Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

KF50WE610 SMELL OF BURINING PLASTIC AND NO picture

I just bought a new bulb for the tv and after 2 days the bulb went out and now i smell burning plastic and the tv does not display any picture.
I hate to spend $500 on a new television set instead of purchasing another model, but at the same token, if i can spend some money on getting it fixed, using an online resource like this--I would be more than willing to compensate someones expertise.

Can you help me with this problem?
Thanks for your support.

Double check bulb, if not correctly in could have melted its housing. Might need a new tv.

Smells like burning plastic


Probably the odor from the new lamp. It should disappear shortly.

"pop sound", picture out, burning smell...?


Usually, yes. A bulb that has audibly 'popped' will be apparently bad if you pull it out of the TV (shattered). Other times this is a lamp ballast board.

MAGNAVOX TV BURNING SMELL TV WENT POP AND WENT OFF


Well that pop had something to do with the power components inside the TV frying. I would have to say there is nothing you can do to repair it as its dangerous to work on such things.
I wouln't waste my time bringing it to a repair shop they will probably tell you to just buy a new one.
