Prima l080i TV just "burned out" and died! A smell of smoke came out too! When I turn it on there is no picture, and a very faint squeaky noise is heard along with a burning smell. What happened? Help! (I've only had the t.v. for a year and a 1/2!

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.

TV not coming on


You need a Tech to look at this issue. Too many PCB;s that could cause problem. Also for your info., Prima is no longer in business.

My 42 inch plazma screen {prima} started to go all funny and then just went away, still has the sound, i left it on hoping that the picture would come back. all it did was start to smell like over heated...


not necessarily.......my tv stopped working & was able to fix it myself
that smell was something burning out..........obviously
what part though that could be about anything
in mine it was a thermistor...the video section of the tv wont work without it

dont fear the smoke behind. firstly open your tv. get a brush and clean the in side,it might be other particals dropped in side.
you are able to see where the smoke is coming from.
a qualified tech will solve that without wasting time on it.

TV wont power on, clicking noise and flashing standby led


Sounds pretty bad to me, I had a computer monitor that did a similar thing when plugged in after blowing, it's not a good thing. I didn't even bother to mess with it. You may have to replace the whole power board or at least have a whole handful of pieces to re-solder. It most likely isn't worth it unless your other tv's are under 30" and you don't have a lot of money ;)

High pitch squeeling noise/no picture.


your problem is due short circuit in horizontal section of  tv

your problem & smell is due to horizontal section failure.

in that section

1 flyback transformer & horizontal output transistor might be faulty.

but remember to check power supply is normal other wise it may fail again.

for skilled technician it is not a major problem &easy to fix at fair cost.

good luck.

No picture, only sharp, squeaky noise


I'm having the same exact problem with mine! I'm looking for a solution also. I opened up the back of the TV and blew out the dust. Then I checked all connections. I put it back together and plugged it in. Now it doesn't make the high-pitched squeeking sound, but I still don't get a picture. My guess is the picture bulb is burnt out. I'm trying to find one online and am planning to fix it myself - wish me luck!

NO PICTURE, JUST A HIGH PITCH NOISE, SMELLS LIKE SOMETHING BURNING


Very common problem with these sets. The High Voltage transformer and the horizontal output transistor is most likly the problem.. If you know the saftey issues involved and know how to solder and unsolder, you can repair this set but theres a possibility you could also have a fault in the horizontal driver circuit, such as l401. if your not a tech its best to have this set fixed by a trained tech, if you wnt to spend between 175 to 225.00 Good Luck
