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.

For the 42" plasma, you need to change your sustainer boards or your main board to fix the problem. If your TV is still under warranty, call 877-MY-VIZIO and they will have a technician go to your home and fix the problem for free.

For the L42 HDTV, you need to change the inverter boards or the main board. If your TV is still under warranty, call 877-MY-VIZIO and they will have a technician go to your home and fix the problem for free.
