No video after candle was under tv

Hello avforums,

I have a 40" Element LCD 40LE45Q a candle was placed under the TV and when i noticed it was too close it was a bit too late. Symptoms: If you first turn it on you can see the "Element" logo displayed but then the image goes away and i can no longer see the menu or other settings. If i grab a flash light i can kinda see the menu and background images. Any ideas?

I wonder if soot deposits (carbon) could have got onto the backlighting or LED driving circuitry or board.
