Arcing blue sparks internally

Hello,I have a problem with my grandmother's tv.Sanyo DS 24425, started arcing blue sparks in the circuit board between what looks like a capacitor (grey w/ 2 red & 1 green stripe)to an picture adjuster with several wires and 2 adjustment knobs on it marked focus and screen. Where the capacitor(?) attaches to board is marked R405 on one end and R407 on the other. There is no picture/image. Any ideas? Repair procedure or cost estimates? Help- Thanks to anyone for their time. Jeff

The thing which you have seen is resistance not the capacitor. whenever that goes hot or arcing it is due to heavy short ckt in tv. as you are not much aware of tv technology please caall skilled person to do it for you. please now do not start again unless it is repaired. otherwise it may be problematic. good luck.

Sparks means short circuit to the main board of the TV, I would advise to get a new one also get the wall outlet checked before you install new one get the earthing checked too.

Why does circuit breaker spark when turned on?

Under most conditions, sparks occur between contacts of switches, circuit breakers, etc. during the split instant between fully closed and fully open positions (these sparks are really refered to as arcs or arcing). This instant is the point when the full pressure of the internal spring-loaded mechanism that is pushing or pulling contacts together or apart; is not yet felt. This pressure is usually felt only in the fully closed or fully open positions.

The brightness and duration of the arc is directly tied to the amount of power is being switched and the condition of the contacts themselves (contacts become pitted and dirty over time and arcing becomes more noticeable). Many larger switches and circuit breakers employ specially engineered arc flash suppression techniques and materials as the intense heat from the arc is destructive to ordinary insulated switch materials. Ordinarily, the arcing should not be visible to the naked eye.

Here\'s a video of an incredible arc at a power switching station when the switch is opened.

I have unplugged because of smell and i could hear a crackling noise, i have completely unplugged but smell is getting worse, i the tv is 10 years old

It sounds that there is some arcing takes place inside it. High voltage arcing will produce and Ozone smell. Contact any TV technician. Never use this set at this condition. It might lead to more fault to internal circuit components.

No acceleration when i press the pedal,lights on in the dash board.but the engine starts.

Start the vehicle in the dark, at night is easiest, look for arcing (sparking) components- replace those that are arcing.

If nothing is seen- give it a tune up.

Arcing inside no picture

Most times arcing like this is from the Horiz. output transformer (flyback). The insulation has a break down and up to 30 KV will find the nearest path to ground. This would require a tech. to repair the unit. This repair will most likely cost around 250.00.
