Hello all. I am hoping someone can send me in the right direction regarding repairing an old plasma.

I have been lurking here for quite a while as I am building out our basement for a theater/games room for the family. The plan is for a mid level setup with an 80" Sharp as the focal point. Then the TV in our great room started to fail.

The TV is a 7 year old Dell W4200 plasma. I would rather try to fix it myself and get a few more years out of it than pay $1,000-$1,500 for a new TV. I have actually ordered a new TV but I can cancel that.

The question is - from the attached pictures is it possible to say what the problem might be? My guess is it isn't the panel itself but one of the boards. Would anybody be able to hazard a guess as to which board it may be? There are many options for the TV at the following link. I would of course confirm the panel number and actual part number on the board once I am pointed in the right direction.

I consider myself quite capable of doing this repair and am willing to risk $150.
