Sounds like a capacitor in one of the power supplies exploded either in your high voltage horizontal power supply or the main power supply. If you don't mind taking off the back cover you actually might be able to find this capacitor it will have a huge hole in it.

Capacitors tend to dry out after about 5-6 years and can explode just like yours has.

Lenovo 0301jdu keeps beeping when plugged in

Depending if the computer will turn on correctly or not, it sounds like this could be either simple or a big job.
To make it easy: If the computer turns on fine, works fine, just beeps while shut down and charging, there's a fault in the charger.

However, If the computer will power on, but no display yet you hear beeps, than one of 2 things is happening.

1: Try removing 1 chip of memory (1 of the panels on the bottom laptop) than starting it, than reversing the procedure.

2: If still no luck, the motherboard needs replacement which if under warranty is covered.

Tv will not turn on. when plugged in there is a beep beep beep.

does it back up while beeping? just kidding - what does the power light on the tv do after you try to turn it on do you hear sound at all? have you tried changing inputs (do you get video on any input) does you see a picture n the tv at all if so is the picture really dark - need a little more info to get you in the right area - probably a power supply or inverter board problem to be honestly with you.
