Tv wont turn on

Tv would work fine than made popping noises and shut off, now wont turn on, i brought it to a local place they said it needed a new power distribution block, i take it that this is a "high voltage distribution block" ? they want 300+ plus tax that seems a bit much? am i getting ripped off?

Re: tv wont turn on

It sounds like your flyback transformer or voltage trippler is bad

I have a 50ml6200 magnavox. I have changed the bulb twice and tv had worked fine. Recently had our floors done and had to move tv out to shed for a couple of days. Brought tv in worked fine. Needed to move...

the tv got dust when placed out say u need to clean the inside of the light engine, the lamp too but be careful u must use only methylated spirit with a new soft dry bristle brush caution if u touch the lamp with your hands u will shorten its life. the color wheel inside the light engine needs to be cleaned the same way too make sure u do not spill any thing in the components and of course the tv must be off nand left to dry before restarting

Samsung HLS5086WX/XAA made popping noise and shut off, then made whirring noise.

When my TV did this in the past it ended up being the color wheel. I had someone replace it and it worked fine. I asked it if had to be calibrated after it is installed and he said no. Also make sure the door switch is pushed down when you install the back bulb door. Sometimes this switch can go bad as well.

Tv made a popping noise then shut off. wont turn back on

could just be fuse. check fuse near where cord attaches to power board. replace with same type fuse. if fuse is ok, possible power board or main board failure.

T.v. clicking and wont turn on..


The loud pop you heard is usually indicative of a failed lamp. The clicking noise you hear is likely the ballast trying to turn the lamp on.

Your HT Tansfer is giving low votage to the picture tube. Replace the HT Transformer(don't touch or go near it, it carries 11000 Volts!)....sodeep

HD52W59 Won't turn on, makes dwwwwooooop ing noise

Hello TammyTVProb,
I just gave this solution to someone that has the same problem as you, so I hope this helps.
The loud pop you heard was a filter capacitor. The problem now is the power supply is shot, or should I say the capacitor that is connected to that voltage output is blown. You will have to replace it with a new one. I would suggest just for your curiosity, unplug the TV, take the lower panel off (you will need a star head driver to do this) and look at the power supply board (the board on you left side) look towards the middle of the board and you will see a heat sink in the middle of that heat sink you should see a capacitor (or the remains of one). its value is 2200uf 16V (I believe that this is the one that has gone bad), you should also look for others that may have blown also. I would also suggest that you have a qualified TV repair person come to your place and work on this for you, due to the nature of this section of your TV. 
If you choose to do this yourself you will find this useful.  Get a schematic to find the values the Chassis number I believe is ITC222. Here is a link to the schematic:

I hope this helps, 
Thank you,
