Heard a loud pop noise on Toshiba TP48D90 tv.Now no sound


Its not worth it. the parts cost alone will exceed the value of the Tv. you can buy a new 50" TV for $500 or less. Time to put it out to pasture.

That pop was probably a capacitor blowing up in the power supply. Could be another power component too. Get an estimate from a TV repair shop first to see if it's worth fixing or flat screen TV time.

LG plasma tv made loud popping noise


The plasma gas tubes may be damaged or the gas couldve leak out. remember plasma have to remain upright at all times even when transporting them, if they are not you should just set it up straight for about 3-4 hours before turning it on.

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.
