Can you remove the rear panel and check if the hissing is coming from the flyback? Which is a large transformer with a large red wire coming from the top of it? If so can post a link where you can get a replacement their not exspensive and their easy to replace. If its not coming from the flyback post a picture of where the hissing is coming from and I will identify the parts for you, But I feel its the flyback due to the hissing. respond to this same post so I have your correct model number when you reply.

Unplug set and do not plug again---something has burned so there is a risk of fire---unless you are familiar with fixing sets consider having a tech come out or take set to a shop for a estimate.

Tv all the sudden wont turn on and wires smell like they are burn


What worked last night and last week does not play any role on what works now. The issue here is power supply that you smelling, and that crackling sound backs it up. Now you have choices but there not all in your favor and you got to expect that when it comes to repair as its going to put a dent in the wallet.

Powerboard/deflection unit $250 plus labor..

Plus whatever got burned inside during this whole ordeal. Concider this: Cost of new verses Repair of old. Also a new tv will give you its life plus 3 years warranty to boot, this tv will give you 90 days after its fixed on the part only, after witch other things can go wroung.

I agree with repair only if your willing to pay for it. There are Quality repair places like www.teexp.com click and check if they can come to you if not you need to check you local listings for a tech locally.

diagnosis: power/deflection unit
Prognosis: 90 days parts/? Labor

please be considerate whren leaving positive ratings and feedback today.

the static sound may be due to a defect in the high voltage circuits, IE Fly-back transformer or and voltage multiplier, posibly high voltage leads to the CRTs arching to ground, finally horizontal sweep circuits

SMELLING, HISSING AND NOT TURNING ON....


Whenever there is a a spark or a flash it generally means high votage(HV) is arching either from the flyback, one of the CRT's or HV splitter/Focus block where the HV is created - It will be easy to diagnose but probably expensive to repair. Parts costs- Flyback and HV block $100-200 and CRT over $300

Hissing popping sound


It sounds like the flyback or the HV splitter those are the two items that will hiss. It should be coming from the area where the flyback is. thats a large transformer with a large red wire coming out of it going into a Splitter that will have 3 additional large red wires each going to the three CRts. Let me know if you need the part numbers and where to get the parts with free tech support so you can easially install them yourself.
