Question about Sony KP-53S65 53" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

TV won't show any picture or color

We were watching a show and heard a loud pop and smelled a burned elect. component then the screen acted up and the Tv turned off on its own. I could not turn it on anymore, i hear it click like its turning on and a red light near the power button comes on but theres no picture or color what so ever. if its left on like that for a while, a heavy burnt smell is detected. does anyone know what might be the problem and what i can do to fix it?

    Again the trouble from my TV is this when you try to turn the TV on you hear clicks like normal but no screan or sound and light(timer/stand by) will blink continusly. heavy burned smell is detected when leftmore than 2 minutes.

1St. need to konw how many times the light bilks, it sould bilk a # of times then a short pause then repeat the # of bilnks again & again. The number of blinks is a an error code to help locate the cause of a fault. it is not allways accurate, but it's usually right. give the # of bliks & i will try to get you into the right circuit.

    well if the bilnks have no pattern it will make it harder, since you hear a pop & had a smell the best thing is to start loking in the tv for a blown part. I would start by looking at the power/voltage reg. board. typicaal the "G" board in a sony. look it over well. once you find the blown part try & get the location # of the part. Isuspect it's propablly a transistor or a capacitor. transistors will start with a "Q" for a location caps start with a "C". if you find a blon cap the top will be bubbled or swolen. ( the top will be rounded instead of flat.) if its a transistor it could have blown off the fron of the part, easier to find or could have made a minor crak, alot harder to locate. lastly, if you can smell it getting hot, it may help you isolate where the bad parts are.
    good luck.

A pop is usually a power surge and you blew a board. If you take the tv apart, if this is it, it will be evident by the burn marks. You could have burned out the internal power supply as well.
