Question about Protron PLTV3250 32 in. LCD Television
I woke up to find my wife searching for the source of the smoke with a flashlight on our TV. I came to find that the smoke was coming from the what I think is the power board? I'm not sure, I'm a technical guy. The sound and the TV still work, but the picture goes out immediately once the TV comes on? Is it the same problem with the burn diode or is it something completely different?
It could be any number of components on the main board/power board which could be frying..But if you are hearing a sizzling sound, it could be something probably like a capacitor or the board itself. Difficult to say unless it is opened. First thing, though, is unplug the TV from the mains as a precaution against fire.
Since you are a technical guy, it shouldn't take you long to figure out what the components are thats burning. However, if your TV is under warranty, I advise against opening up the set as that will void your warranty. However, if its not under warranty, go ahead and open up the set and see what components need replacement, or replace the whole power board itself (if you are comfortable with electronic soldering/desoldering).
