TV is flickering and snap crackle and popping..

Whenever I turn my TV on, the picture comes on but it is flickering and making a crackling sound consistently now for about 20 minutes. It seemes once it is warmed up though, the flickering stops. But it seems to be getting worse each time i go through this procedure. Anything ideas on what I can do to make it stop before it pops altogether? I do not have extended warranty. Thanks.

TV made a big popping sound, and then a crackling

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it : That crackling sound could be of the color wheel:The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises. But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is BP9601073A you can find original here: .Have a blessed one!

Picture snaps off, Sound still come through.

A crackling sound could mean that the flyback's insulation has failed and it is arcing inside. If that is the case then it may stop working entirely pretty soon. Take it to a tech as soon as you can, the flyback is a pretty expensive part, however if it blows it can break the set to the point that repairs will not be worth it.
