    We had a similar problem. Our television made a loud sound and then the picture went out. The television had sound and no picture. We called around to some service techs. It turned out to be two buffer boards that was in a kit. I do not know what the board #'s were. OUR cost us $586.00. The television works fine now. It was still cheaper than buying a new $1500.00 television.

Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.
