You should check the Bridge Rectifier, it also may be something else in the power supply, or another board. You should disconnect the power supply from the other boards and try again.

have you disconnected it from the other boards?

I tried to get your power supply for an example, but it very similar to all SMPS.

Do you have a DMM?

I DONT KNOW WHAT A SMPS OR A DMM
Expert:  Jeff the TV Guy replied 7 years ago.
A SMPS is what you have in your TV Switch Mode Power Supply,

A DMM Digital Multi Meter is required to troubleshoot it.

If you do not have a meter, you will need to get one, or refer the repair to a professional.

One thing you can do is disconnect the SMPS from the other boards, this may show you where the problem is, but it is not 100% failsafe.

Please let me know what else I can do to help!
