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 ?

O.k then if this started gradually and getting worse with time like repeated attempts or longer before it would turn on then that was pointing to weak/vented capacitors on this 7 years old tv but now we are talking about a defective power supply circuit
