The majority of the output capacitors and all of the startup capacitors were low quality, so all were replaced with high quality Panasonic capacitors.

The TV appeared to have power as the front power light worked both in stanby mode (red light) and power on mode (blue light). Testing the power supply output voltages showed that the 24 volt leg was dead and the 5 volt leg only had 3 volts output. The capacitor circled in red is the 25 volt capacitor and obviosly blown (buldging top).
