The lamp is most likely needing replacement. Replaceing the lamp is a very easy proceedure on that model.I am pasting a pic where the lamp cover is located on rear cover. Remove the screw and the lamp is behind the lamp door.
Yeah could be expensive if it isn't the lamp.
Mind you could be a little easier, might just be a fuse on the video relay. If you are confident in being able to open it up, check the relay that runs from the video input to the power capacitors and there should be a small fuse along that circuit.
If the fuse has a broken capsule then you may just be in luck. Failing finding a broken fuse, then I would agree with you on the bulb. But check the blub for any markings or cracks because they usually only make noise when the vacuum fails.
Hope this helps and good luck mate! :D
Hi you probly have a high voltage parts crack /sometime its the high voltage from the fly back
to the yoke plug or its cracked device like the screen and focus adjustement module.
dont leave it pluged in the wall, unplug it could make dammage to other parts
hope that help you
Looks like we all got screwed with this TV. Mine just started after 2 years and now it's getting louder. I think I rather call my lawyer than Tech. This product is NOT build properly and someone should let the company know about it.
Check the vertcle yoke pins for solder cracks. Check verticle output circuitry resistors and transistors. And also check for Coolant leaks from the CRTs this happens alot. Check capacitors for any signs of sweeling or heat as well.
Sounds like the High voltage is leaking out and arching somewhere. Have a look in the back and see where it is BUT be CAREFULL!! This is enough voltage to cause serioud harm to you. If you have no TV repair experience, this is not the repair to start experiementing with. Play it safe and call out a pro to assist you. Good Luck.
