Re: Smoke out of TV
My father used to have a saying, "All electronics run on smoke, you let the smoke out of them and they don't work anymore"
Televisions are one of the most complicated devices ever invented by the hand of man. Modern sets seem simple due to the chips that perform very complicated functions.
I would suggest finding a local repair technician that has access to the parts your set may now need and the test equipment required to track down some of the more difficult problems that occur in televisions.

I think that the problem of your tv is the flyback transformer. The noise you are hearing is the high voltage, it is leaking from the flyback transformer. The smoke you see may came from the flyback or the capacitor. To be sure to the problem, try to remove the back cover of your tv but be sure to unplug it. Try to plug it, then turn on your tv but you should turn of the light so you could see the high voltage that is leaking but be very careful when doing it.
Probably going to cost more than a new one is worth, and then you have still got a "Fixed" unit & in my experience once things start to fail there often is a domino effect. Still if you can get a free "Quote" for a fix, get one and see?
dont fear the smoke behind. firstly open your tv. get a brush and clean the in side,it might be other particals dropped in side.
you are able to see where the smoke is coming from.
a qualified tech will solve that without wasting time on it.
Magic smoke GONE! Seriously, the main power supply has failed, and requires service. You are probably well past the warranty period, but check with the TV's service center - that information should be in the documents that came with the TV.
The smell of something burning is not a good sign. The clicking sound you are hearing could be a relay or breaker kicking in and out as a result of whatever is wrong.
This could be cause by:
1. A problem in the power supply.
2. A problem with the Horizontal Output Stage.
3. The Flyback transformer.
Someone gave me a TV once that had the same problem. I determined that it had a bad flyback transformer. I replaced the transformer and the TV worked about 5 secs before I saw some black smoke come out of the new flyback. I turned it off right away and realized that something else was bad that caused the original flyback to burn up. The same thing was causing the new flyback to go as well. It turned out to be a shorted, 50 cent hi-speed switching diode. Fortunately, because I had turned the set off quickly when the 2nd flyback started to smoke, once I replaced the diode, the TV was fixed.
If you want to get it working again, you'll need to have it serviced.
The G35831AT uses the CTC179 series chassis. When you touched the wires to the speaker jacks you probably somehow managed to short out the audio output IC, which would have sent up some smoke. When the set is turned on, the computer senses that the audio output IC is shorted and shuts the set down. The audio output IC should be replaced and all other circuits checked by a qualified tech familiar with the 179 chassis.
