UN40ES6100F - Backlight Blinking?

Text:

The backlight to this Samsung UN40ES6100F LED TV is blinking. I can confirm there’s a picture onscreen because when plugged in, the backlight flashes on and off randomly, often with a second or two in between flashes, though the pattern is irregular. On the inside, I can’t see any bulged or burnt capacitors on the analog board. My particular model has three boards attached, and a visual inspection yields nothing awry.
