Same exact problem, same exact model the FLM-2601. I followed the steps from a you tube video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqZG1F_h1CA and had no difficulties removing & replacing the 25 watt capacitors with new 35 watt capacitors, after a quick $10 radio shack shopping spree. The most difficult & time consuming part of the task was removing the housing & its numerous screws, of various thread type, length & diameter...needless to say it is possible. Only 3 extra screws remained after the set was working again. The television is working great again & was well worth taking the time to research the problem and find a solution that I was comfortable in performing myself. I didn’t think my soldering was that great of a job, but the television works great.

Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
