Clicking noise+horizontal flashes

Hi, when i turn on my TV, i hear a clicking noise and at the same time ,on the screan, i see some horizontal black lines flashing .maybe 2-3 lines. not always at the same place.. so that happen only during 5 sec and after it stop. this problem happen only when i turn on the TV, but not every time but the majority of the time. i called a repair guy and i don't remember what he did but he putted a lubrifiant on something. and that worked! during maybe 1 year, that problem was gone.... but it started again!! i called him again and that time, he changed that piece ( sorry, i don't know the name of that piece...). and that worked too!! during 1 year again... and the problem is starting again... before calling the guy again, i want to know if that can be solve for good or that problem will always come back after? that problem can be dangerous? if I wait too long, my tv can blow off? LOL.. thanx!

What you are hearing is the high voltage arcing a bit. This is often caused by dust buildup on the high voltage components, & is not harmful. A good cleaning with compressed air will cure it, but this is not a do it yourself job, because dangerous voltages are present inside any TV.

My Grand Wega KFE50A10 has a black screen. When started the power/standby light flashes green and the fan starts. After a period the same light starts flashing red in blocks of five. What does this...


Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast. But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is XL2400 you can find it here:http://www.discount-merchant.com/Sony-XL-2400-Lamp-F93087500-Bulb-A1129776A-p/sony_xl-2400_f93087500_bare.htm?Click=48173 .Have a blessed one!

Mitsubishi WD-62525 TV will not turn on


Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it for a samsung ,it works like your mitusibishi:http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/samsung/bp47-00033a.php The ballast has a sensor that detects when it's not able to power the lamp or if lamp is not responding,it will flash red when that sensor detects that.When you say: "it began to roll like the vertical and horizontal hold did not work then the sound went out" Do you mean you where getting horizontal lines? If you did that could be the Dmd.his is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Usually when there's a green light it could indicate a problem with the power supply,sometimes some capacitors do go bad. Check all of this and comment on this answer to see how it went.

Samsung Model HLR4667WAX/XAA is making a buzzing sound


This TV is horrible. I have the same one and not even a year replaced the light bulb twice. Very disappointing for a Samsung.

Lines on screen


Can you take a picture of the screen and post it? It is not possible for both the horizontal and vertical stages to fail at the same time to produce a cross. A picture of the screen would help significantly.

Won't stay on


The quick horizontal line through the center of the screen usually denotes a failure in the vertical output circuit, and that would keep the set from staying on. You would have to take it to a repair shop for repair.
