Toshiba 50hp16 pop than crappy pic

I had it on for about 15-20 min watching/ listening the the morning news. I was getting my coffee ready and heard a pop sound. Didn't think much of it. Than i looked over and was like what the %uck. Shut it down, had to go to work. Turned on when i got home it worked but pic was tweaked. Could see it and hear it, but weird colors here and there. Girlfriend had it on the next morning. Next thing she heard a pop once again and the pic was pretty much like 98% gone, just a flicker of a pic here and there. I checked the internal fuses and they are good. I have the back of the tv off now. Any ideas? I am pretty handy, would love some input. Thanks for any help....Jay

    Auto power off

    The TV will automatically turn off after approximately 15 minutes if it is tuned to a vacant channel or a station that completes its

    broadcast for the day and stops broadcasting on that channel. This feature does not work in video input mode.

    Understanding the Power Return feature

    If the power is cut off while you are viewing the TV and the power is resupplied, the Power Return feature will turn the TV

    on automatically.

    If the power is going to be off for a long time or you are going to be away from the TV for a long time, unplug the power

    cord from the wall outlet to prevent the TV from turning on in your absence.

    Symptom Solution

    Black box on screen • Select OFF in the Closed Caption menu to turn off the Closed Caption

    Text mode.

    TV will not turn on • Make sure the power cord is plugged in, then press POWER.

    • The remote control batteries may be dead. Replace the batteries.

    No picture, no sound • Check the antenna/cable connections.

    No sound, picture OK • The sound may be muted. Press VOLUME.

    • The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another channel.

    • The MTS feature may be in SAP mode. Select STR or MONO in the

    MTS menu.

    Poor sound, picture OK • The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another channel.

    • The MTS feature may be in SAP mode. Select STR or MONO in the

    MTS menu.

    Poor picture, sound OK • Check the antenna connections.

    Picture and sound are out of sync • As with all products that contain a digital display, in rare instances,

    when viewing certain content (e.g., television broadcasts, video

    games, DVDs), you may notice that the sound and picture are slightly

    out of sync. This phenomenon can be caused by various factors

    including, without limitation, video processing within the TV, video

    processing in an attached gaming system, and video processing/

    different compression rates used by broadcasters in their programming.

    You may want to try one or more of the following suggestions,

    which may help to reduce the effect of this phenomenon:

    – If the TV is connected to an A/V receiver that has a programmable

    audio delay feature, use this feature to help synchronize the sound

    to the picture.

    – If you notice this phenomenon only on certain TV channels, please

    contact your local broadcast, cable, or satellite provider to inform

    them of this issue.

    Poor reception of broadcast channels • The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another channel.

    • Check the antenna connections.

    • If you are using a video input, make sure the INPUT button is set

    correctly.

    Cannot receive above channel 13 • Make sure the TV/CABLE feature in the SETUP menu is set to

    “CABLE.”
