Customer Question

rca hd52w59yx2 won't turn on anymore.
Power button comes on for about 5 seconds and then nothing.
I blew all the dust out the back and the Tv came on after about 5 tries.
Next time I couldn't start it at all.

Power light just goes out after about 5 seconds.For awhile I could eventually get it to come on, but not anymore.
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.
Its very likely to be bad capacitors in and around the power-board, they will need to be visually examined first for leaking/ballooning/raised domed tops then removed with a soldering iron and replaced is this something you think you can do yourself?
Let me know please
A positive rating is appreciated the question will remain open

I can do that myself. I've read where the CP150, CP114 and CP120 can go bad, but do not see any bulging/leaking.Which ones should I replace and in which order?
