Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions like what would be "the" capacitor in question and the tv`s model number so could you please send me a reply when you are ready to proceed ?
By the way , this is NOT an answer so there is no need to rate yet.

What is the tv doing now if anything ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is no sound and no picture. The tv is a 2011 model. It makes a clicking noise but doesn't come on.

by the time you replied to me I was gone for lunch

O.k then I`ll start by saying that there are a few hundred capacitors in your tv so .......

This number should be associated with the model number PN43D450A2DXZA , can you verify that on the back cover ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Right now the power board would be a good candidate but a few questions first and perhaps a reset ;

Did it quit while watching it or simply would not come on today ?
Any electrical storm or power blackout in your area prior to this ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Here is something for you to try ;
Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.
Although i do not expect much out of this procedure , it has to be done to confirm that this problem can be cleared or not with a reset.
If that does not do it then we are looking at internal problems with the tv.

let me know how that goes.
