The TV started smoking. Thought it might be dust. doesn't appear to be.


Your tv is burning part of it's electronics. Turn it off and unplug it. Either take it to a repair ship or replace it.

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

NOTE:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

The tv keeps turning off after smelling smoke, the color went bad just before the first time


If you smell smoke from the TV turn it OFF and UNPLUG it before you have a real fire. Something is drawing too much current, or it has a short. It is doubtful that someone with out knowledge of electronics could or even should try to diagnose and repair an electronic item that smokes.

When you turn it on, the power light goes green, as it should-- then switches to red, as it does when it is off


Your tv is going into "shutdown" mode for one of many possible reasons. More than likely you will need a new circuit board. The only possible way to correct it yourself is to unplug unit from it's power source and hope it resets. Allow 5 mins. before restoring power. Do-it yourselfers can get prices online using part numbers from board. This can save service center's parts markup. Hope this helps, good luck.

NO PICTURE, NO SOUND, TV TURNS ON THEN TURNS OFF


STOP THE PRESS!! I FIXED MY TV for a whopping $26.

I took a wild shot and purchased two STK392-110 convergence amplifiers from http://www.electronix.com/. They ship fast, placed my order on Tuesday evening after coming here and placing my comment. To my suprise the parts were in my mailbox on Friday. The parts were actually $12 but I also picked up a iron and a solder sucker.

So rarewish4us, If you're in the South Florida area I'd be more than happy to take that "JUNK" off your hands. LOL
If I were you, I'd give it a shot before you junk it.


Good luck,
Howie

HELP! Fire Hazzard!


It sounds like your focus/screen block, the flyback transformer, or maybe a CRT anode lead is leaking high voltage. This could be a serious problem, or could be a simple one. You should not attempt this repair unless you know all of the high voltage safety issues involved with this TV set. Good Luck
