Well that pop had something to do with the power components inside the TV frying. I would have to say there is nothing you can do to repair it as its dangerous to work on such things.
I wouln't waste my time bringing it to a repair shop they will probably tell you to just buy a new one.

I have a 1993 36 inch RCA, model # P46151WK. TV was on and suddenly heard something pop and it started to smell like something burned inside. It wont turn on anymore.


You may have a fried horizontal output transistor and a defective flyback transformer. If indeed this set is 17 years old.......cheaper to replace him...sorry!

Sounds like it could be a problem with high voltage stages. Definitely a job for a TV technician as it is dangerous try to repair it yourself.

Tv does not come on


Those are not good signs. The TV needs repair. I would unplug it and not turn it on again. If the TV is still fairly new say within five years or so, try to find a reputable repair shop. Sometimes the local Better Business Bureau may help or ask around.

TV struck by lightning


Looks like the flyback (high voltage transformer and probably the majority of the power board is kaput. It would be cheaper and probably worth your while to invest in a new TV rather than try to fix this one..

No picture or sound


If you had a burning smell, well the board is toast. These sets are made to replace the entire board at one time. Before installing the replacement module, the picture tube should be checked. A defective picture tube ( such as a G1 short) may cause a failure in the power supply section.
