Last night our Time Warner cable went down. The internet service returned but our 2004 27 inch Zenith TV will not turn on i.e. no picture or sound. The switch seems to activate as a click is heard and...

I think that the unit is going into protective shutdown because it has detected an internal problem. I would suggest that you invest in a detailed repair estimate that will cost about $100-$150 depending upon your location. It might cost even less, especially if you take it in. You could also contact Zenith and see what they might say about this problem first before taking it in.

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.

DLP TV Samsung HLP4674w No Picture

If you hear a ticking and or buzzing sound as it is trying to start up then most likely the replacement lamp is bad. Take it out and reseat it one more time to see what happens. The noise you hear is the ballast attempting to fire the lamp up.

Toshiba tz50v51 popping sound

Possible problems: * The TV set may be unplugged. * A fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or switched off. * The remote control unit (RCU) may be disabled. Solutions: * Make sure the TV/VCR are plugged in and the wall switch is on. * Check the fuse or circuit breaker. Test the outlet with a lamp. * Replace the RCU's batteries: if this fails exchange the unit.
