I heard two popping sounds and now my television will not power on.


A popping sound as you describe sounds as if your tv blew a couple capicators on the main control board. More than likely , you are needing to aquire a new main circuit board.

I was watching my Toshiba 56mx195 DLP tv and heard a popping noise and the screen went blank but the sound was still on, is it the lamp or something worse?


You are correct in this assumption it is more than likely the lamp that blew after too many hours or getting to hot.

I was watching my Hitachi 42hdm12 and heard a pop and now the picture won't show up or sound or anything?


A pop is usually a power surge and you blew a board. If you take the tv apart, if this is it, it will be evident by the burn marks. You could have burned out the internal power supply as well.

I heard a pop and screen wet black. red lamp


Lamp inside TV is broken and requires replacement. Pop sound was its breaking sound.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual, pretty easy.
Please buy Sony original lamp for TV safety and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamp.
Let me know if you need to download user manual copy.
Thanks.

I have a KDF 42WE655..while watching tv, I heard a popping sound.


If the lamp is blowing that soon, the cooling fan is not working, or is plugged with dust. I have heard some people have a filter that needs changing or cleaning. Check your manual. The cooling fan is on the optical block and not easy to get to.
Probably a job for a tech.
