Sounded like a light bulb burst...

A friend of mine has a p52960 52in tv and she was watching it and heard a pop (like a light bulb burst) then she smelt a metallic smell. Do you happen to know what it could be and how we can fix it?

Sounds like a capacitor blew or the Flyback has shorted. Does the power led light up when power is pressed?

    have you checked inside the cabinet to see if you can see a capacitor blown?

    Heres a picture of what a capacitor looks like they are just little cans.

    They will either be swelled up, or stuff coming out of the bottom or they can actually be loose laying in the chassis.

I have a 60" Sony


Hi,
It seems lamp/ bulb popped again, check lamp inside tv.
If tv does not show red blinking light then it would be lamp that knocked off, replace lamp in tv to fix its problem, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Samsung HLR5078W pop sound followed by a loud buzz then shut down


Your lamp burst. This model uses a lamp housing which does not have a filter screen on it. When the lamp bursts, hot pieces of glass and mercury (very toxic) drop straight down into the cooling fan below it. Although FixYa.com (implies I'm suppose to tell you how to fix it) I am going to tell you to call a servicer and have them clean that mess out of there. It's a health issue, I don't want someone unknowingly exposed to mercury on my watch. Let the servicer know what he is getting into. I hope this helps.

If you still have red light , it means the temperature of the lamp is too much. Did you buy the original part number of the lamp.

Sounds like it could be your power supply board. Same kind of issue i had. Try unplugging your tv completely for an hour.

Nothing happens. power on,can hear click


I had the same problem, but I saw the events leading to it. I was watching TV, went to help the wife, heard a pop, came back to find the TV off. Turned it on, heard the same click you described. I believe you need a new bulb. Mine lasted around 2 years of heavy use. Bought two on ebay. Make sure to consult your manual for the particulars on the bulb.

You need to replace the lamp in this set. The "pop" you heard was the lamp popping.

No picture, hear sound, television will shut off after a few seconds.


Lamp life is only a few thousand hours. Hopefully its only the lamp that made to noise. Don't turn on again until lamp is replaced.
