My AKAI PDP5016H 50" plasma TV turned off suddenly and wouldn't come back on. When it happened we heard a "Fizz" or "Pop" sound. I took it apart looking for a bad capacitor or obviously fried component. When powered on, not even the standby light would come on. When I couldn't find anything wrong I called my electrician neighbor who looked at it with the power connected and started looking at the fuses and started jiggling cables.

When he jiggled one of the cables, the TV came on! It was a bad cable connector on a power supply board. Look at the photos to see the problem:

The circled area is the problem board and on the second photo the arrow points to the power connector that was bad.

Disconnect the bad cable and find a connector that is identical (try RadioShack) and replace it.

Now I hate to tell you that the solution was to open up the back of my TV, connect the power, turn on the power switch, and start jiggling cables - But it was! You may get yourself electrocuted or worse by doing this, so BE CAREFUL!

Here's a clue: on the bad connector on my TV the connector itself had become discolored brown as if it had been cooked or something. Once the my electrician buddy jiggled that cable the LEDs on the main power board came on and the TV made it's characteristic "coming on" noise. In your instance it may be a fried cap or a lot of other things. Keep an eye out for anything that looks out of place or funky.

GOOD LUCK!

While I was watching my Emerson TV I heard a loud click and the screen went black and audio went off. When I press tv button on cable remote the tv button glows red, and nothing happens on the tv.


Hi the power supply might have shut down through overheating turn the power of at the wall socket & wait for a short time before trying again the TV might reset itself if this doesn't work its probably shut down from a faulty component. good luck

Hitachi clu-4591av stopped working - popping sound


The power supply regulator section should be troubleshooted. The "Pop" sound you heard might be of a bursted electrolytic capacitor in the AC mains rectifier section inside the TV. All the related commponets, rectifier diodes, protection zener diodes etc:- should be checked before switch ON the TV further.

I heard a pop and screen wet black. red lamp


Lamp inside TV is broken and requires replacement. Pop sound was its breaking sound.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual, pretty easy.
Please buy Sony original lamp for TV safety and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamp.
Let me know if you need to download user manual copy.
Thanks.

TV acts like it is turning on then shuts off then repeat, repeat


When my lamp died the bulb literally exploded. That may be what you heard. Have you check the lamp? If the lamp is ok, the lamp's ballast or power supply might have blown.

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.
