My father had a TV with similar problems. He got mad at it and bought another one.
He let me have the broken one and I opened it up and found two swollen capacitors.
A trip to Radio Shack, about five bucks, another trip to Wal-Mart (for solder)
about an hour and a half of actual dis-assembly, fixing the problem, and re-assembly
and I had a working big screen.
My advice. search google using the terms (your TV) and dis-assembly, or (your tv) replace
capacitors, and someone will have had this very same problem and will probably have posted
either info, or maybe even a video on how to fix it yourself...you'll be surprised I think. It is
not hard to fix, if it is your capacitors, and I think that is your problem.....I don't think having
your computer plugged in had anything to do with it.
