Question about Samsung PCJ522R 52" Rear Projection Television
The red color started shadowing and flashing. I tried the convergence, it was fine. Over a few days it grew worse and started flashing red streaks, then the whole screen became red and a loud POP sound and a hot smell came out. The screen went black. Is this a repairable event? The TV repairman is booked out 2 weeks...
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.
