It is an lcd.
TV Technician: Anthony F., Owner of TV Service Center replied 8 years ago
you have a power supply issue
you probably have bad capacitors If you see any that look like this
if you do you can replace them
otherwise you will need a power board
but lets look first these are easy to see

I have the back of the TV off and have opened both boxes. I see many capacitors but none that exactly match the ones in the picture. What next?
TV Technician: Anthony F., Owner of TV Service Center replied 8 years ago
They dont have to match the ones in the picture look at the tops are they flat?
or puffy like in the picture?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
There are about 100 different capacitors on the two main boards. I have not idea which ones you are talking about. Which board, and where on the board? How would I get them off, aren't they sodered in?
TV Technician: Anthony F., Owner of TV Service Center replied 8 years ago
Yes they are soldered in
I just asked you to visually look at them
do any of them have puffy tops?
