I was playing a game (PS3) and I heard a slight "pop" from the tv

I was playing a game (PS3) and I heard a slight "pop" noise for the rear of the tv, the picture then became distorted, blury, and off color. There is also a "burnt" smell coming from the rear of the tv, when turned on.

User can't really fix this at all. Even a regular TV shop would have problem replacing individual components. What you can try to do is maybe order the board that has the burnt components, and raplace it yourself.

    They usually get very hot and makes a burnt smell, but they don't burn to the point where it is obvious. See if there are any transistor that has chipped. Google what a transistor look like so you have any idea. There should also be a small transformer in there. You might find the wires in it are discolored. A power resistor also can burn untill opened and not obvious, at least to a person who usually don't work in electronics. Resistor have color code on them, they are usully three color bands. When they burn all three colors are not clear anymore.

RCA HD50LPW164 turned on TV made a pop


the loud pop you heard was probably a capacitor blowing its top. The grinding noise is likely high voltage arching that was occuring due to rising voltage since capacitor isn't there to smooth it out.
