Two things in your TV can make that popping sound. One is the bulb of course and the other is a capacitor. Have you pulled out the bulb to inspect it? My guess is that you have broken glass in the cooling fan, which is why there is a grinding sound. Most bulbs tend to contain the glass from getting everywhere as it's only the filament inside that pops creating little diamond looking pieces inside the lens. If a surge was strong enough or if the bulb was poorly manufactured, the whole unit can explode inside spraying glass everywhere.
If the bulb looks fine, the pop must've been a capacitor on one of your circuit boards resulting in no display. Since the TV still powers on, your power supply and it's fuse appear to be fine. Check the bulb first and go from there.

Pull the front panel off and you will see a srew on the left side. Remove that screw and a smaller cover will come off. Then remove the srew that behind the small cover and then you can pull the lamp assembly out.

There could be a possible failure of the Ht circuit, check on your Ht Drive output trans, the LOT, any shorting in the HT capaciitors, short in the LT line. You will need to probe into the power side as there is a safety switch off. the microcontroller is working fine and hence trace carefully looking for damaged resistors, capacitors or transistors in the power side.
