Question about Sony KP-51WS510 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Watching tv this morning the screen went white and sounded like a loud crackling noise...unpluged set and removed back to see inside...pluged set back in..do not have to turn power on to see arcing from a circuit board to a taller verticle tower located beside board
Most times arcing like this is from the Horiz. output transformer (flyback). The insulation has a break down and up to 30 KV will find the nearest path to ground. This would require a tech. to repair the unit. This repair will most likely cost around 250.00.
