Picture problem with Maxent Plasma MX-42HPM20

Hello, I have a Maxent MX-42HPM20 plasma tv which I bought in 2006. Just a few minutes ago the picture died. I can see some picture, but it is flashing blue and green randomly. I can hear the sound perfectly fine. This happens no matter what input source is hooked up, and even if the tv is on with no input; it still flashings pixels of blue. Is this a picture capacitor problem? I've emailed Maxent and hopefully they will get back to me. I'd rather fix the problem myself, or buy a new tv (warranty is off).

Very common problem on these sets caused by bad surface mount caps. Check on ebay for a repair kit it's the only place I know where one exists.

Just over 4 years old and the picture has gone like half the screen is black but you can see some of the picture. the part you can see appears see thru ghost like. Model MX-42HPM20


Worst case, components have failed internally that control the electrical signals with the TV which means a repair shop, but these days a new TV works out cheaper.
The other option is loose/broken cables.
Does the TV do this on all channels and inputs?

I have the EXACT same problem on my 3 year old tv. I don't want to put more than 2 bills worth of repair into this thing so I'm hoping it's a cheap fix. I'm taking it to a pro this weekend. There may be a nice shiny MX-42HPM20 at the local dump soon.
