TV Had Burning Smell and Now Won't Power On

A plastic/electronic burning smell coming from vent at top of tv filled the room so i turned off the tv. attempted to turn on the tv about 30 minutes later but it would not turn on -- no lights showing either. did attempt to unplug power cord from the wall but it did not help.

help!

my sony bravia klv40u100m was purchased in january 2007, manufactured in june 2006 (according to back of tv) and has not had any problems at all before this.

    I have the same problem. No power light, burning smell and just over two years old. That's $1000/ year rental. The fixes that have been posted sound expensive and unreliable. My next LCD TV/Monitor will be the inexpensive no-name brand. It will be less painful when it fails. I will likely have to pay someone to environmentally dispose of this one.

It is a real possibility that the power board has failed.

It is fairly easy and safe to remove it and inspect it and the burnt component will be easy to find.

Make sure you place the TV on a flat surface screen down where it is well supported. Do not put anything on the table under the set if there is a chance it will come in contact with the screen. Allowing the weight of the set to rest directly on the screen presents a real risk that the screen will break. Lying flat on a table, the set will rest on the frame around the screen which should be safe.

Do not apply power to the set with the back off as there is a risk of electrocution.

The board is available as a module and can be found on eBay occasionally. The part number is 1-789-496-11 and it will cost between $250 and $300 new.

I suggest you turn the repair over to a qualified service professional for the best outcome. Attempt any repairs at your own risk of creating further damage or replacing the wrong parts. The board failed for a reason. The core cause may not be the power board.

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Check whether Va & Vs voltage come to the display panel, from the main power supply regulator board. If not, the SMPS board [power supply regulator board] is faulty.

TV turns on fine but turns off in 5 to 10 mins


Yes, this normal, by the lack of detail shown in your question. Once you press any key it should come back on unless it is set to turn it self off while in sleep mode. This is to protect the display from creating burn in setting.
