Flashing color in and out with popping sound

My tv just started to flash in and out of color. When it changes color I get this popping sound with the volume and then you can hear the program. This just constantly repeats itself. It stopped briefly the other day, then when I turned it back on today, the same problem was going on. Any help appreciated.

Re: flashing color in and out with popping sound

This sounds like the solder joints have cracked on the AFT can inside the tuner, a common Sony problem. Removing the tuner, opening it up and resoldering the grounds and small transformers inside should clear it up.

Akai PT50DL24 50 in DLP Rear Projection TV-NO PIC OR SOUND

check for popped or raised tops on caps in power supply. also try unplugging set for 5 minutes and resetting it. How about does your color wheel spin up? if your color wheel don't startup then your tv will also shut down. also check all fans they all should be running at turn on. if all fails i would say its your light engine.

I have a 6 year old Samsung PCJ522R 52" TV.

It sounds like at least one of 3 "IHVT",s popped. in short, a "IHVT" is a high voltage transformer. It will have to be replaced along with any other parts that were damaged in the process.
They do produce a strong odor when they pop!!

It is repairable but at a price. there is a good chance that parts will have to be ordered.

you might consider buying a new LCD HDTV instead of fixing this one.

Pop and flash meaning that the picture turns on and off? Many people's tv eventually just turns off all together. Furthermore, if you notice a crackling sound, it isn't just the sound of the tv turning off, it is the sound of sparks and flames emitting from the back of the television. Take notice of this as it is a fire hazzard. If you do notice this, please report the problem to the consumer product safety commision. I beleieve this common problem with large sparks and flames warrants a recall.
