Re: TP55G60 55

There could be a dust issue inside the set, or the flyback transformer, HI voltage distribution,2nd anode leads,deflection yolks could be going bad. Hard call without looking where the noise is comming from. If you know about the safety issues involved with TV repair, you should be able mto find the problem, but you have to know where to look an know where not to touch. if you have no TV exeperience, please contact a trained tech to searce this out for you, because the bite the HIGH voltage will give you, can make a grown man cry! Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this thread

I have a Samsung HLT5076SX/XAA with power up to picture problems.

Im going to guess that you have crackling and hissing noises, as well as the infamous "click" then nothing when you try to start the tv. This is caused by circuit failure on the main board, which powers up the main inverter to charge the screen. ( a high voltage thing that makes the picture come on) when the board cannot provide a high enough starting voltage, the symptoms you described start happening. It is not an easy fix, and will probably set you back a couple hundred dollars or so to fix. I hope the best for you

Wavey color lines at bottom of picture. Crackling noises coming from back bad picture

The "crackling noises" from the back is causing the picture to distort. 1) Either locate source of "noise" and correct or 2) Call a Service Company and get corrected. I would recommend that you DO NOT USE TV until this corrected. It may cause a fire inside your TV.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

TV makes a spinning noise coming from the lower right side.

If there is a red light blinking that means that the projection light needs to be replaced.

Mitsubishi WS-65857 RPTV Popping/Sparking/Crackling Noise, Then No Picture

When they list two flybacks like that it's usually for different models,
>>do you think I might have caused more damage to other parts by continuing to turn it on after the initial symptoms? Those loud pops did not sound good.
more than likely not but who knows.

crackling nose like that is a good indicator of flyback or crt being shorted.
some times you can look on the neck towards the end of the tube and see inside the tube arcing, but then again your picture should be all messed up if that was the case.

Akai PT5598HD 55 in. Rear Projection

Something like this Id have someone who knows there way around electronics, a qualified tech or someone you trust really well :-) Does the crackling affect the TV picture at all ? My first guess would be dust and or dampness on the audio components. Sometimes this can conduct electricity across small pc chips and reak all sorts of havoc. I had an old Tomas electric organ once, and it actually caught fire because two speaker wires were rubbing together and eventually wore thru the insulation and shorted out, but it was also making alot of crackling and static noises. Try raising and lowering the volume low to high and high to low and see if the crackling noises gets worse. Some audio amplifiers put out quite a bit of power, so I wouldnt trust leaving the TV on without a fire extinguisher handy.

TV started popping then died

sounds like the sound amplifyer IC in the set went bad and it holding down or blew out the voltage regulator. If your a tech first thing I would do is find the sound output IC and disconnect the main b+ lead and see if the tv will come on. if it did I would replace the audio output IC. If it didnt i would have to troubleshoot the Power supply for the missing voltage. if your not a tech its not advised to try to do this repair as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set. Seek A Pro to assist in this repair as there is hi voltage in this set even when its unplugged. Good Luck
