Yes there is a sheild they install to direct the fluid away from the printed circuit boards
A few things come to mind, but if you have no solid state experience with TV repairs, you really should let a trained tech do this repair. There is a resistor that changes value in the power supply that goes bad sometime, its R902, a 270k 1/2 watt, A capacitor that goes bad also in the power supply, C920- 10mfd @ 100volts,and R540 off pin 5 of the flyback will open up or cold solder connection.. Remeber stay safe as this is no place to be experimenting with. Good Luck Ps please dont forget to rate this thread.
