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.

Hi guys. Smokes coming out of the back/top of my tv, and their is a faint buzzing noise.


Power off the t.v., wipe away any dust, let it sit unplugged for a few hours. Check for burning smells when you turn it back on, and before you turn it off or unplug it. Smoke should not be coming out of the t.v.

The smoke could just be hair and dust. If you can stick a vacuum hose on the vents of the t.v.and use compressed air (don't hold the canned air upside down) you might be able to break some of that up, and get it out of the t.v.

You can open it up and try to get rid of dust, but if it's an old t.v., you're probably better off getting a new model for cheaper than repairing something could cost, and few things are as expensive as replacing a t.v. that catches your entertainment stand on fire.

Heater and aircon not working,loud rattling noise and smoke from vent,now not power to fan


It appears your fan itself burned out. When a field coil of an electrical fan burns out it usually makes a lot of smoke. The noise could be something that fell in there that stopped the fan from turning freely. I can imagine it heated up under the strain and burned out.

When you restarted it was burnt out so hence no noise and no fan.
The smell of the smoke should also be clue. Electrical field coils burning has an awful soury type of smell.

While starting my vaccum cleaner big noise and stream is coming . it is dead?


No Brand? I think you mean big noise and smoke? Smoke can be from a burning belt or dying motor. If it smells like burning rubber you likely have something jamming the brush roll. Otherwise suspect the bang came from a motor fan. Do not attempt to run. disassemble and inspect
