You can replace the capacitor by opening the television with the appropriate instruments (screwdrivers), then you disconnect the board, make sure you take proper note of the steps of disconnection so as not to have problems with reassembling it back together, then you turn to the other side where you have the tips of the capacitor, melt it out with a soldering iron, and replace it with a new one.

Mostly, the lead on the capacitors tip might have melted off due to heat in the television, then the lead causes a bridge to other components on the panel thereby leading to sparking and popping sounds, which ever the problem might be, ensure the lead is properly cleaned up and the capacitor is properly fixed to the panel.

Good luck and take care.

I have a Mitsubishi TV model WD-65C9 and yesterday I heard a pop sound and the screen went black but there is still sound. Is this just a lamp bulb issue?

That pop noise was a so called "CAP" capacitor letting (they actually blow up) go on a circuit board, open the TV cabinet up and look carefully for a burned spot on the circuit boards, it will be small, when you locate that board it may fix the TV is you replace the damaged board.

I have a 42" legend tv with power supply board 667-ps42d8-20, all capacitors look good but i know one or more are shot. Have you ever dealt with this tv and power supply

I just inherited the same tv from my girlfriends parents. They say they heard a loud pop and the screen went black. When I turn the tv on I hear a strange noise coming from the power supply board. It sounds like it is coming from one of the yellow capacitors (sorry if there not capacitors new to tinkering). I have read that it could be the y sus board but I feel like its the power supply board. If you have found any solutions please help me out. Thanks

We turned it off heard a noise and now the red power light just blinks and the power will not come on again. Toshiba TV Model #32SF62 Serial #11100308

what was the noise? POP!

If so then a capacitor on the power board has fried itself. Most problems where the lighyt blinks and nno pic or sound or a breif logo and then black are as a result of a faulty IC or capacitors on the control board

Hello, This is a problem with the power supply board, the pop you heard was a capacitor (it exploded). If you do not have a background in electronics, please have a qualified TV Technician repair the TV set. There are no user repairable parts in the unit. In any event the power supply board needs to be repaired. Thank you, Shuttle83

HP 42" Plasma HDTV PL4260N power turns on/off but processor will not load. No picture, no sound. Unit did make a snap noise at the same time the picture went out.

Try to unplug the power of the unit for few hours. That will reset it. If the same problem still persists, you definitely need to open the TV casing to visually check defect electronic parts like fuse and the power supply board. If you believe that you cannot perform these steps, it's better to consult a pro TV technician or bring it to the nearest electronic service center.

I think that the pop you heard was an electrolytic capacitor blowing its top on the picture frame board. If you are able to check this for yourself by looking on the board for the one/s with a bulging top or are a brownish/black colour like something has caught fire. And also in this situation smell can be of great help as it will smell burnt out but PLEASE before putting your nose or anything else in the tv take all necessary precautions against electric shock and discharge any electrolytic capacitors in the vicinity. If you are not able to do this yourself find a competant technician. Hope this helps.
