Question about Televison & Video
What probably happened is that a capacitor blew it's top in the unit. First off, I would try calling the manufacturer about it and see what they can do for you (generally there is only a 1 year warranty but you can try). Otherwise, the capacitor (if that is what blew, they do make a loud pop when they explode), should just need to be replaced. If you can't distinguish the part that blew, an electronics store should be able to figure out which part is needed and solder it back in. If it is just a capacitor, then it should be a relatively cheap fix. If you want to attempt to replace it yourself, digikey.com will have the capacitor you need. Again I am assuming it is a cap, but to be sure, you would have to open up the tv to take a look which will void the warranty. I will be happy to answer further questions you have on this, but you need to decide how you want to proceed.
Let me know how this works out for you.
