That sounds like the power section had a capacitor or something blow out on you. Unfortunately these means a trip to the repair shop.

If you can find a good tv repair shop then they will be able to replace just what went out. Typically the bill should come to about $75 if they do it this way. If you go to a average shop or the company repair depot they will replace the entire board that the part is one. This is safer as sometimes one part will weaken others as it goes out. However this can be much more expensive. You can count on spending $400 and up in this case.

So what to do is this. Talk to a few repair shops, and the local repair depot for Maxent if there is one. Only get a estimate. Have a look around the stores for the cost of a replacement tv.
When you know these numbers then you will know which way to go. Usually the new tv is within a few dollars of what the repair bill ends up costing. One gets you a new warrantied tv and the other a 5 year old tv that may fail again. If you can find the shop that does the component repair then I'd go that way, otherwise I'd get the new tv.

Pop sound then no picture, just sound


I assume this is a plasma TV? You will have a fuse blown on either the Y or Z sutain board, there is also a possibility one of the driver IC's has blown on the buffer board, this will shut down the screen & leave the audio working normally. You can check these boards which sit on the left & right hand sides of the screen.

I had the same problem. We replaced the Y Sustain board. It was under $200 and not at all hard to do yourself. Remove the back of the tv. Make sure you watch what screw goes where. You will see the board on the left side. The number should be on the bottom right corner of the board. Just watch how you removed the board making small notes as to what goes where. Its really not that hard and you can save 600$ or more

No Visual; Only Audio


No real specific suggestion but it's likely serious. Very likely in the hi-voltage section and quite possibly the flyback transformer; too expensive to bother with if so.

I have a 56" Toshiba DLP TV, yesterday evening while watching the CNN news we have heard a cracking sound and the video disappeared, the screen went black. The audio was OK, but the two pilot lights...


Hi when was the bulb last changed as when the bulb goes it will do this. at the back of the tv is a panel, it will have vents an a sign saying something like bulb on it the bulb is in there and there is a screw holding this cover on and inside is a clip that holds the bulb in place, remove bulb and check it for its colour if its black then its blown and you just need a new one. if its damaged in any way replace it and do not touch the glass.

There is not much you can do to fix your plasma. Since the plasma is less then 1 year old, still under Samsung warranty.
I would suggest to call them to fix it.
Good luck.

With popping sound maybe more but first look for blown fuse inside set. Then if do not make a sound then it could be more.
