if you have replaced the fuse already then you know how to open the back of the set . The problem is more than likely one of the diodes in the rectifer circuit . They will be the four large black components The bad one will have to be desoldered and a new one soldered in its place . It will take a small amount of technicial ability but can be done easily at home.

Oh yeah, you can most certainly change the power supply by yourself.
It's easy to locate - just follow the power cable - and easy to replace.
Only make sure to let it discharge before you operate it. 10-15 minutes disconnected from power should do.
However, there's no guarantee that the problem is in the power board.
There is a very good chance it is, in fact, not there.
There's another board which commonly fails on many plasma TVs and the effect is exactly as you describe. It's called Y-Sustain board and you can tell which one it is by looking at the side of your TV and seeing which large board has manny plastic connections that enter the display on the side.
That board often has one or two fuses on it - I'd check those first.
