Possible flyback problem. Whats the model nuber of your set?

    Its most likely the flyback or one of the HV cables has shorted out against the yoke. Both are fairly common problems with that model number

    The parts are a little hard to find, so it may be best for a repair tech if they are famillar with LG/Zeniths

Sharp lc-c5277un, tv turns on but no picture, switched the cable to the blue ray input and worked but no other inputs work. Happened before, Costco had me do some kind of reset and worked till today.

your main board that takes all the input is the cause to this problem. you can try to reset the tv by disconecting it from the power outlet, then press the power button on tv (not on the remote) and hold it down for 30 seconds

Power light comes on but no picture at all...

There are several more fuses in the TV, but they are not like the main power fuse. Most of of the time there black with and lead coming out of each end about the size of a resistor. I think there are 9 of them, you will need an ohm meter to check them and a soldering iron to replace them. Good luck Eric.

Picture does not show and power goes off.

There is a capacitor that started out with a bad solder conection and is now burning the board. This capacitor should be replaced.

Exactly same problem just happened today! Only power button on the TV set and remote control works, no sound

I had this problem happen to me today. What i did was unplug the tv for an hour and when i plugged it back in, the first time setup appeared on the tv. The remote and the tv buttons worked fine after that. Hopefully that works for you too.

TV on, sizzling sound, smell smoke, picture goes out but TV still on

It could be any number of components on the main board/power board which could be frying..But if you are hearing a sizzling sound, it could be something probably like a capacitor or the board itself. Difficult to say unless it is opened. First thing, though, is unplug the TV from the mains as a precaution against fire.
Since you are a technical guy, it shouldn't take you long to figure out what the components are thats burning. However, if your TV is under warranty, I advise against opening up the set as that will void your warranty. However, if its not under warranty, go ahead and open up the set and see what components need replacement, or replace the whole power board itself (if you are comfortable with electronic soldering/desoldering).
