I have a question. My tv stopped working after playing with the outlet, of hooking it in and out to move cables around. it just popped and left a brown mark on the outlet plate. I took apart my tv and saw the fuse was blown. So i replaced the fuse and everytime i plug it in the darn thing pops right away. i hear the tv coming on and ''pop'', i replaced it several times. What you think i can do. BTW it's not an iLO or anything. i'ts a sylvannia. been working perfect until then.
Check power supply transisters possible shorted
and check transister next to ht runs picture may be shorted also check diodes 4off runs ac to dc
changover , this possible causes the fuse to blow , allways be carefull when pluging any
electrical item in
please let me know how you go thanks jeff..........

Check to fuse box to see if the fuse is working properly. Next, see if the TV "pops" the power supply when pluged into a different outlet in a different power supply area. If the TV works without poping the fuse, the fuse with the original outlet needs replacing. If both outlets "pop", either the electrical system needs checking. Or if this is a new problem that started when you first tried the TV, the TV could be wanting more power than the electrical system will allow. Check the power requiremnets in the TV manual.
If you're any good at repairs I would check for an in line fuse. Check right where the power cord hooks into the TV. They sometimes blow just as you've discribed. If it's blown it's a pretty safe bet that replacing it will fix the problem. There is however a slight chance that something else might have blown it so if you replace it and it blows again take it to the shop. You've got a high 90"s % chance it's a 50cent fuse though. Good luck.
possible that a fuse blew while transferring tv, most like to happen despite care in handling if tv was on for a while, kind of like moving a light bulb that is hot and suddenly filament breaks when you move the bulb slightly. Other than that I'd say it's a good time to get a new tv just in time too for the digital transition.
It most likely is in the power supply in the tv . maybe as simple as pico fuse or reg fuse . You could call a local tv shop and ask them what they charge to look at . average price is 120.00
and of course fuse woud be alot cheaper.
We played Wii sports and fit for few hours than tv started to flicker and change colors to green and black and white. We shut down Wii and not TV screen doesn't show any picture. The power is there and the sound... but the screen is just blue. Any one experienced anything similar?
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?
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.
