Question about Sony KP-61S70 61" Rear Projection Television

Popping sound from TV

There is a loud popping sound from the TV occasionally it will shut off the picture. When I power cycle the TV the picture returns. It's a very intermittin problem and only one out of 5 times will the picture actually turn off. The sound remains on. It seems to be occuring more frequently. I've opened up the back of the TV and cleaned all the dust out to see if that would help and it hasn't. Any suggestions on what could cause this?

Re: Popping sound from TV

Most likly it is one of the crt connections to the Hi voltage block that is causeing this problem or the crt it self is archuing , or the Hi voltage transformer, or the Hi volyagre distribution block is going bad. your going to have to observe ther problem happen or know what to look for when troubleshooting this set. I would recomend that you do not attempt to troubleshoot this set as it is a high voltage problem and theres enough Hi voltage inside this puppy to make a grown man cry or kill him!

Loud poping noise

It sounds like the popping noise you heard was a capacitor blowing its top somewhere in the tv. Sorry I cannot be more specific but if you manage to find out where this cap has gone also check any resistors near it as they can be also damaged. If you cant do this call out a competant technician. Good luck.

Sounds like flyback shorting out and shutting down high voltage, causes TV to turn off for protection.

I would send in for repair cause this is big $$$ cost!

Tv went pop

All you can do is get it repaired or replace. Take the receipt (if you still have it) to the retailer you bought it from and ask about it. Alternative, phone Samsung (number is probably in the instruction manual that came with the TV, or look on their website) and ask if they can do anything about it.
