If you remove the back you will fine a couple of caps that are bulged and they need to be replace, or you can buy a new power supply at www.partstore.com. If you want to just purchase the caps, you can get them at www.mcmelectronics.com.

What happened, why do I have to replace caps, this TV is less than a year, What caused this to happen, how can I tell if I just need new caps or a whole power supply. Please elaporate
TV Technician: Joe, Electronic Tech replied 8 years ago
Whole power supply is easier to change, and all you need when you go to www.partstore.com is a model number. They just don't build things like they use too.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
