Default Hitachi 42hxt42u no backlight

Bought telly at boot sale, seller said it was working but turns out he was lying!

Anyhow turns on but screen remains dark. When I shine a torch through it you can see it displaying an image.

Anyone had any expieriance with this set or any suggestions where to start before I order a backlight perhaps needlessly.
