I do not know specific on this model (which youdid not give a model number)

The most possible cause is capacitors which fail but also other parts or software issues can be at fault. Sets like most modern types have a start up routine which verifies sections of you set are working correctly before fully powering up, so if a fault is found just shut down.
There may well be a known part or parts but sets are made with components fitted by passing through "ovens" to make solder joints, these are at higher temperatures than normal tin/lead and standard irons are mostly not able to melt it without damage to track etc.
My advice is to contact Thomson (French electronics giant) for their nearest service agent a far better solution than to try yourself, many of the "thin" sets after a couple of years (out of guarantee) are not fixable because they require panel changes which soon run out of stock if many go wrong, sad but true.

Hope this helps........

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.

Some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

You should re-tune it once, and should make sure, that it do not memorize any tuned channels in it memory. If so, the main system control memory IC should be replaced. But; if you want to re-tune it, you should have a remote control. It can be either its original one, or a universal remote control.
If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability.
Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.
