Are you comfortable with opening up the TV after it is unlplugged? If not, then I would advise finding a local repair shop. It is likely that a capacitor and/or other parts overheated and blew. Caps are supposed to blow once they become too stressed. However, a bad cap could also be a sign of other problems as well.

What did you do when you say you cleaned the screen? If you shine a flashlight on the screen can you see some very dim picture? If the back light is out. This will require replacing the power board.

I think that the pop you heard was an electrolytic capacitor blowing its top on the picture frame board. If you are able to check this for yourself by looking on the board for the one/s with a bulging top or are a brownish/black colour like something has caught fire. And also in this situation smell can be of great help as it will smell burnt out but PLEASE before putting your nose or anything else in the tv take all necessary precautions against electric shock and discharge any electrolytic capacitors in the vicinity. If you are not able to do this yourself find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

Most likely a power supply failure, and or a failure on one of the other boards that is causing the shutdown.

The set will need service.

Symptoms are not related,what you hear is the high voltage turning on and that is normal if it only does it for less than a second,the grainy picture might be intermitant,dont turn it off,when the picture is grainy tap the side of the set to see if it racts and if it does you know you have a loose conection.This could be outside because of a loose ground on tha cable or inside in the tuner.
