I have an old and faithful (well, until today) 32" Philips CRT TV (32pw9309) that was purchased on 2004 and served me very well since then. Today, while the kids were watching a DVD, we heard a "pop" sound and the screen went blank. The blue power led started blinking. I can turn the TV off and on, but after a few secs the led starts blinking again.
So, assuming that the sound was of a blown capacitor, I decided to open up the beast and try to locate that cap. Flipping it on the screen side, I unscrewed the 6 screws and tried to pull the cover up. The problem seems to be that there are plastic locks at the topside of the screen, which I cannot release, so the cover won't fully open.
Any idea how can I open the cover for servicing the TV?
