Whistle noise? POP? Black out

Was watching TV all of a sudden I heard a Whistle noise… then I heard a loud POP… finally the screen went Black. I could not turn the TV set off until unplugged from the wall. Plugged back on and no video but sound was OK initially. The sound went away (intermittent)?
What could have happened?

    I just got the lamp from and should be able to install this weekend. As soon as I get it done I'll let you know how the suggestion worked.

    Well, after removing the old lamp and replacing for the new one, the tv did not work. I decided to take the set apart and checked all electronics/boards for any visual signs of burned or defective components and to my relief, none were damaged. I then moved to the light generation section and interestingly enough, I noticed some sparkles on the inside of the glass portion of the beam assembly. Lo and behold the Whistle... PoP and Out goes all.. turned out to be the COLOR WHEEL that had exploded into tiny bits/pieces. So after purchasing the Lamp and not being the culprit, I needed to spend the money to purchase the Color Wheel. I hope to get it this week and should make the trip back to my in-law and see if this takes care of the problem, which am almost certain it will.

    Needless to say, thanks to Slinteriors for leading me in the right direction and for the patience to get my feedback.

Samsung plasma screen went black. Was watching tv, heard a loud pop and the screen will no longer turn on. You can hear the tv turn on but no picture. Power is still working, just a blank screen.

Issue is either with the X or Y sustain board. Look for a cap that has blown or a cracked solid state device on the board. One of them is responsible for the ***** croak you heard.

We heard a "pop" noise

The pop noise could be a capacitor poping its top up.This is a common problem to most TV sets today. Usually located at the power supply board.Once this parts give up it usually shorts the circuit and blows a fuse.Replacements of these parts mentioned will often remedy the problem.Flashing power indicators indicate a problem.If you have the chance of counting how many the blinks are I could have told you the problems code are and the source of the problem.

No Picture, Power light Blinking 3 times then repeats

3 times blink shows lamp cover is removed or not installed properly on TV.
Please take out lamp inside TV and check, seems its broken as you heard loud pop.

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.
