Question about Televison & Video
The power LED lights up because the power source starts. It then shuts down because something is causing the power source to stop working. Only 2 thing can cause a power source to stop working:
1 - the power source itself is faulty - but this is a simple problem that all decent repairman should be able to fix in less than an hour for labor; sometimes finding the replacement parts will be a pain so this is why your repairman probably bailed.
2 - a part of the tv has failed and it's messing up the entire unit so badly and by that drawing so much power that the power source can't handle it and it's blocking itself as to protect itself- this appear to be your case; Finding out what is the failed part will be practically impossible if you don't have at least a basic knowledge of electronics.
On your tv, at this age it is common for this set to fry the flyback power board and new ones aren't produced anymore.
You have 3 options:
1 - you try to fix it yourself - with your complete inexperience you will just mess it more and throw away your money on useless parts.
2 - you get another repairman to take a look - it either fixes it or it will tell you right away to take the third option.
3 - just junk it and buy a new one.
