I have a sony KP5375 TV and the screen flashed and went dark. Now it won't turn on and there is a electrical smell coming from the TV. Reset doesn't work. Does this sound like it is more th


yes bulbs dont smell unless they pop plus its 3 bulbs in there, plus the tv would still have power/standby lights, and it's not that type of smell, replace the bulb but im sure this will not fix the problem, also my experience with dlp set it is often not worth repair, good luck you need more help or question just ask good luck

Hi,
Not sure why chat got closed/ disconnected.
There is big transistor TL010 attached with heat sink near flyback transformer, this is horizontal output transistor, check it and replace if found shorted.
Thanks.

When turning TV on, Green Light comes on and then a fizzy, static sound coming from the bottom side of tv. then the green light goes off and then I smell like a burnt electrical smell. Can anyone tell me...


back or front of tv .... this could be a blown tube if coming from front. from back there is a high chance this is a blown flyback. i have also seen a blown capacitor that blows a hole in the board. be careful leave unpluged.

Turned on tv no picture only sound then i heard a pop and smelled burning tv turned itself off. 5 min tried turning on tv again nothing happened tv does not turn on at this time


Your RCA TV needs serious troubleshooting. Burning smell is from HV transformer or resistors smoking.

Most likely power supply and/or high voltage circuit or convergence circuit. Many times RCA have multiple or secondary faults that occur with HV or convergence failure.

Repair of RCA HV or convergence usually requires exact manufacturer parts and upgrades or repair in power supply. I would not advise trying this repair without manufacturer support for correct part numbers and service bulletins.

TV shuts off by itself and has a burning smell


mine is doing the same thing but i was able to pinpoint it to a capacitor arching and smoking. haven't replaced it yet so i'm not sure if it's just a bad capacitor or a more involved issue.
