Have you checked the bulb? That's the most common cause of loss of picture, and in some models (I'm not sure about yours) if the bulb is out it also doesn't play sound. Since the DVD sound comes in a different port, it may be still playing that. I'm not saying it definitely is the bulb, but that is the most likely scenario, and easiest to fix (just replace the bulb).

Was watching TV, heard a pop and the screeen went black. Now when I turn it on, the pwoer light blinks green but their is no picture or audio. The light then starts blinking red

Is is standby light blinking red or any other light? Let me know how many times red standby light blinking after three seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.
It seems pop sound was due to broken lamp, please check lamp inside tv and if it is broken, replace it to solve tv problem.
Hope this will help.

Standby light continuously flashes with no picture or sound

count the number of blinks; you may have to unplug the set and try to turn on again--if it does not blink in a sequence(3 blinks, a pause etc) the set is in shutdown and many things can cause this.

TV makes humming noise, lamp light is blinking, does not turn on

Your color wheel needs to be changed. Mine just did the same thing. I changed mine, and the buzzing sound went away, however now my picture washes out with light or yellow colors. The darks look green and purple also.
