Call 877-543-8325 this is an LG Executive call center and they will fix this for free. I have a 50" plasma I bought january 2006 which is out of warranty by 5 months. They faxed me and the LG repair shop a 30 day warranty for my tv to cover the repair. Just tell them you heard a pop and in my case the picture is distorted. All they need is the model number and serial number and they should take care of it. No arguing needed.

Watching TV and all of a sudden a loud pop came from the back of the set. Doesn't turn back on after unplugging.

Check its power supply regulator board. The pop sound you heard may be due to an explosion to any electrolytic capcitors on it. If the line voltage exceeds, this fault will happen. just repalce the damaged component. It is best to replace this board as card basis.

While watching the tv, there was a sudden loud, sharp pop, sounding like a gun shot, and the picture went blank

Sounds like either something went pop on the main pcb or in the power supply. Will need a repairman to take a look. & Just a caution if you're feeling adventurous, don't do it yourself unless you know what you're doing!!

Hello bassin365,
The loud pop you heard was a filter capacitor. The problem now is the power supply is shot, or should I say the capacitor that is connected to that voltage output is blown. You will have to replace it with a new one. I would suggest just for your curiosity, unplug the TV, take the lower panel off (you will need a star head driver to do this) and look at the power supply board (the board on you left side) look towards the middle of the board and you will see a heat sink in the middle of that heat sink you should see a capacitor (or the remains of one). its value is 2200uf 16V (I believe that this is the one that has gone bad), you should also look for others that may have blown also. I would also suggest that you have a qualified TV repair person come to your place and work on this for you, due to the nature of this section of your TV.
If you choose to do this yourself you will find this useful.  Get a schematic to find the values the Chassis number I believe is ITC222. Here is a link to the schematic:

I hope this helps,
Thank you,
