Most likely a capacitor failed (or more - usually they fail in bunches), easy to fix (just some soldering to do) and a cheap part (less than $2 a piece) - find them and replace them. If you're lucky this is the only thing that has failed, otherwise you will have to test (and replace if necessary) the transistors from the power source.

Thanks for using FixYa.The popping sound you hear is usually from a bad cap on any of the boards inside. However, to check what has gone bad you’ll have to open the back of the unityou’ll need to check bulged/swollen capacitors on power supply board. As the unit won’t even stay on for a long time so it means that it is the power board which is causing this issue. These issues usually happens due to overheating in plasma TVs after sometime, as these sets are very hard working device and produces a lot of heat.Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
