These kind of things are usually covered in detail, with pictures, in the user manual.

The stand will be bolted to the TV. You need to find where those screws are and remove them.

These can get tricky and costly but the most likely cause of your issue is the power supply board, the one where your main power comes in for the set. When they blow they have a tendancy to cause a spike in voltage and other components can get damages as well. You have 2 boards one on each side of your screen called the X and Y sustainer boards that could be damaged from the spike, these boards are what create your picture. The cheapest way to fix this if to have someone to check these boards to determine what has failed and how far the damage has spread. I can give you part numbers and places to get boards but unless you determine what the problem is you wil be chasing good money after bad and possibly cause furthur damage. How would you like to proceed? One thing you can do is inspect these boards starting with the power supply and look for bad capacitors, they will be mushroomed or cracked and possibly burned and leaking, if you see any of these that would lead you to the board that failed but not the complete reason why it failed, there may be an underlying short on one of the IC chips as well. the bottom line is your set is not getting the voltage it needs to come on. this project would be more cost wise to have the set checked out diagnostly by a technician who can determine the damage and repair costs. You can also use the diagnostic to buy the parts and repair yourself if you choose. The cost of a tech to check it out is cheaper than replacing a board that may or may not fix the issue depending on what damage has been done.

Some tv's are "modular" this means that some parts are replaceable, remove the back of the set and have a look at where the inputs are located, this is just a starting point, you could try replacing the part which the sockets are connected to. ( do a google search for any numbers etc which you can find on the part in question.

The problem is undoubtedly caused by faulty sustain boards. You will need to replace the X-sus and Y-sus boards to resolve this problem

no it sounds like you probably didnt need a new power supply but simply needed to check your fuses this error normally occurs when a fuse or capacitor has blown and will either be really cheap or really expensive to fix depending on which it is the fuse change should be possible on your own but running a diagnostic to find out which circuit has a blown unit would require some technical assistance and tools

hope this helps
