I've read about several others with the wavy picture, and from reading, I need to change out the caps. I couldn't find anything specific on this (how many are there, where are they at, etc). Is there any more info out there on this? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Re: Wavy Problem again
Changing caps wont do much good. if you look into the tv you will see two large stk ics they are mounted to two large heat sinks. i do believ they are stk392-120 or stk392-110. you should also check the sorounding components like resistors and fuses.

Found this person on eBay who repairs the hyperboard for $75 quickly with very positive feedback. http://myworld.ebay.com/kcarrigan/
I have the same problem and will probably send mine after the holidays.
This is a picture of the DM Board in your TV. The wavy lines are tell tale signs of a failed capacitor. The capacitors are the cylindrical components on the board. One or more of them have failed. There is also a FMT Board with capacitors that could be causing this also so test them all. The DM board alone is 1000 bucks so it would be well worth it to invest in 50 bucks worth of capacitors and change them all out. Your boards would be fresh and good for another 4 years. Your other option is to call a TV repair man and he would come pick up your boards and bring them back to his shop and test out the bad 3 dollar capacitor and swap it out and hand you a bill for 500 bucks. Hope this helps you out. George
That unit has a history of bad caps throughout the convergence and other circuits. Personally I believe it was an error in the design.... Check and/or replace the following::: C2451, C3007, C7022, C4613, C2507, C7060 all 100uf/16v and C7127, C7128, C7103, C7154, C7136, C3010, C3008, C3002 all 47uf/16v... You can use a higher voltage rated caps such as 35v or 50v for greater reliability.
yes they provide a free service manual with their kits. the symptom of the blue screen could either be the signal or the FMT as they can both cause those symptoms, My professional guess would be the signal board as the FMT will cause distortion lines across the screen with no picture.
