This is happening way too much.Had same problem and customer service ignored me as warranty was up.
By looking into it ,it seems there is two main sus boards,Y,Z that have a habit of blowing,Z being a main culprit.Problem was supposed to be fixed on newer boards but wouldn't trust them.
Some newer TV's use hybrid boards.
Unless you can pick up a broken same model TV for parts,the boards can be quite expensive.Probably cheaper to replace tv with new one.(NOT LG)

Tv has picture, no sound, just popping/clicking

Probably the internal power supply has failed. It can happen even though your TV was stored and covered.

do you have a surround sound system connected to the tv or are you trying to just get your volume from the tv.if it's only volume from the tv check which input you are using to broadcast wheather it's set on catv or antenna or avr vcr .some tvs will allow picture without sound if it's the wrong setting.if your using satellite tv you may have your connection for your tv in on the wrong connection it will give audio or video without both .many main boxes on hd dvrs now you must connect the first tv correctly and flow from that.if it's direct tv and you have moved try reversing your number 1 and 2 boxes and then reconnect properly to reboot your addressable command

I have sound, but no picture.

It is most likly the problem is where you put the game in. Try using a can of air to spray in there. If that doesn't work, It would be cheaper to buy a new one then to have that one seviced. You could also spray the air into the cartridge.

It sounds like your tv has a programming problem not to do with the remote but the actual tv you will have to take it in to get repaired or you just might have to buy a whole new tv

Sylvania 27 inch stereo flat screen tv

This problem sounds like a short inside the picture tube itself unless a driver transistor failed that drives the red gun in the CRT. You may have to take it to an authorized repair facility if the picture tube is still in warranty.
