TV Sparks inside case

When I power up this tv it sparks near what looks like the power supply. Bright blue power! Looks cool at night but not as good as the Olympics coverage after 3 times.

I think I would turn it off and unplug it. You could get an estimate on reparing the power supply cord or whatever the problem is or the TV maybe ready for replacement.

Bought a new power supply since the previous power supply looked burned and short circuited. Installed the new power supply and sparks flew inside the Tv right when I plugged it in.


If you look around at where the sparks came from or for evidence of burnt parts inside the TV - not in the power supply - then you will find the fault that probably caused you bad looking power supply in the first place!

Why does tractor runs fine til it warms up then stalls and wont restart til cools down


Check to see if you still get spark at the spark plug wire when this happens, common problem is a "Hot Coil" the coil windings breakdown under high heat and causes a stall until it cools down, just pull a plug wire place it near engine ground with a small gap see if there is a bright blue spark when you crank the engine over. If no spark, or it is weak orange spark..let it cool down then try it again if it then sparks bright blue you have a coil issue and it needs replaced. I have also had key switches over heat and stall the engine as well check your wiring connections on the key switch if its burnt looking there is also a problem.

Apex ld3249 shot sparks out and tripped the breaker


A nasty short somewhere or wrong voltage to set---do not keep plugging it in and tripping the breaker--in fact do not plug in at all until a technician examines it(tell him/her what the issue is).

To answer the question here: Dead short on or across the AC voltage line inside the set most likely of primary side of power supply.

Fuel supply problem in 1998 Landrover Discovery. 3.9 V8


not likely a fuel issue,
try running it in the dark of night , no lighting and look for sparks ,
have the ignition coil tested , be sure it has good ground.
pull each plug and watch the spark ,does it maintain the blue long arc.
tune a am/fm radio to the sparks ignition sound an listen to it
a portable walkman can lead you to the faulty spark,
or just have them monitor the spark at the shop.

Sparks


Where exactly are the sparks coming from? If you remove the back of the TV, can you see exactly where the sparks are coming from?
