I think my Vizio JV50p is dead, can/should I revive it?

Here's my problem: When trying to turn on my TV I'll get a pop (the dreaded http://www.avsforum.com/t/1144151/vizio-vp322-32-plasma-pop-of-death-fixed)

It looks like a solvable problem. $15 worth of capacitors and a few hours opening, soldering and testing. If I had a soldering iron, and knew how to solder I wouldn't even be asking the question. I've had the TV for 5 years so while not a long time by any metric I've got a ton of use out of it. I have the means to grab a new set (and with Black Friday approaching it's looking pretty tempting) but if I can get a few more years out of the set for a fraction of the cost it might be worth it.

What do you think AV Club? Either way it's a win for me. I get a new tv, or a soldering iron and possibly a fixed TV.

The specs on the set are lackluster but the included sound system is pretty nice. Sadly I don't think it'll work on other sets. Just as another point to consider.

EDIT: and further feeding the New TV side is a stuck red pixel near the center of the screen.
