42 inch techwood plasma no picture

We have a 42 inch Techwood plasma screen tv which is 3 years old. Tonight whilst watching it, there was a click sound like turning off a light switch, the picture went off but the sound is still fine. Cna you tell me what might be wrong and the probable cost of repair. We lie in France now and hardly speak enough of the language to ask locally so hope you can help.

Techwood 42" plasma screen television

Do not turn this television on! Any electronic that smokes is NOT GOOD! The smoke and accompanying smell is from plastic and solder that is being melted by a short on one of the TVs logic boards. Call a local TV repair man this is not an issue you could fix yourself and will most likely be better off buying a new television. Stay away from off brands like these, spend the few extra bucks on a name brand like Sony, Toshiba, LG, or Samsung and you won't encounter these types of issues.
