I have a 52 " HDTV It was lightly dropped on the right corner. Now the green light will come on for 15 seconds and goes back on. Sometimes the sound will come on but no picture. Please help if you can. Thank you!

RCA F36650 I think the volume button on the top is bad. How do I remove the top control assembly? The back of the TV is already removed

. The control panel has a clip that will release it to slide foward to the front of tv. Careful as this tv has a lot of power saved around the picture tube when unpluged. Leave unpluged overnight then attempt repair.
