Screen flickered when turned on then the back of tv made a sizzling sound and then it went out. no burning smell detected.


Sounds like a bad connection at a capacitor on power board. Safety issue, take to shop. Minor repair. Could also be infamous picture tube failure, usually red one.

Tv picture went funny(all curved and blurry) then it smelt of burning and looks like a wire sizzling


Sounds to me like the focus unit has expired or a poor connection on the EHT line.
Check for EHR arcing and don't forget there is in excess of 28 THOUSAND VOLTS there, so be very carefull indeed!!!
If the RHT unit requires replacement, there are several wholesalers who will supply one on description. Just Google the part description or part number, that is useually printed on it somewhere.
Hope this helps.

The smell and sound are that of a capacitor burst. If you open the back cover you will find wax around a cylindrical object. That's it. Replace it with an exactly the same item.

On my 5 year old GE Rear Projection TV, there was a pop, and then a sizzle and then it shut off. Now every time I try to turn it on there is a sizzle in the back and it shuts off after a few seconds. There...


The problem is with the voltage capacitors and transformers on power circuit board.Some of them has burnt off and so only you are having this smell and popping sound.You have to take voltage readings and test power supply components such as bridge rectifiers and capacitors. If there is no voltage rating you need to replace that part if not you have to check the soldering joints and solder it again.

Tv made sizzle pop sound and went out


All depending on the models, but i have seen and work on may units with this problem, there are a few large capacitors on the power supply that are sometimes doubly secured with glue, that in turn becomes conductive and causes faults like this. check all the large capacitors for any low or nil readings and with a fine point probe, carefully remove the glue on the and around the caos, and elsewhere if you see any. Good Luck.

Burning smell and distorted picture


One of the components in the horizonatl deflection circuit went bad like a capacitor,the price will depend on the actual part that went bad and your location,the service call in NY could be 300.00 but in pittsburgh might only be 150.00.I still belive is wort repairing.
