So I can see the capacitors are bad. One is shorted and the other one has vented. What else could be wrong in this circuit? I'd like to repair it since the tube itself is still functional.

I had a 3-way CFL do this, what happened is one of the diodes on the input rectifier/voltage doubler shorted, odds are, your transistors might also be shorted.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.
