The caps are not that critical in these (there are some exceptions, but not for this board). As long as the voltage rating is at least as high as the original and the capacitance is somewhere near (eg, replacing a 2200uf with 3300uf or vice-versa) it will work. Near the 2 caps near the connectors the zener diode and the to-220 package diode often short in these.

That said, if the 12V rail is coming up at all the short isn't on the 12V rail.

In your set there is a small DC-DC sub-board mounted between the power supply and the tcon board. These can and do fail shorted. If it has failed it could shut down the power supply board, disconnect it and see if anything changes.
