Default WS-55857 powers on and then off immediately?

Hello everyone,
After about 10 years of great use, my Mitsubishi 1080 series WS-55857 has just started acting up. I turn it on, and the green light turns on, but about 2 seconds later, it turns right back off. It doesn't make any noise except for a little click when it turns off that it's always made. Also, my power supply has remained the same for the last few years and I know that is not the problem. Is this repairable/fixable? Or has my tv seen it's last days?

Thanks to anyone with any advice whatsoever,
Evan

check the fans,,,make sure they be clear of dust and power up when you turn on the tv.

I did check the fans and they seem to be working. Any ideas on what this would cost to get repaired professionally?

I'd check the caps on the power supply board. Email me at pds318(at)verizon.net if you want me to send you some instructions that might help you.
