Smoke is never a good thing. Is the set still under warranty? If so, request warranty service. If not, can you carefully open up the back and either post a photo here or post what you see? Look for burned resistors or capacitors that have bulging tops. Let us know what you find.

Thanks,
Dan

The TV started smoking. Thought it might be dust. doesn't appear to be.


Your tv is burning part of it's electronics. Turn it off and unplug it. Either take it to a repair ship or replace it.

CAR IS F**KED !


What do you mean by "smoking up and everything."? Was the engine still running at the time? If so, the engine has not seized. Is it making any strange noises? If it's just smoking a lot, but still running and not making any strange noises, you probably just have a leak and and alarmist friend.

Smoke from rear of tv


I wouldn't turn it on either. Not needed, it won't work anyways, just cause more problems. You will need to have the rear panel removed and observe for shorted wires, burnt or swelled capacitors and likely a faulty power supply aka high voltage transformer

When i make a left turn or right turn i get a moaning noice from the rear but strighten the vehicle noice go away ( speed is about 10 miles per hour) and this only occurs when the jeep is warmed up when...


This may sound strange to you,but I think the wrong oil,or no additive has been added to the rear diff when you had it serviced.Did you recently have it serviced?What it is ,is the limited slip diff clutch plates,shuddering as the car is turning.The remedy is to change the oil that is in there ,if it's wrong oil, or put additive into the diff.Its called 'FRICTION MODIFIER'.Check the rear diff also.Hope this helps

Sparks and burning plastic


Leave the back off and try to power the set on...be ready to pull the plug. Whatever is sparking/smoking is your bad part. On this TV I would suspect the flyback transformer or grey rectangular polyester capacitor mounted in front of a heatsink on the left.

TV smokes when you turn it on and no picture


Check to see where the smoke is comming from, the far left side of the unit, it is probably the flyback/horizontal output transformer. The big gray/black thing on the board with the two red wires out of the top of it.Replace the horizontal output transistor (D2348) with a new one to increase reliability. It is the large three leged transistor to the left of the transformer. Use Sony parts if possible.
