You can find a replacement Capacitor at any local Radio Shack. Just ask them for a 50 Watt Capacitor and they will give you a box of 2 for like $1.45
0.047µF 50V Hi-Q Ceramic Disc Capacitor Pk/2
We replaced the blown capacitor as you have suggested but we still have the same problem, TV goes into standby mode after a few seconds. We have been trying to get a replacement board for a few months now but the everyone is out of stock/backorded with no info as to when it may come in, some believe that its a discontinued part. We may have to resort to repairing the other blown components on the board. Would you happen to have the service manuel for 6842-PEM model? Is there any other component that you think may be the cause of the problem? Any help would be truly appreciated. Please feel free to email me directly. Rick. Riccardo_Cardona@yahoo.com
This RadioShack capacitor is no good - too low a voltage rating. Try replacing it with this one, or something with the same values:
This fix worked for me. Best of luck
