I expect you will find success. We had a client who had their LG go down. They brought us in the board and new power caps and we did the soldering job for them and they reinstalled the board.
Their report back was that it worked great after the replacement was done.
The guy had done his homework and had gotten replacement power caps which were actually built to withstand the power flow which was going through them based upon the experiences of others online.
As it is similar to a fuse blowing, but a lot more difficult to replace, there is rarely any other electronics which are affected and you should be in good shape before long.
Of course, buying a 'backup' TV is something which still really should be considered.
Might I suggest Panasonic?
AV Integrated - Theater, whole house audio, and technology consultation during the build and installation process in the Washington DC, Northern VA, and MD area.
I have a good news and a bad news
Good news: I got new caps and replaced them today
Bad news: It didn't fix the problem
Good news - I found someone who will fix the tv
Bad news: His fee - $250-300 including parts is reasonable, but I question if it makes sense for me to invest that kind of money into old TV - $400 I could a new one (32 to 40" from lesser brands)
Best news: I'm shopping for new TV !!!
With old TV - I do ether (in this order)
A) Sell for scraps to TV guy (if he's interested)
B) Will keep this around as a project (and then C)
c) just throw it out
Looking for suggestion for TV up to $2k (including everything) - Preferably plasma, but I don't need/want anything but a very good quality 1080p picture
No 3d (i know it's comes with a package)
No Smart boolshit etc...
Sizes: from 50" and up
edit: how about Samsung PN64D550C1F or Panasonic TC-P65ST30 ??

Gotta respect the economy:
TC-P60S30 - $1,239.00
TC-P50S30 - $900
Please help me narrow it down, based on PQ vs price
VT series imo too expensive
My advice to you.. no 3D like you say and
"BUY AS BIG AS YOU CAN"
Once my Vizio goes, I'm looking around a 70" to 80" inch display
pls continue discussion here:
