TV won't show any picture or color

We were watching a show and heard a loud pop and smelled a burned elect. component then the screen acted up and the Tv turned off on its own. I could not turn it on anymore, i hear it click like its turning on and a red light near the power button comes on but theres no picture or color what so ever. if its left on like that for a while, a heavy burnt smell is detected. does anyone know what might be the problem and what i can do to fix it?

Re: TV won't show any picture or color

1St. need to konw how many times the light bilks, it sould bilk a # of times then a short pause then repeat the # of bilnks again & again. The number of blinks is a an error code to help locate the cause of a fault. it is not allways accurate, but it's usually right. give the # of bliks & i will try to get you into the right circuit.

Mitsubishi WD-52525 52" Rear Projection HDTV popped, bad picture and vibrates

The pop was a high voltage arc of electricity that blew some vital components on the main circuit board. The unit is of no use now. Repairs are far more than replacing the TV.

I was playing a game (PS3) and I heard a slight "pop" from the tv

User can't really fix this at all. Even a regular TV shop would have problem replacing individual components. What you can try to do is maybe order the board that has the burnt components, and raplace it yourself.

This may be an easy problem to fix. If you heard a pop sound, it's possibly a burnt cap on the powersupply. Check caps C521, C522, C517 or any burnt caps on the RA-3 chassis. Obviously be careful when checking.
