Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I was watching the TV, and heard a weird crack sound. The TV went yellow, and when I shut it down, the lights in the front flashed as if I needed a new bulb. I replaced the bulb, and it acts like it can't get started. It makes a weird grinding sound for a few minutes, and then shuts off. The front lights then flash as if the bulb were burnt out.

It sounds like the color wheel has failed and needs to be replaced. I don't know what brand you have but I would find a factory authorized repair center for that brand. You can usually find one by googling the manufacturers' name.

Something is causing the TV shut down or go in to 'protect' mode.
It is unusual to actually hear a component inside the TV go bad, but you obviously did. Probably in the main power supply or something that normally uses a higher voltage in the TV since you heard it..

TV SHUT OFF WHILE WATCHING. UNPLUG AND THEN PLUGED BACK IN. RED LIGHT CAME ON IN FRONT FOR A SECOND AND WENT BACK OFF. TV WILL NOT COME ON.


power in the tv has nothing related with the DVD. The tv has to have raster (white screen) even without signal (cable, DVD, others) if the tv alone is just having the led flashing and neither sound nor video (black screen) The tv has a short circuit in some of the boards that are part of the tv system. the blinking is part of a protection when the tv was created in the factory. Refer to the technician to repair this problem.

Read replace lamp then afew weeks later heard pop noise and now black screen


Two things in your TV can make that popping sound. One is the bulb of course and the other is a capacitor. Have you pulled out the bulb to inspect it? My guess is that you have broken glass in the cooling fan, which is why there is a grinding sound. Most bulbs tend to contain the glass from getting everywhere as it's only the filament inside that pops creating little diamond looking pieces inside the lens. If a surge was strong enough or if the bulb was poorly manufactured, the whole unit can explode inside spraying glass everywhere.

If the bulb looks fine, the pop must've been a capacitor on one of your circuit boards resulting in no display. Since the TV still powers on, your power supply and it's fuse appear to be fine. Check the bulb first and go from there.
