Hello,

The TV should "blink" a number of times after it fails to start up (the red light blinks a certain number, pauses, blinks a certain number, pauses, etc.). This tell what is wrong with the TV. If the LAMP light is what is blinking, then the lamp needs to be replaced.

Most of the problems with this television are related to the lamp or lamp chamber. If the Television lamp is burned out or worn, or the lamp will not start, then it will not try to come on. There are circumstances where the LAMP light on the front of the TV will not come on, even though the lamp is out. I would try replacing the lamp (which is meant to be user-replaceable). The popping noise you heard could have been the lamp going out.

The lamp chamber door also activates a switch that tells the TV that the door is in place. This switch will sometimes go bad, showing a relatively small amount of resistance, but enough to fool the TV into thinking that the door has not been replaced, causing the TV to shutdown. Make sure that the lamp door is properly replaced if you do remove it. It is no longer available from Sony (too many warped doors from heat damage).

Lamp part number is available in the user manual, as well as instruction on changing it.

Hope this helps you...

Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.
