Have you tried checking the fuses this is a solution i posted a little while ago!!! I was watching tv there was a popping noise and screen went blank. My husbands very practical and we took the back off the tv ,we tested the fuses with a fuse tester and one had blown we took the fuse too Maplin our nearest electrical wholesaler who found us new fuses £1.29 for a pack of 10. We replaced the blown fuse now everything works as it should. Hope this helps we saved about £275 by doing it ourselves but do make sure you feel competent enough to have a go its not that hard but do make sure you unplugg the tv from the electric before you attempt taking off the back and checking the fuses and be careful as tvs can store a electric ok

I heard two popping sounds and now my television will not power on.


A popping sound as you describe sounds as if your tv blew a couple capicators on the main control board. More than likely , you are needing to aquire a new main circuit board.

I was watching my Hitachi 42hdm12 and heard a pop and now the picture won't show up or sound or anything?


A pop is usually a power surge and you blew a board. If you take the tv apart, if this is it, it will be evident by the burn marks. You could have burned out the internal power supply as well.

I get sound but no picture then the tv shuts off after 5min. It is a Mitsubishi wd-73837


Popping noises are not a good sign; I suspect the sound came from the catastrophic death of an electrolytic capacitor or worse, the death a a power semiconductor.
Open the lower cabinet and using a good light, look for a smaller, separate board with fairly large parts on it; some cylindrical in shape, others block-like that may have copper wire showing.
If, as common, this board is plugged with connectors into other parts of the system, you may be able to swap the failed board out for a replacement bought from a Mitsubishi service center.Expect to pay $100-$150 US if the set is no longer under warranty.

Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.

Read replace lamp then afew weeks later heard pop noise and now black screen


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.
