    Thx for the reply on this! another question then. in one of your posts you said to replace:

    c97,c19 and c16. but looking at the board, the caps i see there are the large blue caps next to the yellow coils and look nothing like the caps from digi-key. can you explain that a little bit?

    thx again--

    the caps from digikey are the high specification type capacitors, while the caps on the board are polypropylene capacitors, the replacement are better and last longer

First check the power cord and ensure it is firmly plunged into the set or it could be the fuse on the power board which I am almost certain you will not be able to purchase anywhere. do you have a pic of the board?

I have the same problem, with the cover off I used a hair dryer to warm the C18 capacitor then switch the tv on and it works. C18 is located at the top of the power board, thats the second board on the left, it's value is 450wv 330uf. Until I can get the capacitor I leave the back open. Let me know this works for you.
