I see , what you are describing does indicate bad capacitors on the powerboard, these devices can balloonup or have raised domed tops or leak electrolyte, are you able to do work yourself with the set?I will provide all the necessary info for that
The first check involves getting the back off the set and making a visual check of the capacitors, again I will provide all necessary info in my next post
If you are not comfortable with that you will need a tech www.tvrepairpros.com will locate a tech in your area
