Unplug the tv, take off the back cover and feel the top of 3 capacitors. On my d52w20, CP150 (rated at 2200uf 16V) was blown and the top was bulged out. You should also check CP120 and CP114 to see if either are blown. I don't have a clear picture of where it's located, but I have a picture of what you should see after you take off the back cover.

In the middle of the picture you see an aluminum heatsink in the shape of a 'C' with the opening facing away from you. That is where CP150 is located. CP120 and CP114 should be located nearby, but if you can feel a bulge on any of the tops of those 3 capacitors replacing them should fix your problem. Replace the existing capacitors with a higher voltage rating of either 25v or 35v.

"4 capacitors on the power/deflection board. CP110 220uf 200v. CP120 220uf 35 Volts. CP114 220uf 35 volts. CP150 2200 16 volt. also check entire delfection board for cold solder especially around flyback. bad connections here can cause problems like some of the fp fuses blowing and cutting off convergence supply"

You should be able to find this part locally or at Radio Shack or even ebay. Depending on which capacitor you need replaced, the specifications will be printed in the sides of each. Capacitance, uF=micro farad, needs to stay the same but V=voltage can be increased a little. For example if you replace CP150, you could replace it with a 2200uF 25v capacitor.

the problem you described is usual wear and tear but an easy fix your flyback needs to be resoldered and ther is a resistor a 150ohm that is starting to open up that resistor is toward the back to your right next to a plug to provides B+ to your CRT boards
