Are you wanting to repair tyhe set your self?
Do you have soldering equipment and able to change components?
I believe that you may have some bad capacitors on the main board.
Look for leaky, swelled or bulged electrolytic capacitors on the main board.
 10UF/450V CAPS IN THE POWER SUPPLY ----
Yes, I would like to repair myself if possible. I am fairly mechanical, however, I do not know anything about the new HD TV;s. Is this something that I would be able to detect and replace myself.
I don't mind paying the initial $17 but if you answering the further questions will cost me more money then don't answer. I imagine that the caps in the power supply will be costly if I am able to replace at all.
There should only be 2 caps in the power supply that are giving the problem.
They are electrolytic and the values are written on the side. they are 10 MFD
450volt capacitors. You should be able to purchase them for a reasonable price.
You can order from MCM electronics for $1.40 each plus shipping.

Thank you so much Allen for all your help. I am sure that I can figure out how to get into the power source and make this repair.
