Yes there is fuse.
Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

I have a Vizio p50hdm while watching heard a pop noise and tv went out cant turn back on.I replaced main board and power board and still doesn't come on any Ideas?


The power amplifier chip (which goes "pop" when it goes bad) may be located on the board where the IR sensor is. Sometimes (but not always) you can make the TV come on by holding the power button in _until_ the TV comes on. But that usually only works when the chip is "going" bad. If you heard the pop, it's probably shot. Also, check for a fuse on _any_ of the boards, and possibly a main fuse at the back of the TV.

Power flickered during thunderstorm, TV wont come back on. heard little pop from tv when lights flickered.


Unplug it and take the back off. Look too see if the fuse right next to the power cord is black. Replace it. If it pops again, you have damaged the board and need a repair guy. Look for any burnt parts before replacing the fuse.

I have a HD52W55 and it will not come on. heard a pop and smelled something burning, took the back cover off can not find anything obviously burnt but have no lights and no power.


Well, my first guess would be a blow fuse, did you check for that?
But if you smelled something burning, then even if the fuse did blow, it failed to protect something; probably the main power transformer. That's a coil of wire in a sort of square shape that should be near the fuse. Its hard to tell if they're burnt sometimes, but it may need replacement.
Please upload a few pictures so we can have a look too.

there probably is a fuse blown. but something made the fuse blow. If you can take the back off and find out if one did blow and the location for it i can probably help you further.

Toshiba tz50v51 popping sound


Possible problems: * The TV set may be unplugged. * A fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or switched off. * The remote control unit (RCU) may be disabled. Solutions: * Make sure the TV/VCR are plugged in and the wall switch is on. * Check the fuse or circuit breaker. Test the outlet with a lamp. * Replace the RCU's batteries: if this fails exchange the unit.
