, so call Funai and order the part from them. Dont be surprise if they dont have a clue what the heck you asking for. America and all electronics have gone to the puddles. Do you know why? GREED.

The problem is the mainboard tried to turn on TV but failed due to internal circuit problem. Normally, the power supply board is malfuntioned.

Your problem is typical of Samsung LCD TVs. The capacitors on one of the internal boards are rated at 10V and should be higher. If you open the case, you'll see bulging capacitors. If you can handle a screwdriver and soldering iron, you can actually fix it yourself with a few capacitors from an electrical supply store. Simply read the specs off the bulging capacitors and get a higher voltage-rated replacement. For exmaple, if the capacitors say "1000uf 10V 105C", you would replace them with "1000uf 35V 105C" or similar rating. Or an easier method: Recently, Samsung themselves have been making repairs as it is such a widespread problem. Call Samsung at 1-800-726-7864 and they may just repair it for free, even if its not under warranty.
