It is most likely the Small Signal Module. There is a module that is plugged into the main board on the left hand side. It plugs in like memory boards in a computer. You release the tabs and push it sideways and out. You have to remove the plastic holder over the top ot it to get it out though. I changed one to repair the same problem you have and it worked. That part is not cheap though. It's a couple hundred dollars so you may want to consider if it's worth the gamble.

I wonder where one can find that "Small Signal Module" if they are willing to part with the couple hundred bucks?
