Re: sony KP61V80

This may be an easy problem to fix. If you heard a pop sound, it's possibly a burnt cap on the powersupply. Check caps C521, C522, C517 or any burnt caps on the RA-3 chassis. Obviously be careful when checking.

I have a 60" Sony

It seems lamp/ bulb popped again, check lamp inside tv.
If tv does not show red blinking light then it would be lamp that knocked off, replace lamp in tv to fix its problem, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.
Let me know if you have additional question.

Was watching my vizio and i heard a pop and the screen went blank, but there still is sound, its about 4 years old can it be fixed and ballpark on how much it would cost to fix!

Main Power Supply issue! The repair would cost you more than what a new flat panel would cost you. Vizio is a Chinese made TV. Only lasting 3.5 to 4 years. Go out and buy yourself a new Christmas gift a new flat screen TV. Try to get a name brand one like Sony, Samsung or Panasonic. They have great service records. Vizio is your typical breaks, throw it away.

"pop sound", picture out, burning smell...?

Usually, yes. A bulb that has audibly 'popped' will be apparently bad if you pull it out of the TV (shattered). Other times this is a lamp ballast board.
