Question about Televison & Video
TV was working, it then stopped and a arcing sound could be heard. Power stayed on buy I isolated it straight away. Check back of unit and tried to restart after waiting about ten minutes. Blue arc was seen from right (of the three) "module" at the base of the screen.
I have never had an issue with the set in the past.
Is it repairable or is it dead?
The flyback transformer or the "spitter" has a problem and should be replaced. Figure on about $100 for the part(s) and the local labor charge as the cost. Call around. This is a simple diagnosis as the insulation has broken down in the part.
