Hi Myra

OK your description of the problem is classic bad capacitors on the powerboard these devices can leak\dry up\have raised domed tops\balloon up\powder discharge so they do need to be visually examined for these tell tale signs, ideally if any are found to be bad they will need to be replaced so the powerboard will need to come out of the set a soldering iron employed and the capacitors removed new ones fitted, if you capable of doing this work please let me know I will provide all necessary details, an easier approach is to replace the powerboard complete but this does cost more to do.

An engineer would charge about £60_£80 for this work

Let me know if you can do this work or need more info

I will speak to my son in law he may be able to do this - if not will need to consider new TV

Yes these smaller sets are now becoming none repairable because they can be picked up quite cheaply however if you\someone you know can do the work then it will be cost effective.

Let me know if I can do anything else, you can come back here anytime even after rating the answer positively, I may not be able to answer immediately but will when I see your post

Many Thanks
