Burnt smell

Check the main power supply regulator section for faulty component/s. The sound you heard might be of a bursted electrolytic capacitor at the power regulation stage circuit, due to some spikes in the input AC voltage. Open the TV and check this section. Be sure to unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, before open it.

35 inch Sony Trinitron, worked great, then went off w/o warning.

Most of the time the Horizontal circuit fails and by design the Power Supply will also fail.
The smell was one or more components burning
or over heating.
There is a good chance it will be a costly repair.
Hope this helps,

Well that pop had something to do with the power components inside the TV frying. I would have to say there is nothing you can do to repair it as its dangerous to work on such things.
I wouln't waste my time bringing it to a repair shop they will probably tell you to just buy a new one.

Sounds like it could be a problem with high voltage stages. Definitely a job for a TV technician as it is dangerous try to repair it yourself.

High pitch squeeling noise/no picture.

your problem is due short circuit in horizontal section of  tv

your problem & smell is due to horizontal section failure.

in that section

1 flyback transformer & horizontal output transistor might be faulty.

but remember to check power supply is normal other wise it may fail again.

for skilled technician it is not a major problem &easy to fix at fair cost.

good luck.
