A popping sound can be a good thing because it will be easy to identify a blown up or degraded component,if you are familiar with tv service you might spot the bad part fast just by looking at it and then change it,sometimes you actually have to check a component with a meter to tell is gone bad,check the main fuse ,it should be close to were the power cord comes in,if is black you will have bad components ahead and you will need the assistance of a servicer,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help.Let Us know how it goes.

My tv. proscan mod. ps50700 won`t turn on

The PS50700 uses the 195 series chassis. The most common cause of the set not starting up is a shorted flyback (high voltage) transformer. Sometimes a shorted flyback will also cause the horizontal output transistor to short too. These parts need to be tested and/or replaced by a tech familiar with the RCA 195 chassis.

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !

If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

The CRT on the left will need to be replaced. You can test it by removing the CRT drive board from the bottom of that tube and leaving it suspended without unplugging any wires. try plugging it back in and pressing power. If it powers up with that drive board hanging off the bottom of that tube then you know thats the issue and the CRT ( tube) will need replacement. You can get the replacement CRTs ( tubes) from

Replaced the lamp in Samsung hl-s5086w and now T.V. won`t turn on but has a high pitch noise coming from back of set.

The high pitch noise is the color wheel that needs replace the noise is coming from a bad bushing that goes to the color wheel and is a common problem.
