Tv was working fine then when I went to turn it on with the remote there was a loud pop and now the TV will not come on. I hooked another TV up to be sure the power surge protector works and it does. Would like to know if the TV is fixable.

Is it possible that it was storming when this happened? It could have been a power surge. If you are still covered under the manufacturers warranty, you should give them a call. Even if you aren't covered it wouldn't hurt to call to see if they can help or offer a discount to have it checked out and/or fixed.
Have you find out if the problem is with your remote control? For instance, you are able to control your TV using a Universal remote control. My 32" Vizio TV had a similar problem, initially thought it was related to my remote control but in fact the TV didn't respond either to an universal remote control of my SAT receiver that I eventually use to just turn on and off the TV. I've found out that the problem was with a little board on the TV located at the left down corner viewed from the front side of the TV and that receives the signal from the remote control. I found the board on ebay for about $5, replace it and the TV responded again to both original and universal remotes.
Hi, Question shows it is Vizio L32 lcd tv and symptom shows back light inverter board for defective for some reason and loud noise would be popping of any chip on inverter board. Shopjimmy..com has replacement boards of that model on reasonable price and local tv repairman will replace defective board after checking/ testing the tv. Hope these info will help. Thanks.
TV was on with no picture problem. Left the room and when I returned the picture was very dim. Turned system off and turned back on. Picture didn't change, but heard a loud pop from the back of the TV.
This may have been the sound of electrolytic capacitors exploding. I would not suggest plugging the set back in until you can have it checked by a qualified TV technician. If you are skilled in Electronics and would like to work on this yourself, you will need:
The schematic diagram, a multimeter, a signal generator, an oscilloscope, and an isolation transformer.
