Hi,

I am Sorry to Hear regarding the Problem.You first would need to disassemble the screen to examine the mirror and lens. The mirror is probably the most important thing to keep clean, and you can clean it with any foaming glass cleaner or a 50/50 mixture of 92% pure isopropyl alcohol (from any drugstore) and distilled water. Use a clean terry cloth towel.

But if that doesn't correct it, you may have to call a tech. You may have a problem with the light engine, and it may not have had anything to do with smoking. Unfortunately, many rear projection digital TV's are developing problems with light engines, and not just Hitachi, and that's why I urge anyone who buys a current technology HDTV to get an extended warranty. All of these TV's, regardless of whether it's plasma, LCD, or rear projection, have large and expensive assemblies that cannot be fixed, and must be replaced.

But definitely check the lens and mirror first.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    You never mention the Make and Model of the TV. But, if that's Mitsubishi,the procedure is :-

    Turn power off and unplug.

    Remove screws on rear at top and on both sides of the screen.
    Remove speaker grill.
    Remove screws on each side of the screen where screen meets the speaker area. Remove two screws in center area of speaker area under screen.
    Lift screen up and away from set housing.

    Clean the mirror.



    Yes, you could use Windex.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks

My gas pool heater was running, then it made a whoosh sound and went out. I restarted it and it fired ok, but there is smoke coming from the exhaust.


If its steam or white color you may have a leak in the heat ex changer dripping water on the burner. The "whoosh" sound may have been when the leak started and put the burner out.

Tv went crack while watching. Picture and sound went out & red light flashing.Waited a min,turned off and back ok with picture and sound returning concerned if we should continue using or not?


Hello,
As long as you can see and here the picture with no problems you should be fine. The tv's put it heat which make things expand and contract. Sometimes things creek and crack. I've had two tv's that do that. Don't hesitate to keep a fire extinguisher handy though along with some alarms.(houses should have these at all times anyways)

Toshiba 50A61 have sound but no picture - all fuses check okay


Not too many--if sound is developed from the set and not a surround system the set will blank the 3 picture tubes for a few reasons:

Voltages missing at the tubes (high voltage or screen voltages etc)

There is a loss of vertical sweep or horizontal sweep--set will do here this to prevent an INSTANT burn mark on all 3 tubes.

One thing you can try to look for is to see if the filament in each tube is lit---rather dim as 6.3 volt one---if lit the above reasons are your problem.

Without a meter, a schematic etc not much more you can check.

You should hear a faint whoosh sound when you power the set on--the high voltage coming up.

Whooshing sound coming from front tire


Sounds like a few things. Flat spot on the tire. Something caught in the tread. Jack up the vehicle and turn the wheel by hand and see if you can recreate the sound, if you can you will find the problem.
