Yes it says timer under it

Removed the DM Board, took it to electronics shop, they tested the caps and said are all good, also they tested the fuse in the DM board.
With what looked like a Digital Volt Ohm Meter.
Was not really that hard (I have 30 yrs exp working on Autos and this was a walk in the park compared to some component removals on vehicles!) The internet is a very useful tool for help. I identified the board and removed it. It says DM POWER on it. Has 7 capacitors 1000uf 16V.
I personnaly thought you had to test capacitors out of circuit, although may not be 100% correct, According to another article,
"Of course there are ways to test capacitors, both in circuit and out. While a truly accurate test involved taking the cap out of circuit, a basic test can certainly be done in circuit. To test for capacitor function in circuit demands a good understanding of the circuit operation."
I really want to believe it is the capacitors, as it is an easy inexpensive fix. The man at the shop said he thinks it is in the convergence capacitors? or the main fuse. I will be heading home shortly to test the main fuse.
I am in no way discounting the fact that it is the DM caps but he seemed knoweledgable of TV's Had 4 of them sitting on the counter, and no service calls til Weds! Power outages, surges good for business! This outage affected over 145K people.
