Sansui started having white smoke come out of it and a funny smell too. I unplugged it then plugged it back in and it worked for about 10 minutes. Then the picture froze so I turned it off now it won't...


It sounds that any capacitor have been busted out. Contact any service technician. Do not check the set, by power it ON. It might make things worse.

Tv only stays on few min then sounds funny no picture. Turn tv off then back on ok for few min. Then same thing happens.


sounds like a fault with the logic board. that area controls the sound and picture. if it is it will need to be replaced. look for a chip on the logic board that may have a crack in it.

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

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.

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.
