Question about Televison & Video
Power supply capacitor dried out bulged.
These are terrible televisions and all plasmas generate a lot of heat and dry out the cheap capacitors they use on the Psu board.

If your TV is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty. If not under warranty the defective parts could be the power supply or the back light inverter board. Both boards can be replace easily.
The way to know if you have a defective backlight inverter is by shinning a light from a flash light near the screen with the TV on and check in a 45 degrees angle if you have a dark video in the background, if the video is present then you have a backlight board failure. If no video, then is a power supply failure.
I have both boards if you want to buy them.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

I think it is probably a metric bolt. Maybe a 10 or 12 MM. There aren't many if any consumer electronics manufactured in the US anymore, and most use metric screws and bolts. Check one of the bolts from that table stand to see what it is. That will tell you if it is metric or standard.
Best of luck.
