Sometimes a part can go shorted, and an over voltage occures somewheres thus causing another part to blow. This can be anywhere from in the power supply to any of the other boards.

The set would have to be serviced to determine the cause and what was damaged. Most likely there will be the need to change some boards. Most of the service is done by a combination of board replacement and some component replacement depending on the exact type of fault.

Loud electrical sound in rear of set(tv)

Sounds like the High voltage is leaking out and arching somewhere. Have a look in the back and see where it is BUT be CAREFULL!! This is enough voltage to cause serioud harm to you. If you have no TV repair experience, this is not the repair to start experiementing with. Play it safe and call out a pro to assist you. Good Luck.
