TV won't come on

I turned the tv on and it made a hissing sound. There was an acidic burning smell with no picture and the unit will not come on at all at this time. The tv is only 3 yrs. old, has not been moved and is in dry area. Any ideas?

Re: TV won't come on

Depends if you know about electronics and have SOME knowledge on how to fix them the user may well be able to source parts to fix them. Read WARNING below..

As suggested the fault could be FBT "Horizontal Output Transistor" (Check to see if shorted.) burnt out resistor or electolytic capacitor.

IF the FBT (Flyback transformer.) needs to be replaced you will want to know how to SAFELY discharge CRT HIGH VOLTAGE (WARNING CRT acts like a huge capacitor and may store around 25000Volts AND CAN KILL a person .) if unsure get qualified person to do repair.

By the way the term "No user servicable parts inside." is to keep
most people safe from high voltages etc inside.

If you know where to go you can get all (Well mostly all) the parts you require.

Things to assist people to help:

Does your TV have self diagnostics?
Ie. does standby led flash in a particular sequence.
This will give a tech a 98% of correctly advising your fault.

If you open the case (Have good lighting.) you should be able to see a burnt out resistor with no problem as it will most likely be brown to black with unreadable color codes or value on it.

Write down the resistor PCB id eg R615 etc. (Same applies to Horizontal Output Transistor etc.)
This will also assist a tech to provide correct information, and reduce the possible causes of fault..

ALWAYS remember if in doubt get a qualified person to do job.

Really cannot help you. Could be many things. Power Regulator short Circuit, Horizontal Output Transistor and FBT ... Best get a professional to take a look. These sets are all solid state, and there are no user servicable parts inside.

Hissing sound from a Panasonic old TV...Sound and picture are OK. The hissing sound even continues when the MUTE on the Box is ON. The hissing only stops when the MUTE on the TV is ON. I am using the...

If you disconnect or power off the converter box does the hiss go away?
If you connect a VCR or DVD player does it still have the hiss? We
need to isolate what source is causing the hiss if it is from the set or
if it is from the converter box.
When you turn the volume control down on the set, does the hiss
reduce in level? If mute stops it, it should reduce in level as you
turn the volume down. Then turn up the sound level control on
the converter box whether its a manual control or by remote. If you
can get a combination that minimizes the hiss and gets higher sound
level from the programming that may cure it.
I am not familiar with the converter box you are using. Are you using
Audio/Video cables from it to the set or is it coming out with coaxial cable
and used on a channel? If you are using a very old set with a tuner input
perhaps the fine tuning is out of adjustment.

Good day.
I believe there may have been some parts that were burned out due to high voltage. There are cases where insects such as lizards penetrated and got stuck then got stuck then got electrecuted inside. You can open the back cover of your unit or better, refer to the repairman.

Hissing Sound

A hissing sound that comes from the back of the set (not from the speaker) usually indicates a high voltage leak, most likely around the "suction cup" at the top of the picture tube or around the flyback transformer. Remove the back of the set and turn it on, and when you hear the hissing sound, shut off all the lights in the room and you should be able to see a purple-ish or white-ish glow from the spot that is hissing. Shut the set off, discharge the high voltage and clean and seal the problem area. Of course this should be done by someone experienced with stopping high voltage leaks.

ProScan PS32500 32"-Picture has white static line & Static/burning smell

It sounds like the circuit board is arching over somewhere. It could be as simply as cleaning and digging out the carbon mark to stop the arching. This is most likely the screen or focus voltage causing this, if there are no parts that have broken down. This will damage the printed circuit board and make things worse the more you let this cook. This could be dangerous for you to mess with because of the high voltage present, so my best advise would be to get this into the repair shop as soon as possible before this board burns up. It should not cost all that much if the CRT board can be repaired. Good Luck

No picture or sound

If you had a burning smell, well the board is toast. These sets are made to replace the entire board at one time. Before installing the replacement module, the picture tube should be checked. A defective picture tube ( such as a G1 short) may cause a failure in the power supply section.
