Sansui started having white smoke come out of it and a funny smell too. I unplugged it then plugged it back in and it worked for about 10 minutes. Then the picture froze so I turned it off now it won't...


It sounds that any capacitor have been busted out. Contact any service technician. Do not check the set, by power it ON. It might make things worse.

Watching tv funny noise like it blew up and turned off, bad burning smell ,now turn on tv starts to power up like normal and then nothing any help much appreciated, tv is a samsung HLP5685 56' inch rear...


The smell and sound are that of a capacitor burst. If you open the back cover you will find wax around a cylindrical object. That's it. Replace it with an exactly the same item.
