I am not sure what you mean by the power supply. The power to the television did not go out. The sound continued (and continues) to work. Nothing else in the house went out. Are you referring to something within the televsion? If this is the source of the problem, is it worth fixinigng?

Re: 50H12 Toshiba HDTV picture out with loud 'pop'.
It depends on the age of the tv if its within 5 years old yes by all means its worth fixing.if its an older tv i would be hesitant in spending alot of money on it when u can buy a new one for the cost of the repairs.the power supply is inside the tv in the back.a part of it has stopped working id guess it will cost about 350 to 400 to repair possibly more,

TV is very common for having a power failure issue. The problem resides in the Y-Sustain board in most cases. The HDTV Television also have the same issue as they all use the same PDP Panel (plasma panel).
Loud popping and loss of power is common on plasma TVs and is usually either the Y sustain or Z sustain boards or buffers; in these instances the damaged part will be quite evident.
If this is an LCD you might have degraded insulation on one of the pink/blue back light power leads causing high voltage to 'arc' to the chassis.
The loud bang and smell is actually to your advantage as in these circumstances the damaged part is usually evident. It'll just be a matter of popping the back off and sleuthing around
That's the sound of your power supply going bad. You will have to have it repaired by a professional television technician.
Before making any purchases, please check the part and make sure it is what your TV needs. I am simply making recommendations and trying to point you to the right direction.
Sounds like blown invertor board that powers the backlights (if it is LCD or PLASMA). If your lucky and its just the invertor board blown it could cost anywhere between £50-£150 for new board (without labour).. if you are UN-Lucky, then the backlights themselfs may have blown which is *usually* an un-economic repair.
Sound like the color wheel exploded. When this happens the tv will not let it turn on, now for the real bad news,,,, Toshiba does not supply just the color wheel, you will have to replace the entire light engine for around $450.00 to $650.00
The loud pop was the $300 bulb exploding. Don't look for any help from Toshiba either. Their customer service stinks as bad as their product. Put the bulb in yourself and then sell to the next ****** that comes along. I made the mistake of keeping mine, because I thought that Toshiba was still a good product. Wrong, next the color wheel went out. It was back ordered forever. When I finally got one I installed it myself. So, it would only cost me the $530 price of the part with out the $400 charge for labor. Run as fast as you can. I now have vertical lines on the screen after 2 weeks. Who knows what's wrong now.
