First try to unplug from wall for 40 MIN, and if that don't work, then power supply problem.

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.
