I had to fix a tv for one of my neighbors. Exactly the same model. It seems this model is particularly prone to led failure of this type.
I also recently fixed a Philips tv, about 5 years old, an smps ic had died (1.51 euros from AliExpress) - saved another from the dump.

@teriastiles: If the white speckles don't move and are there when the screen is supposed to be black then it may be the led driver board is faulty. Worth replacing if you can find one cheap somewhere.
