The pop noise was the fuse on the power supply board. You cannot use part substitutions like you are thinking. The only model substitions that you can use are all p60s30XX

SOURCE: loud pop when trying to turn on my samsung

So common its almost criminal! so many sets like this all made in rice paddys. 2000 of them on FIXYA alone.

When fixing electronics it is never the obvious componenent that just needs replacing. If a fuse blows in the house and you replace it only to have it blow again what does that tell you? It wasn;t a faulty fuse!

So in this case it wasn't the resistor that was at fault, it could be any number of components within the circuit and more than likely the IC that was close to this resister and near some capacitors that are also possibly in breach of their acceptable voltage handling. Non of this is DIY for the average joe. If you don't have a service manual or the tools to trace voltage and circuits then leave it to the professional. So many on here jump in doing professional work without really knowing much other thanbeing a board or part jockey and end up costing themselves much more money than having it done propely the first time and without the risk of electrocution, further damage to circuitry that will result in a fire or even a dose of radiation. YOU may have some idea of what you are doing but are you truly knowledgable with electronics?

Better to have the job done properly the first time, Sure there is cudos if you do get it fixed, but looking at the number who come back on here because it failed after a wekk or even the next day It does not seem to be many success stories from what I read everyday

I am sorry for the lecture here, but there are so many who if they took it to a professional would have saved on it rather than ending up paying 3 times the outlay and extra downtime

Thanks for using FIXYA

Without investigation it is impossible to know what failed. There are a number of boards in that set where there is fairly high current used. It is possible that some components have failed.

The Panasonic service rep would service the set by swapping out the failed modules. If the set is an older model the modules may no longer be available. You can take the set in for an estimate to see if the parts are available, and to see if the set is worth to service.

SOURCE: Blinking red led light when I plug in the tv then it turns right

Phillips purchases the main circuit board from Samsung, and it has a problem with capacitors failing. The failed capacitors can be easily identified as the top will no longer be flat, but will have bulged up.
If you have a local TV repair shop they can help you.

That can be caused by either the SC or SD board. Contact the people at they can assist with proper diagnosis and they also should have the replacement board

Panasonic Viera tc-p65s2 - 7 blinks, won't turn on

I had the same problem with my Viera. if you disconnect the power and ribbon cable from the YSUS board (check youtube for how), the light led will blink 6 times, indicating the YSUS is bad. Check ebay for TNPA5175 board (about $115-160). The pop is one of the DG402RP chips burnout. These are about $4, but only available from China. If you can wait a month for delivery, you can solder the new one to replace the bad one. You may want to purchase several in case more are bad or it happens again.

10 blinks for this tv is not always an A Board issue. It can be a problem with the power board as well. A technician should look at the set to dertermine where the problem lies otherwise it is just a guessing game of inni minni miny moe.
