Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-50WE655 50" Rear Projection HDTV
First is if this happened unplug the set as you may do more damage if keep trying to power it up.
Inspect in order:
The lamp this model uses.
The power supply board for burnt or damaged parts
A visual inspection of the boards including the ballast that drives the lamp
No luck and then you have to consider based on your skill level here to have the set checked by a technician.

Sounds like you may have an issue with either the ballast or lamp. I would check to see if you can isolate where the sound is coming from. You can get the replacement ballast and the Lam from www.tvrepairworld.com along with free instructions

SOURCE: Tv won't turn on.
Power supply is blown. Google it, check ebay (with tv model name) or just part it out and get a new one. You can also buy these used for really cheap off of craigslist.org

Anything that sounds like electrical crackling will be coming from either the lamp or lamp driver/ballast boards or their interconnections. The lamp should be examined first as this is the most likely cause.

Usually, yes. A bulb that has audibly 'popped' will be apparently bad if you pull it out of the TV (shattered). Other times this is a lamp ballast board.
