Near the 2 caps near the connectors the zener diode and the to-220 package diode often short in these.

That said, if the 12V rail is coming up at all the short isn't on the 12V rail.

In your set there is a small DC-DC sub-board mounted between the power supply and the tcon board. These can and do fail shorted. If it has failed it could shut down the power supply board, disconnect it and see if anything changes.
Unsoldered a pin on the zener and its not reading a short, The to-220 tests fine on diode position...
