I have a Samsung LN40A550P3PXZA LCD TV that I am attempting

Hello,I have a Samsung LN40A550P3PXZA LCD TV that I am attempting to troubleshoot. I am having these problems:- Blinking red power LED = Originally TV would not turn on at all and would just cycle power with a black screen. Backlight would come on but no picture. Replaced power board capacitors and now TV will turn on after a minute or so. Will cycle power a few times before finally turning on.- Picture = picture is clear as far as menu/volume icons go. When I try to connect to HDMI ports (tried a few) I can sometimes see the outline of whats connected and sometimes its just white line static with an obnoxious screeching noise from the speakers.I am now on my second power board. My soldering skills are okay and have replaced nearly every capacitor on the power board as well as checking them on my DMM. I have checked the 5.3V standby leaving the power board and it is good. Fuses have checked out good. Tried using a repair manual but some of the checks in it are nearly impossible to take without shorting out something and causing more issues.I am hoping for advice to help fix this issue that is kicking my butt. Thank you.
