Hi there, you do have a big problem at your tv, the loud bang means a part is broken, maybe you will cost 50 % of the original price of your tv. ty

Tv works but no sound

Hello Jjwpod hi, to find where the trouble is, you need to place ear near speakers, you should hear a humming sound, adjust the volume up or down, the humming sound also goes up or down, this means your amplifier is working, no hum means trouble in amplifier.
No hum: trouble in amplifier, speaker connection.
Humming, but no audio: problem before amplification, most likely the Sound IF stage.

My tv is 5 years old, I smelt a burning smell in the room. The tv turns on then you hear some buzzing and crackling and the tv turns off by its self. the picture does not come on at all

Some component has failed inside. Buy something better or pick up another CRT set real cheap. Many people are trying to get rid of them after buying flat panel sets. Not work fixing anymore.

Humming noise when turned on

Humming almost always comes from DC supply problems.A leaky SCR [silicon control recitfiter] transistor [used in a/c to dc power supply], leaky Capacitor [large metal type for heavy voltage\current], bad or value changed bias for SCR transistor, value changed filter resistor and loose transformer[Xformer] that the coils INSIDE vibrate sending a radio frequency [R\F] SIGNAL (like a radio station) into the audio amp section or right into the speakers causing the hum.
Check entire power supply, all filter capacitors, coils, chokes ,transformers (somtimes used to push signal into speakers)

It seems it's one of those "vintage" sets. I don't imagine that the problem is very major since such (older) sets are known to develop bad joints, especially around the larger components (funny, sounds just like a problem that humans have). It might not be necessary to replace the LOPT. Just resolder as many joints as you can see. Usually the ones reponsible for arcing will leave visible signs of burn. The acrid smell you detected was probably ozone (given off when high voltage ionizes oxygen in the air). Good luck, if you haven't already solved the problem.
