Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

My 12 year old Sony KP-53V80 TV suddenly turned off and will not show a picture just a small rainbow at the top of the screen, then a whistling sound, crack and turns back off. can you help?



Answers :

Sounds like the inverter went bad...There's a high voltage device in there that runs the whole "picture" thing. There are capacitors involved with it that have probably failed leading to this mess.. That would be what that "crack" is...If you try to turn it back on does it just "click " and then stay off?

After about 30 minutes of turning on my LG TV 32 there is a loud whip cracking like sound. The tv screen then normally turns pink but sometimes gets the picture back and the whip cracking sound keeps happening. It seems to me that there may be an overheating problem as it is okay when I leave it turned off for about an hour but it keeps on happening again. PLEASE HELP ME.

Hi just wondering if you can suggest a repair for my LG42PC1DV-AA. We have had the TV for 4 1/2 years. Last week when my daughter was watching it there was a loud crack and the screen went blank. After I let the TV cool down I turned it back on and the sound is good but the picture takes a few minutes to come onto the screen. It has a lot of Black lines I guess they are pixles that slowly dissapear and reveal a somewhat grainy and washed out picture. Is it worth getting looked at? Thanks Pete
