Thanks Mike.  No, this is not the "slow display coming on" issue, which I have seen a few times as well.  But the second problem that listed in the link you provided, "cap failure" that was listed by VK6DG, is interesting.  
What I see when I push the power button is NOTHING! No display, No little LED indicators, no nothing! It's like it's unplugged from the wall.  If I leave the button pushed in for about 4 to 5 minutes, it comes on.
Carl, K2YR
