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.

My Pioneer Plasma PDP-503PU HD went out. It made a broken glass sound

Dear bob_bitt,
I am very sorry to say this but,looks like your TV is dead for ever.
Plasma TV's have a glass tube inside them that fires the pictures onto the screen. The tube in your TV must have reached its EoL (End of Life) and hence,would have shattered.(That should explain the shattering glass)
Before you throw out your TV though,try to get it checked by a professional technician. But if you bought your TV around 10 years ago,you will be better off buying a 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.

Unfortunately, that board is the inverter board. And for this model the inverter board is only supplied with the the PDP panel. The panel is quite expensive, here's a link if needed:
