Was watching tv, al of asudden something popped

This could be almost anything. I have a tip at which explains the process for finding the problem, walking a non technical person through it and listing places to get parts at a good price. If this tip does not solve the problem it has a link to another tip which explores more problems your set could have. Good luck. Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.

TV turns on with a green screen with curved horizontal lines.

It seems you may have a serious problem with your video board. That's why you are getting those symptoms. It's better if you replace it asap!

TV made popping sound and then shut off

You need to look in your owners manual for the telephone number and order a new bulb. It should cost about $200, but they will ship it overnight and minimize your downtime.

I've replaced 2 in my WD-52525 in the last 3 years, the first one went like yours did, very suddenly, with an audible POP!! The second one was preceded by an orange warning light, which the book says is a warning that the bulb has about 20 hours left on it.

To replace the bulb, UNPLUG THE TV, remove the left speaker screen, with a philips screw driver unscrew the bulb, pull it out by the handle, then replace it with the same type, in reverse order. This is a very easy replacement that does NOT need to be done by a service technician to complete.

Mitsubishi vs 5043

I turned the set on and everything was fine, then the screen went black and mullti-colored horizontal (arched) lines were flashing across the screen. The next day I turned the set on and everything was fine for about 5 minutes then the problem reoccures again. Haven't looked for solutions till now.
