I have a mitsubishi tv model wd 60638 I changed the lamp. Tv works fine for about 20 minutes then I start to smell like something is burning then picture starts to flicker, what could could cause this


You have a bad connector in the lamp. Stop running the TV immediately and contact the company you purchased the lamp from. this is common in older DLP tvs but not in one 5 years old unless you have a lot of hours on it. the connector can crack and arc inside the plug and then melt and smell terrible. It usually very repairable if you can get a ballast for it. the plug is part of the ballast.

the same thing happend to me you need a new lamp. Your lamp burned out you can buy a new one at a electronic parts store or find it online or call the tv company and see if you can buy one dont turn it on any more, it could be bad for the tv.

Samsung DLP HL50a65 Turns on and off, funny smell


I am amzaed you have had it for 3 years, this usually occurs about 18 months from purchase. Samsung, however are good to deal with than most.
Stop turning it on in the hope it will self reapair. It is more likely to self combust! The capacitors on the sustain boards have died, expanded and possibly split.
This is generally as a result oif poor components ( made in korea or china) being used to keep the price down. However the life expectancy is compromised.

This is not a DIY repair ( many have tried this option only to find it does not work out . Mainly becausde all 3 boards are recommended for chaning and they need to be set up correctly with the right feeder voltage to each of them.

an estimated repair cost for your set is in the $500 dollar range

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

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.

Tv won't turn on. tv made a loud noise and picture went funny.When we tried to plug it later,it just kept making a crackling noise.Does it sound like something that can be fixed?


Power supply is blown. Google it, check ebay (with tv model name) or just part it out and get a new one. You can also buy these used for really cheap off of craigslist.org
