While watching the RP it made a buzzing sound and the screen went blank. Something appears to have burned out. I have taken the rear cover off and cannot see anything obvious. Can someone give me some direction on which part it could be. Thanks namaj

Re: will not turn on

Most likely it's the bulb or lamp. Take the bulb out and see if you can tell whether it's been burnt out.

Panasonic PT-51HX40B turns itself off and has no video, no lights

The buzzing noise that you were earing came from a bad ballast, and because of the bad ballast your lamp must have got out also, and that is were you are getting the burned smel from and also that is why you are no longer geteting any picture either.

So in this case you would have to replace the ballast board and the lamp on your tv set.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off

I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

Sony KP-41S3U

Good Day;
On that model look for a small yellow cap, half the size of coin, dime. LOOK very closely and you will see a small burnt spot on the cap. The TV uses about 4 of them, they are 120/110 @ 2 kv. There are located in the high voltage circuit.
This the most common, it could be flyback or HV devider.
Good Luck and Day, big irish.
LET ME know.

The buzz is made by the ballast who's trying to start the lamp who's burned. So replace the lamp. The part number is A1606034B or XL2100. It's very easy to do it by yourself. If you don't have the lamp send me a message on
