Would require some troubleshooting, common problems would be convergence amp ic and high volt transformer transistors

If you are really brave tackle this TV FAQ.

While I was watching my Emerson TV I heard a loud click and the screen went black and audio went off. When I press tv button on cable remote the tv button glows red, and nothing happens on the tv.

Hi the power supply might have shut down through overheating turn the power of at the wall socket & wait for a short time before trying again the TV might reset itself if this doesn't work its probably shut down from a faulty component. good luck
