Hi, I've got a Philips TP3669 TV - Chassis 36Z500-7563

Set would not turn on after the power went out. On two previous occasions I 
have unplugged it for 5 minutes and it reset and worked fine. This last 
occasion the power did not go completely out, the lights just dimmed. The TV 
was not on at the time, but now the set is completely dead and it won't reset 
like it used to. I did hear a small click when it was plugged back in. I know 
others have had the same problem with this model. I'm figuring it's something 
in the power supply. Fuse is good, I didn't see any obvious signs of 
destruction inside. Is this an easy fix? Which part usually fails? Is it worth 
fixing? Where should I take measurements to determine the problem? Any help 
would be most appreciated before I just go and buy a new TV, but I hate to if 
this one is repairable. I'm no longer in the repair field, but am OK with most 

Thanks in advance,
Jim (vcrfix@xxxxxxx)
