    if it is making a sizzle sound and a definate burnt electric smell, then you have a bad solder point, because i had the same problem. i still have a warr. on mine and the serviceman was in and out in 30 min.

    The TV shut off by itself.  I tried turning it back on and the green light comes on for 10 seconds and then goes out.

Hello All,

This set has the ITC222 chassis which has a problem with bad capacitors CP240, and CP250. In any event check these capacitors to see if they are puffy if they are replace them and this should solve your problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,
