Re: 40" cs-40503 Popping noise

Sounds like there is a lot of dust on the crt, itself. This will cause a high voltage "snap" which I think you are hearing. This sometimes happens when there has been a spill of water or other liquid that has run or dripped down on the crt. Usually is not a problem if you turn the power off, unplug the cord from the wall outlet, take off the cover, let it set for a while( just to make sure the Hi voltage has drained off), disconnect and ground the hi voltage lead to assure drain down, then clean the dust off of the crt. Follow the dust off with a damp rag and wipe off all of the remaining dust that you can. Let things dry for a half hour or so. Reassemble and see how it works. I have had several $10 tv's that this process has worked well on. Each one lasted several years at least.

Picture takes 10-15 sec to come on after setting all night. Sound is OK.

If this has been taking longer to come up over time, it is likely the picture tube at fault. Time to look into a new set.

Oversized picture problem

Several possibilities, if you use a set top box to get your signal like a cable box or satellite receiver they will have settings that effect picture size. It could be a high voltage problem inside the TV causing an effect called blooming, if that is it you can usually change brightness and or contrast and see the picture get smaller and larger. I don't recall that set having any customer settings that could give that symptom.

Mitsubishi CS-40503 shuts off while watching.

Could be any number of things, none of them easy to diagnose. Unless your a TV repairman it's probably not worth fixing. It will cost tou more in repairs than a new TV.
