I guess loud sizzling was from High Voltage Splitter in your TV. HV seems cracked and leaking high voltage.

You can observe and confirm it by removing back cover and power up TV from distance and check at rear of TV. Please take care and there should be little dark to observe arc from HV splitter.

If this is the case, HV splitter available in Part Store.

Sounds like the color wheel or lamp I would check the lamp first to insure thats its not broken as they can make a pop when they fail sometime (Breaking) then I would check the color wheel you will be able to tell if the color wheel arear has the noise coming from it.

Tv made sizzle pop sound and went out


All depending on the models, but i have seen and work on may units with this problem, there are a few large capacitors on the power supply that are sometimes doubly secured with glue, that in turn becomes conductive and causes faults like this. check all the large capacitors for any low or nil readings and with a fine point probe, carefully remove the glue on the and around the caos, and elsewhere if you see any. Good Luck.

Rca p52770eb wont come on sparks in the back about 2 inches from the power cord inside the tv


On some of the RCA televisions, the Hi Volt transformer will go bad and make a sizzling or popping sound. Most often, it will smell burnt when this happens.

Sounds like it could be your power supply board. Same kind of issue i had. Try unplugging your tv completely for an hour.

The load pop was something blowing in the unit. I would take the tv to a repair center. http://direct.where2getit.com/cwc/apps/w2gi.php?client=rcathomson&template=searchretail_new
