Tv died Watching tv last night and it turned off by itself, unplugged it then plugged it back in. It tried to turn on, then it went black and a flash of white light came out from the back. Also there was a hot plastic smell coming from the back. Weve had no problems with this tv since buying it brand new, any suggestions would be helpful. Thankx

It sounds like the high voltage transformer went bad, There is no fox for you to do unless you have experience and the knowledge to fix and repair solid state TV sets. Play it safe and call out a RCA service center to give you an estimate. Good Luck

Panasonic PT-53TWD63, TV will not turn on, Red power light blinks

It is most deffinately a convergence chip issue. The die for no reason. They can be bought online for around $10 dollars and anyone with experience with soldering can replace them pretty easily. I have done it.

TV WENT OFF BY ITSSELF

This TV has reached the end of its (short) life. Needs to be replaced.

You can try looking at what kind of TV it is, what model, and look at the manufacturer's web site, check for the manual, look up what it means when the green light flashes. Might be a code that means something but I think the TV is dead.

TV WENT OFF BY ITSSELF

This may denote a proble in either your switching powers supply or your Horizontal section derived high voltage power supply. These are both very dangerous sections in your television. My next question is important; do you have a background in electronics? If not I would not advise you working on this problem yourself and that you take the TV to a repair shop for servicing. If you do have some background in electronics, I would like for you to make the following obeservations: What was the TV doing (it actions)prior to it going out? Did you hear any sounds before it went out like buzzing or crackling? What do you hear when you try to turn it on now, clicking? These questions are just to develop some background into what might be happening to your set. Thank you, Shuttle83

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
