Hi , I`m Jack , I will be helping you today
Can you please send me a reply when you are ready to proceed ?
Note that I need time to type and research for parts and info if needed so don't be surprised if there are delays between replies

What is the tv doing now if anything ?
Is there a light or blinking light at the front , clicking sound from inside when you plug in the power cord or try to turn it on ?
Or completely dead no activity whatsoever ?

Just looked up the parts on this tv and no need to determine if the power board or main board would be the culprit , they both on the same board .

From your description this is a typical case of weak/vented capacitors in the power circuit and the easy way to repair this yourself would be to replace that board , here is a new one on ebay ,click this link ;

This is Plug&Play ,no solder or adjustments and if you or a friend is handy with a screwdriver and can remove the back cover then you can do this yourself, no special tools required.

If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired in a shop could cost you the same as a new one .
