Question about Televison & Video
The 'POP' noise was likely a capacitor saying farewell.
If you are able, AND confident with electrics - take the TV apart (UNPLUG)
These TVs are very heavily populated with Surface Mount components - I suspect that you will likely find - what looks like a small can (half a centimetre in diameter, with 'candyfloss' coming out of it..)
YES - You could get a replacement from somewhere like Maplin / Radioshack......
Replacement will work - However...you really need to establish WHY it went Pop, and get to the root cause (Excess power feed / drain)
Realistically - without sounding too negative . . other components would have also been affected but not necessarily killed.
