    It's a samsung hps 4253 and we acquired the television in the year of 2007

    Need to give the age, make and model please.

    Did you know that smoke is what makes electronics work?

    When you let it out of a part - it quits working!

These are not the most reliable sets to say the least. The power supply portion of the main module has failed and it will be expensive. Fortunantly, this happened while under warranty, yes?
Good luck with Samsung customer service.

It could be the board. Check the capacitors on the board they are small cylindrical shaped parts. Look for any bulged tops on the capacitors which will indicate bad capacitors. Hope this helps.

Screen is blank and orange light stays on


The power supply board failed. Most cause is the electrolitic capacitors. They look like little soda pop cans. These should all have "Flat" tops if you see any with buldging tops? That is the problem . They are cheap and easy to replace. Just remember capacitors and components in general can hold a charge even after being unplugged for months. They can kill you. make sure you use caution. Discharge those caps. The bad caps are usually visable bad. I would replace them. These caps have a negative and a positive. If you put these in wrong? They will either fizz out and smoke or a loud pop and smoke will happen.
Thanks
Give me a good feedback on here please.

My Polaroid flat screen tv started smoking and the picture went off, but there was still sound. What happened and can it be fixed? This tv is only 2 years old.


It can be repaired, however, the cost is probably going to be in the area of $200.00 or so. Unfortunately these were not reliable sets. I have repaired way to many of them to recommend repairing it.

99% chance the problem is in the inverter board that provides the AC needed for the flourescent lamps behind the LCD monitor.

There's a small chance it is the power board.

You can't upgrade a panel tv, plasma or LCD.You may have had a plasma panel failure,I sell LG tv's and for the panel to go bad is rare but I have had it happen approx.6 times in the past 5 years.I highly recommend contacting LG"s customer service they will stand behind the panel and get you going again.Good luck!

Don't recommend replacing the light tunnel if you never had any experience with DLP optical systems. you need to pay careful attention to the way you remove any screws or you will be forced disassembling the engine multiple time to get the alignment correctly.
