sony tv no picture

I have a sony 53xbr and I have sound but no pic.

Symptoms started when I heard a pop and picture got blurry and I saw blue and red shadows around features on tv. Then another pop and now no picture. Guns sound like they are firing on startup, any ideas of problem and cost?

Thanks,

Tim

this sounds like a problem in the horizontal section of your tv, i have no idea what the estimate of the repair would be. sounds like some caps blew. need more info to find the fault. geez when i repaired tvs very few sonys came in for repair, now i see more sony problems cropping up.
Is it the quality of sony sets, or are the repairs more difficult?
sounds like b+ voltage of the set is being loaded down.
good luck snuffs

sony check

Is there anything I can look at, like take off the back panel and look for blown fuses or check voltages?

Thanks,

Tim

it appears the high voltage transformer may have have taken a dump on you. yes can look at the fuses, any parts amiss, any scorhing on the boards.
the set is in shutdown, that means smething in the horizontal section is not letting the set sartup. to check the horizontal output trans. by checking the colecteto chassis grnd. if any shorts are present you found the problem.
