Samsung 50" plasma black screen

After about 15 mins of watching tv the screen will go black. If I turn it off and wait 10 mins or so the picture will come back for another 15. I removed the cover and found a few bulged capicitors but they are on the power board, could these be my issues??

Definitely. But do not power it up until fixed.

That can cause other boards to fail. Have it replaced and never plug it in until it's fixed.
