heres the deal. I would like to repair this set down on the component level if possible. So here goes. I bought this set for dirt cheap off a friend. He said that the set randomly started shutting off and on for about 2 weeks and now it wont turn all the way on. for example; when you plug the set in the red light comes on like standby. the set wont turn on by the button on the tv. The light will only go blue when the remote is used. also. i have checked all the fuses. they're all good. i am just not getting any picture or sound. And i am getting power to the whole tv. i can even hear the really low hum the power supply like its on. but it hums while its off? From what i can gather, the on/off circuit may be the culprit? any suggestions?

ps. I'm very skilled at soldering, and i have a multi-meter.
