I went to turn on the tv and heard a cracking noise, like a bug being fried, then a little bit of a flash light and a pop noise. Came from the area of where the plug is on the back of the tv. Is it a fuse or a circuit board? Where are the fuses located so I can check them?

The pop noise could be a capacitor poping its top up.This is a common problem to most TV sets today. Usually located at the power supply board.Once this parts give up it usually shorts the circuit and blows a fuse.Replacements of these parts mentioned will often remedy the problem.Flashing power indicators indicate a problem.If you have the chance of counting how many the blinks are I could have told you the problems code are and the source of the problem.
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.
