Magnavox Model: 50MF231D/37 Chassis: EP1.1U AA

Picture had been slow to come on past couple months, sound was fine. Two weeks ago it quit coming on and repeatedly flashed 4 red blinks down by the power light. I searched around and found out about the two 3300uf 10v capacitors that commonly go bad. I replaced these capacitors with 3300uf 16v ones. Television came on and worked fine. I updated the software from the Magnavox site and all was well. Three days later it shut off while I was watching it. It clicked off like I had pressed the power button. The green power light was still on. Pressing the power button turned the green light off. Now when I turn it on just the green power light comes on. If I unplug it and plug it back in two green lights on the power supply light up for a moment and I hear it click, then they go out separately accompanied by two clicks.

Thanks for any help.
