This sounds like a defective flyback transformer. Expect a replacement part to run around $75. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost. Depending upon the set's age, it may not be worth the repair. If you can post the model number, I can get the part number and exact cost.

Tv went off and won't come back on.


the arcing sound is some kind of high voltage leak, which will shut down the tv. pull the speaker grill off and the access board, look at the 3 picture tubes, turn the set on you will see where the leak is, it's usually the high voltage splitter, which has a high voltage wire going into it and 3 high voltage wires coming out going to the picture tubes, if it arcs from the splitter you need to change it, if it arcs from one of the picture tube wires you need to pull the tube out and fix the high voltage leak, and possibly a cooling fluid leak caused it, not an easy reapir, you probably need a repairman.

Power wont come back on TV


the most common component to fail with that sympton is the flyback. If the chassis is a ITC222A the flyback will be 259296 or 265409 as they were both used in that chassis and model number. If you need more assistance let me know the Chassis number from the tag in the back.
