Remove the resistor properly from the board then after removing it you must buy the new one with the same number you have to replace the burn with the new one or just bring it to the electornic shop to replace it.

These are not resistors
resistors have R infront of the numbers e.g r14126

If there is burnt resisters then its best to take for repair to isolate the problem that caused it to burn up. If there is one then there could be more, but if you feel that that is the only one the you would have to take a soldering iron to take it out. To find right resister then there should be a number on it or color coded.

    Take the number and go to Radio Shack or a local electronics repair company. To replace them parts you will have to know how to solder. You must heat each contact and do it quick enough to get them all out. If you dont know how to do that you would need to take it for repair. If you do it yourself and mess up you run the risk of scortching the board.

Burning smell


Sounds like there is an electrical problem. Its probably in the ac / heat system. I would suspect the blower motor resistor or blower motor is going bad.

Convergence Resistors keep burning up


Some simple advice---if resistors are smoking one of the chips is shorted----The set has two voltages that go to them--one a positive voltage and one a negative voltage.

If either chip is shorted you can replace the resistors all year and not get anything. The resistors are protection in case one or both chips short----

Remove all old heat grease and install two new chips and replace the resistors at the same time.

Note that the set may have pico fuses on the power board also.

The tv smells like a burning wire


Can you describe where the odor is coming from. Is it coming out from the side panels on the tv set itself, or perhaps the plug, on end of the main power wire. Check around the electrical outlet. Make sure nothing else is plugged into the same outlet. It sounds as if some of the electrical components on the circuit board are burnt or burning out. Tv may have experienced a power surge, etc. Check also if the power plug is heating up. Be careful and smell around top side vents on tv. Be sure and unplug the set before leaving it unattended if you cannot locate the source of the "burning wire smell."

hi,
may be ur tvs lamp side have some problem. may be the lamp over heated and burned. just open its lamp cover ann check it.
also check its power supply input point(near fuse) there is an MOV (used for voltage surge protection) is burned or not. if there is any voltage surge it will get shorted and the fuse will blow off, protect the power supply for any further damage. check the fuse also. if found open then check the MOV. insert fuse only after replacing the MOV.
ok

Burning and fan type sound


That is probably the power section about to fail. The burning smell is going to be from overheating components. You will have to take it into either an akai repair depot or a local tv repair and have it looked at. Get an estimate first. The repair cost on this could be cheap if itis obvious and the repair gys are on the ball or it can be pricey if they just replace major parts (typical). Also have a good idea of what replacement cost is so you know if it is worth fixing.
