It can be deduced from your problem that the fuse located inside the adapter is burnt out,This occurs as a result of excess voltage which is passed into the adapter,the fuse in the adapter tends to protect excess voltage from going directly into the TV unit,

Hence,when excess voltage gets into the adapter,the fuses burns out and voltage cannot flow into the TV UNIT,

The solution is to take apart the adaptor and replace the cylindrical fuse which is burnt out,or as a better alternative,replace the adapter in order to obtain optimum performance in terms of protection of your TV unit.

Thanks and take care.

When I push the power button....nothing but a poping sound.

It seems that your unit has had a major malfunction and some parts have been destroyed, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

No power but adapter is okey

simple answer, rma it, but if you want to try fixing it, go ahead, some of the things you can do it, first check the voltage out from the adapter using a volt meter, make sure it is putting out voltage, second, open the router up and make sure the port is solder tight on the board, also, smell the board and make so you dont smell any smokey or burnt smells, if so, your router may be un fixable
