Can the TV be replaced? Certainly. Stores are full of replacement TV's.

Can the parts in yours that are smoking be replaced? Possibly. Some parts are generic and can be found at companies that sell TV repair parts. But other parts have to come from the manufacturer, and they are not always available or are too expensive to make the repair worthwhile.

Should you get this TV repaired? It depends on what kind of a TV it is (you didn't give a make or model), its age, how much damage was done by the parts that smoked, and what it would cost to repair compared to replacement.

The best solution is to have a TV technician check the set and give an estimate if it's a large-screen or otherwise costly model (or you just really want to keep the set). Or use this opportunity to replace the set if the difference in price is small.

I have a 1990s JVC tv that we were wattching the other day then we smelled a smoky smell. Then horizontal lines and staticy sound started to go through the tv. We tried canned air to clean the vents a few...


That tv is very close to catching on fire. UNPLUG IMMEDIATELY. When electronic equipment is old they dont just stop working sometimes. Sometimes the electrical current starts burning the wires and the dust inside. there is a definare odor to electronics burning or shorting out. smell around the air vents in the back of the TV. youll know if wires were burning its a distinct odor

Panasonic quintix screen keeps jumping with loud sound


There is some loose solder termminal/s inside the circuit baord. You have to detect them and must resolder them by applying a little more fresh solder. The fault is with loose solder terminals itself.

My tv is 5 years old, I smelt a burning smell in the room. The tv turns on then you hear some buzzing and crackling and the tv turns off by its self. the picture does not come on at all Lwithers4@aol.com


Some component has failed inside. Buy something better or pick up another CRT set real cheap. Many people are trying to get rid of them after buying flat panel sets. Not work fixing anymore.

The little button on the main circuit board may be sticking intermittently causing your set to do this. This little push button was operated by the piece your 3-year old broke off.

Possible short and safety is keeping the set from burning up. A service man should be able to find the short hopefully in a small amount of time.

ProScan PS32500 32"-Picture has white static line & Static/burning smell


It sounds like the circuit board is arching over somewhere. It could be as simply as cleaning and digging out the carbon mark to stop the arching. This is most likely the screen or focus voltage causing this, if there are no parts that have broken down. This will damage the printed circuit board and make things worse the more you let this cook. This could be dangerous for you to mess with because of the high voltage present, so my best advise would be to get this into the repair shop as soon as possible before this board burns up. It should not cost all that much if the CRT board can be repaired. Good Luck
