I've had this little kitchen TV (Samsung LN-T1953H) for 8 years, and it has worked fine until recently. It started to take longer than usual to power up and show picture/sound. First it was just a minute or so, then a couple of minutes, then 3 or 4, and it continues to take longer and longer. This morning it took nearly 15 minutes to come on. Once it does, everything works perfectly, but the wait is agonizing.
I'm wondering (before I just bail and look for a new one), could this be something simple? I'm not a skilled repairman, but I have cracked more than my share of electronic musical gear over the years, and I know my way around with a soldering iron Razz Could this be something as simple as a bad cap? Please note, I have tried pulling the plug for 30 minutes in case it is something that might "re-set", and I've contacted Samsung, but they have no "software updates" or "return to default" software available. Obviously it's not a huge expense to replace, but I am curious to get some professional input.
Thanks.

If you won't look, you can't see.

Yes, I can dive in, looking for an obviously charred part, but I was hoping I might find a little direction pointing first.
Thanks though.

Power Supply - puffed capacitors.

Board numbers may help.
