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.

Good Luck.

Panasonic tv PT50LC13 has no picture red light flashes when i turn it on green light flashes and turns off


This model was recalled by Panasonic-----massive recall. Start by having the lamp examined or tested---that is the place to begin.

We heard a "pop" noise


The pop noise could be a capacitor poping its top up.This is a common problem to most TV sets today. Usually located at the power supply board.Once this parts give up it usually shorts the circuit and blows a fuse.Replacements of these parts mentioned will often remedy the problem.Flashing power indicators indicate a problem.If you have the chance of counting how many the blinks are I could have told you the problems code are and the source of the problem.

Sony, KDFE50A10, Heard a pop and the picture went black. Now have a flashing red light.


Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

No Picture, Power light Blinking 3 times then repeats


3 times blink shows lamp cover is removed or not installed properly on TV.
Please take out lamp inside TV and check, seems its broken as you heard loud pop.

T.v. clicking and wont turn on..


Hello:

The loud pop you heard is usually indicative of a failed lamp. The clicking noise you hear is likely the ballast trying to turn the lamp on.

If you need assistance with a new lamp, please feel free to contact us at www.dlplampsource.com or 866-764-5822.

No picture, hear sound, television will shut off after a few seconds.


Lamp life is only a few thousand hours. Hopefully its only the lamp that made to noise. Don't turn on again until lamp is replaced.
