Over the past 8 months I've been hearing a buzz from my XBR55HX929, that is almost 4 years old and was used about 12 hrs/day, everyday.

Buzz has become louder and more often. Also, it lasts some time (few minutes) and then disappears. Some hours later, it comes again. Lately, it has been lingering more than when it started about 8 months ago. If the TV displays a pure black screen, buzz volume goes down. Whiter screens mean louder buzz.

Is is volume independent, regardless of muting or turning volume up. Everything points to capacitors, and as an electronic engineer, I'd shoot the PSU caps.

However, I am out of country and I am really short of suppliers here. A friend from US is coming to visit me and he could bring the caps over.

My question is: has this happened to anybody who actually fixed it by himself? Can anyone tell me what are the values of the PSU caps for this model? Any technician around who could help me with this?
