Question about Televison & Video
The capacitors on the main power board of the tv are likely old and have become damaged.
You will need to open up the tv and inspect all of the capacitors.
Where you see a capacitor that is domed on the top of it other than flat you will need to replace the capacitors in question with the same voltage and farad rating.
Once you have done this the tv will work again Matt.
Just make sure when you remove the old capacitors to take note of what side the stripe on each capacitor is pointing to that pin.
And make sure the new capacitor goes in the same way or orientation as the old one in relation to where the stripe is.
It should you no more then a few £ or $ to replace the capacitors.
Where you can get them from tandy, radio shack or rs electronics, or through e bay as long as you have the correct farad and volt ratings for each capacitor you need to replace Matt.
i have fixed a lot of large Lcd tv`s this way Matt, and it always down to bad or failed capacitors, as they get damaged due to the amount of heat produced from the LCD screen, particularly if the Lcd tv is a few years old Matt.
