I disagree with given info about Tube or Lamp for plasma tv. In fact plasma tv has no tube or lamp inside and its technology is different other than conventional tvs.
Loud pop sound shows that some chip got exploded in either power supply or any other high voltage consuming board. Visual check by experienced tech is required to find out what board got damaged for some reason then replace it to get tv fixed.
Thanks.

It sounds like the actual tube / lamp inside the unit has exploded. You will need to either get it repaired at a local TV repair shop or replace the TV. Unfortunately with that unit it is probably cheaper to just replace it.

    Please if possible come back to the question here and rate it 4 thumbs. It looks like the answer helped you, but for some reason it doesn't rate it 4 thumbs unless you come back a second time and specify 4 out of 4 thumbs. I hope you will do this for me. Thanks Tim

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.

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.
