Re: Flashing

Pop and flash meaning that the picture turns on and off? Many people's tv eventually just turns off all together. Furthermore, if you notice a crackling sound, it isn't just the sound of the tv turning off, it is the sound of sparks and flames emitting from the back of the television. Take notice of this as it is a fire hazzard. If you do notice this, please report the problem to the consumer product safety commision. I beleieve this common problem with large sparks and flames warrants a recall.

My husband was watching the television and it just made like a small pop sound then the little blue power light started flashing and the two red lights that say temp and lamp started flashing, what is this...

Lamp seems popped and requires replacement.
Lamp replacement procedure is written on user manual of TV.
Let me know model number of TV if you need user manual copy.

I have a 6 year old Samsung PCJ522R 52" TV.

It sounds like at least one of 3 "IHVT",s popped. in short, a "IHVT" is a high voltage transformer. It will have to be replaced along with any other parts that were damaged in the process.
They do produce a strong odor when they pop!!

It is repairable but at a price. there is a good chance that parts will have to be ordered.

you might consider buying a new LCD HDTV instead of fixing this one.

Flashing color in and out with popping sound

This sounds like the solder joints have cracked on the AFT can inside the tuner, a common Sony problem. Removing the tuner, opening it up and resoldering the grounds and small transformers inside should clear it up.
