Question about Televison & Video

Model Pan TH50PX75U Purchased May 18, 2007 at Circuit City,Sore 443. Problem: I do hear "high voltage spark sound" from the unit. A few weeks ago, the spark sound was somewhat weak, but since yester day, the sound is quite loud, as if high voltage wires are too close together,thus jumping incessantly across the wire(s).

By any chance do you have the circuit city extended warranty?
If not you gotta act quick on this its less than a year old... DEMAND a replacement TV of the exact kind or equal to the value you originally purchased from Circuit City... Now listen your going to have to call Circuit City Corporate 1-800-843-2489 its going to take time on the phone... but if your persistent they will give you a new TV "Been there done that" I also return stuff without receipts and only because I make a stink about it do they do it... be mad... Tell them you'll never purchase from them again if they can't make this right for you... Thats an expensive TV do you think they want you telling people "DON'T BUY from them. Try this once you get a real person on the phone lol a representative say "Hello I'm offering circuit city the opportunity to keep me as a valued customer... and tell them how its going to be or Best buy will get the sales on TV/Electronics from now on.

Companies will bend over backwards to keep a customer... its easier to make an old customer happy on a single occasion than to make a new customer happy on his 1st purchase ever.

Last thing I got in the mail was a manuf coupon for "Free Battery of any type"
because my battery went capute after like 1 1/2 years in my truck.. so I told the company if they ever wanna sell me another battery they need to make up for this one.
My original battery was only $59.99 but I got the best one it was $149.99. They were smart to do that because now I'll stick with them and recommend them.

Don't feel like doing any of this just take it to a repair place and attempt to collect on the limted 1 year warranty from Panasonic.

The microwave has power and seems to respond to keypad, but does not heat. I tried many auto and manuel settings. It also makes sort of ticking or scratching sound when turned on.


HI:
The most common reason for no heating is the High voltage diode fails causing the no heating problem, if you are hearing so sort to ticking sound the diode may of come loose from the high voltage capacitor inside the unit and is sparking. I would have the unit checked for loose connections inside the unit, I don't unless you have experience working on microwaves, recommened you try repairing it yourself, as there is alot of voltage on the capacitor circuit of microwaves, at least 10,000 volts at its terminals, and need to be discharged before any service is atempted.

My microwave has a small "d" on the right side of the display. It won't heat anything, but it rotates and sounds like it cooking. This just happened yesterday. It's a 2005


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Microwave only works for a second or two then stops & flashes "F7".


The microwave flashes F7 due to no current being drawn by the magnetron.

MITSU 65" MODEL # 65613 I HAVE PICTURE BUT NO SOUND , ALREADY TRIED THE RESET BUTTON . ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED


I have a similar model, and I had it completely apart a few months ago. There is a power supply that provides power to the motherboard, the light engine, and the sound system, and the lamp (all seperate power taps). It sounds like perhaps someting in the power supply connection to the sound portion of the system is malfunctioning, or that the sound boards themselves have failed.

My unit's problem was the power supplied to the high voltage lamp, a trace on the circuit board was broken, and it was unable to source enough current to reliably start the lamp.

Be careful around the power supply, the capacitors store a significant charge, and they can very easily shock you. I would not recommend disassembly of the unit or an attempt to repair unless you have experience with high voltage electronics. Any dissassembly will void your warranty as well.

My SONY tv KV-XF21M80 produces a continuous sparking sound


The tech is very likely correct. The EHT or flyback transformer can develop hairline cracks that allow leakage of high voltage that exists in this circuit. There are other related components that can also cause this, but the transformer is the most likely. This area in the set also builds up allot of dust also due to the high voltages and this aggravates the issue. I do not recommend operating the set very long this way as it may begin arcing inside and cause more components to fail. Replacing the part would depend on how much you want to invest in the unit. Get an estimate and go from there. Good luck.

Tv trys to start. you'll hear audio for two secounds, no picture, then 8 flashing lights, repeats after a few secounds 8 more flashes etc,etc


There is a problem in the audio circuit or the high voltage circuits. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. Check also the flyback transformer T8005 or the associative components around it or associated with the high voltage circuits on the D board. Try also unplugging the unit for an hour to allow the unit to reset and make the unit work. It sometimes resolves start-up issues with the unit.

You turn on the tv then it turns off right away with no picture displayed could probably used new screen too


The repair of this unit will be determined by the status of the high voltage on initial power up. You need to do a few tests in order to narrow down what the high voltage is doing. You will need someone to assist you.

Unplug the AC cord. Remove the rear lower cover from the tv. Make sure the room is quiet. Put your ear inside the tv being careful not to touch anything metal, although most metal objects are ground. Next, have someone insert the cord into the AC outlet while listening very carefully. What you are supposed to hear is a click which is a relay and high voltage snap up. If you do not hear a swishing sound, which is the sound of high voltage have someone press the power button on the front while you are still listening. If you hear the swishing high voltage sound come on, it will come on and stay on, or collapse. Repeat the test, unplug the cord and plug in the cord to confirm the high voltage is coming on and staying on or coming on and going into collapse.

If the high voltage does not come up at all it means that there is a basic high voltage power supply problem and an experienced technician needs to guide you through a high level repair which is above the scope of this discussion. You may want to contact a skilled technician.

If the high voltage comes up and collapses right away, which is the most common fault, it means that the unit is entering the protection mode. The protection mode is most commonly caused by convergence or vertical sweep system on that model and big screens in general. These repairs can possibly be done by consumers with basic electronics knowledge. If you want to repond with test results we can supply more information on repairing the convergence or the vertical sweep system.

If the high voltage stays up then the likely fault is a power supply problem is muting both the video and the audio causing the unit to go into protect. Consult a service manual, track power flow though out the unit to determine which circuit is impaired.

SAMSUNG 50" HDTV rear projection. Watching TV. Then picture went black; voice remained. Front on-off button flashes "timer lamp". Cannot turn off unit with remote. manual on-off button...


Problem was a burnt "lamp" which can be easily removed. However, it is not the type of component you can purchase at Circuit City, Best Buy or other electronics stores. It must be ordered. I found a few websites to obtain replacement lamps. Cost was $159 plus sales tax. Some websites charge for shipping. I ordered this part from the following site which provided free UPS second day delivery: www.dlplampsource.com. In order to make sure you are ordering the correct part, you must remove the device first which, in my case, had a model/part/code number.
