Smoke coming out of tv, and bad, burning plastic smell

The picture is a bit 'stretched' out, and sometime screeen 'quivers' or 'flickers'. This has been happening for some months, but yesterday, the tv was on for several hours, and by afternoon, we smelled a horrible, plastic burning smell, and saw light smoke coming out from the top of the tv somewhere. We unplugged it, and have done nothing since.

Try to open the back cover of your tv but be sure to unplug it, then try to look for a bulge up capacitor beside the flyback transformer. if you see this capacitor try to replace it with the same value. feel free to send feed back good day and best regards.

It is not neccasarily dead , WHAT IS HAPPENING IS YOU HAVE A HIGH VOLTAGE LEAK . Sometimes you can repair this by buying some high voltage putty and placing the putty over the point of the leak . Check for broken insulation on the high votage wire usally this wire is red and attached to the picture tube .

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.

Most of the time the cap you speak of tends to buldge at the top of it . The spark you speak of is just the two contacts joining . With the tv unplugged you can clean them with a fine sand paper and blow out any dust if you think this is your problem. The picture tube would not cause this problem , Only real way is with the tv on and looking at the pictures brightness and color . Also this tv shuts down due secondary shorts - vertical problems - horizontal problems . Any more help after you check it out let me know . Good luck

Flickering Picture?


Your set might have a high voltage leak and that is the noise you hear when is showing the screen problem or even maybe an arking too ,either one is related to the high voltage and it can be dangerous,if you are familiar with tv service you can try to see where is arking and replace the part with an exact replacement but if the set has a leak you will not see it and is not safe to be close to it,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.
