That sounds like the lamp bulb blew and you will need to replace it. You can find ads on this web site that sell DLP bulbs at a decent price and you can install it yourself, or you can call 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center.

    Yes, you can do it yourself. If you don't have the manual, you can go to samsung-usa.com and look for downloads or support. There you can download manual for free.

SOURCE: Tv wont turn on

The loud pop was a capacitor blowing up or the high voltage transformer blew up. Very common problem.. if its the Transformer be expected to pay 250 or more to have repaired.

SOURCE: tv would not turn on and kept turning it's self

The tv has a little door at the right or left side. that is the lamp place (refer to the user's manual to replace the lamp of the unit). make sure you replace the lamp when the tv is unppluged of the power. safety always first.

SOURCE: tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on

If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.

I have a 47' Vizio lcd flat screen tv. So I turned it on and heard a loud pop noise. Now the tv will not turn on and no power seems to be getting to the tv. I believes its the mothboard mothboard.


That loud pop was a surface mounted "cap" capacitor blowing up. Look for a burnt spot on the circuit boards inside the TV cabinet, it will be very small so look carefully. They are called "Caps" for a reason.

RCA HD50LPW164 turned on TV made a pop


the loud pop you heard was probably a capacitor blowing its top. The grinding noise is likely high voltage arching that was occuring due to rising voltage since capacitor isn't there to smooth it out.
