Noise when turned on

My sony which i've had 7-8 years has been making a noise for the last year or so when turned on...I would describe it as like a loud electrical thud or buzz for about a second ... picture comes on and is fine...have noticed on the wall behind the tv where back of tube is close, a black burn-like spray...nothing smells like burned wires,etc while in operation....what might be the problem?...thanks for any insight

Re: noise when turned on

For the age of the set I would guess you have many loose conections in power supply and horizontal driver circuit,you need to call someone who can locate all of the overheated areas and resoldered them.Do not try to use it anymore or it will fail completely.Do not do it yourself unless you know how to safely work on a tv set.

My sony wega keeps cutting off then coming back .

a couple of years old can be a long time:

has the TV been on 24\7

It's the amount of hours that matters..

electrolytic capacitors typically last 3000 to 5000 hours....

Special "long life" caps last close to 7000
but the caps in most consumer electronics, even broadcast equipment 3-5K hours.

Green screen and distorted picture sound is good but no picture

It must be connected with the color circuit of your tv, a board connected to back end of the tube. Could be dust, cob web or carbon deposit shorting a transistor. Popping noise if loud enough can be attributed to high voltage circuit fault and picture tube.

Have it service by a qualified person.

TV won't turn on, makes high-pitched clicking noise

Its a real good chance that the HOT (horizontal output tranistor) transistor is shorted if so the flyback trasformer may be bad also. the transformer will make a tick tick sound if it is trying to start.

this symptom is usually caused by a breakdown in the power-supply circuit. in most modern receivers (transistorised and/or ic), it may also be caused by a breakdown in the horizontal deflection circuits (horizontal oscillator, pre-drive or drive circuits.). this is because the supply volatages for the tuner, video intermidiate frequency(VIF), video amplifier, sound intermediate frequency(SIF) and vertical output circuit are usually supplied by the horizontal output circuit. but if you are not inclined with this kind of job, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck and happy valentine!
