There is probably a bad capacitor on the power board, I had the same thing happen to my 42LB1DR after 2 years. T.V. would turn on and white power light would blink, no pictue and no sound. If your'e a diy'er, it is not that hard of a fix. Take all the covers off of the back of the tv(UNPLUGGED!!!), then look at all the capacitors on the power board.
These are the capacitors, look to see if any of them appear to have a bump on the top of them. They are supposed to be flat, you can also tell if one of them has gone bad if there is an oily substance on the metal cover that was removed. If one of them is in question, carefully remove the board, and take it to an electronics store to have them sotter ?sp on a new capacitor. It ended up costing me around $40.00 to have this done. Good luck and if you are not comfortable trying this, than take it to a repair shop, but I was quoted around $450 to take the T.V. in. No Thanks

Most of the time it is the Main Board in the TV that the sensor plugs into. They have had many issues with this Board causing this problem. To be sure, you will need to call a professional.
Hope this helps,

I've answered three of these so far, so this problem must be a very large manufacturer's defect big among large-screen LCD TVs of a bunch of different makes.
It's a power capacitor inside the TV that controls whether the power supply works or not. Our Samsung 46-inch started doing the same thing with about 2 months of a 2-year warranty left in it, and I'm glad we called the local retailer, because they were aware of this problem and gave us the number to Samsung, who paid to send a trained repairman about 60 miles to our house to fix it. During his repair, I helped him remove the large back cover, and set the TV on its face, and asked him about the problem. He detailed to me exactly what I said above, and also that it's been a very big problem with the rush to get new TVs out to market.
If your TV is still under warranty, jump on this situation before it runs out--it is a hardware problem, not fixable otherwise...
If it's out of warranty, your local TV repairman should be able to repair this for less than $100, easy (the part on ours was a $2 capacitor, the repairman said).
Hope this helps.
