Re: Tv wont turn on

The loud pop was a capacitor blowing up or the high voltage transformer blew up. Very common problem.. if its the Transformer be expected to pay 250 or more to have repaired.

Re: Tv wont turn on

Our RCA did the same thing but we found out it was the fuse that made the pop. We replaced it but it keeps doing the same thing I am waiting to find out how to remedy this.

Tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on

If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.
