That was it. I found cp150 and it was bad. I replaced it and my tv works like new. thank you very much for your help.

I found that CP150 was bad. When looking at it, it is located on the left side board, on the right side of that board in the middle of a C shaped heat sink. When looking at the capacitor it was easy to tell that something was wrong because the top was puffed up. I replaced it with a new one (16 Volt, 2200uF) and it was working again. The part cost less than 5 bucks an took about 10 minutes to replace

I had the same problem with the power button blinking 3 times and not coming on. I took this advice and changed the flyback 259296. That did not work. I also took the advice of superman276 and changed the cp150 and my tv works now. Flyback is $60 and the cp150 is $2. I pretty much wasted my money on the flyback.
