I have owned this unit for 11 years and have not had any problems until now. When turning on the unit it immediately turns off. This happens with or without the remote. Any ideas on how to remedy this situation?

As a layman, with no electronic background or repair manual, about the only thing you could do is take the back off and look for swollen capacitors that are bulging out and leaking. like this
Sometimes replacing leaking caps will get the set working again,but other times the failed cap causes a chain reaction of failures in the circuit.
The TV has been in it's present location for the last seven years and has not been moved. I t just started acting up and would turn on sometimes and stay on and sometimes would turn it self off immediately after turning it on. I figured it was just showing it's age and had a faulty switch. I have yet to open it up and look inside but will soon!
