Its hard to tell without actually knowing where the smoke came from. I doubt that any of the CRT's (bulbs as you say) caused the issue.

How to tell if ballast is bad on samsung dlp tv


It is a common practice that the ballast to repalce along with new bulb. There is no way to check the internal winding short of ballast. Repalce both at the same time. If ballast has any damage, it will surely ruin the bulb too.

White smoke coming out of tail pipe.


WHITE smoke? Or BLUE smoke? White smoke is usually caused by burning antifreeze (possible blown head gasket). Engine oil burning causes a bluish colored smoke.

Changing the oil two months ago means absolutely nothing to me. I have customers that travel 6000 miles or more in a month. Oil consumption is measured in volume over miles, not volume over months. It is normal for most 4 cylinder engines to use a little less than 1/2 quart in 1000 miles (even more than that for 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder engines).

It sounds like one of the Electrolytic Capacitors in the TV has gone, this can be caused by voltage fluctuations, Ambient Temperatures around the TV and sometimes they just fail for no apparent reason. If you are handy with some basic electronic tools you could open the back of the TV and you would possibly see the remains of the blown component as bits of paper like material around where a capacitor used to be.

Heater Fan Quit working without warning no smoke no blown fuse.


Oh no, say it isn't so. I'm in the middle of the same task on my 85 model. I just got my parts from IPD, which I hope is not the source of your parts. I would start with the fuses and check for a blown one. Make sure you check closely as they can have fine cracks that can get missed.

Any chance you have a loose wire? - with all that have to come out for the repair it's possible you lost a groundwire connection.

Write back as I will have questions of my own on how you got yours put back together.

Sounds like the color wheel shattered. If you google it, you should find information about replacement parts and installation. I had to go through the same thing a couple years ago.
