Sony PMB50HX1 - has sound, no picture

I sat down to watch TV, heard a popping sound. No picture on my 52" plasma, but we have sound. Anyone ever heard of such a problem? Model # Sony PMB50HX1 . TV is over one year old. No blinking lights. I unplug the power cord to the TV and the reset switch comes on/off four times and then red.

Re: Sony PMB50HX1 - has sound, no picture

It sounds like either Y-sus or the X-sus pcb. These are usually fixed at board level and can be quite expensive. If your in Australia Speedy Spares in Melbourne should be able to supply these Boards. They are located on the left and right hand side of the panel and will be connected to the panel through smaller sub PCB's. The x and y sus boards are about 30cm x 20cm in size.

TV pops, then no picture or sound

Trintitron were very state of the art when they came out in the 1960s. The Sony company stopped production of the newer version, flat screen in 2008 of the trintitron. Popping noises aren't a good sign. You can try resetting it to factory default settings. Try to have the power on to tv, then, hold down the reset button on the REMOTE CONTROL- next on the tv PRESS THE POWER BUTTON ON=IF AND WHEN THE TV WILL TURN ITSELF OFF AND ON AGAIN, THEN YOU CAN RELEASE THE RESET BUTTON. Unless it This noise is caused by the expansion and contraction of the cabinet during warm up and cool down of the lamp in the optical block of the television. This is normal operation. But you having no picture, this could be your power circuit is going out. You can get it fixed, but if it is an older tv you may want to upgrade to an LCD, HD, or even a plasma. They have really nice flat screen HD TV now that are not too expensive. But if you are pleased with this tv it might be worth getting it fixed.

The 'pop' may have been an arc of electricity from the flyback coil. The flyback is the device that produces very HIGH VOLTAGES --that can kill so be careful--. It may have just goten old and the material around the flyback broke down and allowed the electricity to arc to a near by source to ground. it happens when CRT sets get old. Typically I expect 7-10 years of a consumer grade CRT. Other then that any fix for it would have to be performed by a trained technician because voltages can linger in the 'caps' and even the 'tube' itself for years, I once got 'bit' by a set that was left un-plugged for 5 years.

Sony Bravia XBR-2 32-inch LCD with popping noise problem

Has anyone heard of something like this where the cable box/service is causing popping sounds? yes & it is common problem. And is this something I should be concerned about causing damage to the TV's speakers? not at all. The Sony tech-support representative (over the phone) diagnosed it further to a problem not with the TV but with the cable box/service because there were no popping sounds when I played a DVD on my Playstation 2 that is attached to the TV. they are right that your problem is not due to tv. it is due to cable box/service? yes but not defective it reqires to change the way you have connected tv to cable.please call tech to get it connected in such a way so that you do not get popping sound when you you put off cable box.

TV picture doesn't work

That sounds to me like a flyback transformer went bad. I just had this issue because the ceramic coating on my flyback cracked and caused it to arc off. I got a new one delivered for 31.90 and soldered it in and viola! Perfect 32" tv once again.
