Default XBR960 static issue: failing capacitor?

I'm having an issue with my XBR960. The picture, no matter what the source is, has a layer of static/noise over it. Depending on the brightness, contrast, etc. some settings make it more visible while others make it blend in to the picture more, but no matter what it causes eyestrain and makes the picture look worse. I've been trying to research what could be causing this problem and the only the thing I can find is discussion of a possible failing capacitor. Money is not an issue so if I need to replace a capacitor I have no problem with that, however I would first want to know if that's definitely what needs to be done to make the static go away and also which capacitor I would need to replace. All help is appreciated.

Before you invest too much money in repairing an older crt, remember you can get a 37" LCD for only around $300 now. No, it cant match the 960 on contrast but in many other ways its superior.

A complete model number would help a lot.The age is also need to be specified, because caps develop problems normally at least after few years.

The complete model number would be KD-34XBR960 which was introduced in July 2004. The XBR960 only came in the 34" size. The KD-34XBR960N from 2005 is the same TV with some minor cosmetic changes.

To the OP: The month of manufacture of your TV is on a label on the back of the TV.

HI! Another possible reason for getting the picture "snowy" is either loose connection or cables between the source and the tv.
