Samsung DLP HL50a65 Turns on and off, funny smell


I am amzaed you have had it for 3 years, this usually occurs about 18 months from purchase. Samsung, however are good to deal with than most.
Stop turning it on in the hope it will self reapair. It is more likely to self combust! The capacitors on the sustain boards have died, expanded and possibly split.
This is generally as a result oif poor components ( made in korea or china) being used to keep the price down. However the life expectancy is compromised.

This is not a DIY repair ( many have tried this option only to find it does not work out . Mainly becausde all 3 boards are recommended for chaning and they need to be set up correctly with the right feeder voltage to each of them.

an estimated repair cost for your set is in the $500 dollar range

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Samsung DLP TV HL50A650 switches on and off


more than likely, the power level is too high for the TV. Make sure the votage switch on the back of the set matches what you are plugging into. For Example, in the US the set needs to be set to 110v, Europe is 220v. If you're getting a burning smell, it might be too late. That tells me that the amount of volts to the TV is greater than what the set is expecting.

50' rca projection tv


your high voltage splitter is probably bad, or you high voltage flyback transformer (deflection board). not sure of your model #, is it correct? It may be a lamp but you shouldnt smell burning. You can unplug and let it discharge and find where the burnt up parts are to find your problem. Follow your nose, it always knows!

High-voltage can hurt/kill you.. be very careful

TV shuts off by itself and has a burning smell


mine is doing the same thing but i was able to pinpoint it to a capacitor arching and smoking. haven't replaced it yet so i'm not sure if it's just a bad capacitor or a more involved issue.

Panasonic WIDESCREEN 52" hdtv: power tries to come on and then there is a burning smell. The power button LED on the TV flashes several times. This starting happening after the TV was on and suddenly...


check of fluid leak from the tubes, check to see where the burning smell is comming from. could be anode, hv wire, splitter, surge caps in h-circuit, but it sounds like a high voltage transformer.
what is your model number of your tv?

T.V. TURNS OFF


Sounds like somethings over heating if you smell something. The wise thing to do if you know nothing at all about the tv repair is to call someone unless you feel convident enough to open it and look around very carefully and see if you can describe whats over heating or burning as if you keep turning on the set and it keeps smelling it will burn something out thats not burned out now.
