Question about Hitachi 46F500 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
First unplug the unit until problem is found---I would look inside for burnt parts like resistors in the convergence circuit which is the most common issue this set has.
They may be discolored or brown in the middle and not actually charred.
Locate what burned and you will locate the area where the problem is, many resistors in that area are protection, if a short they destroy themselves very quickly ....
If you were having any issue before or at the point it started smoking where picture looked odd or even 3d it will be in the convergence circuit.
Not exact but something like this--the two black chips and resistors in front of them.
