Last night when we were watching the usopen match, i heard a sound (a medium phoot sound), I could not see see the picture, but the sound was ok, in a couple of seconds, i saw smoke and heard more noise from the back. I went and immediately pulled the power chord. I could see a lot of smoke from the back. After 5 mts, I attempted to reconnect the power chord and saw more smoke, and the sound was OK. Please help

There is something else you can try if the set has not been "serviced" for several years.
This model has three picture tubes with large black lens on top of each, if the set is in a dusty area and the lens have never been cleaned, dust on the lens will gradually make the picture duller and darker.
Unplug set and remove back cover, see if you can see the three large lens and if so wipe them clean with a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on it.
Leave the back off and try to power the set on...be ready to pull the plug. Whatever is sparking/smoking is your bad part. On this TV I would suspect the flyback transformer or grey rectangular polyester capacitor mounted in front of a heatsink on the left.
sounds like the flyback, That model is famous for thr flybacks burning through. If it is indeed the flyback thats a repair which is easy and you could do it yourself for under 50.00 Go to the following link leave them a email with your model number and sympton they have your flyback for less than 50.00 with free shipping and free tech support.

You need a new replacement flyback. They cost about 50 dollars at the following link , and they provide free tech support so you can do the repair yourself which takes about 30 minutes from start to finish and requires only basic soldering skills. Heres the link. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
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
