I need to remove the power supply board to get to the capacitor at the location c514 I have the back exposed and have tried to remove but I don't want to do anything that will break it. Any assistance with pictures, instructions would be greatly appreciated.

Sony tends to hide "locks" to hold their chassis boards down and they can often be hard to find.

That's a CRT projection set, I don't think I'd be inside of it unless you really know what you're doing. Their power supplies tend to hold voltages for ages after they're off - even for weeks - not to mention the CRTs as well.

I also doubt you'd be able to repair it just by replacing a cap, when a Sony power supply or deflection circuit goes it usually takes a lot of other stuff with it.

Best of luck though, I made my spare money in college working on TVs and got involved again for a while about 17 years ago when a friend of the family with a shop fell really ill.

I really appreciate the advice...I will schedule a pro to the house to help troubleshoot
If nothing else you're going to be a lot safer, I assume you've looked into the back and seen how they've stuffed everything in there.

Best of luck it turns out to be something simple.
