Hello, I was watching tv, when I went to change the channel the tv just went completely dead. It does not seem to have power going to it yet everything else on the same power strip does. This is pretty annoying seeing as though the tv is only 10 years old. Your help is appreciated in solving my problem.

Only 10 years old??? Ok its most likly at the end of its usefull life, unless you want to put some cash into the set, as there are no user replaceable parts inside this TV, so you really should let a trained tech estimate it for you. But once you fix it, you most likly will start have problem after problem. Do yourself a favor, and buy a new one. The problem with this set is most likly the flyback and other componets or the power supply capacitors are bad.

The tv power supply board it is shorted and dead.That the board where the tv power a/c cord plug into it.Tries websites like Shojimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole new refurbish tv power supply board for the replacement.
Check the aerial cable, ensure it is well plugged in and getting signal.
If you are using a receiver box, check cables to TV and receiver (freeview, sat, cable etc.), try setting channels on receiver again, if it does not work but you get static, then either the cables or receiver are defective.
Test the TV on standalone , connecting it to an external antenna. Tune again the channels, and save the preset. If still no signal then the antenna socket on the TV may be defective.
Try using the TV with a DVD.
If you can watch DVDs, and TV is not keeping channels preset, and you tried all the above, at this point htere may be a fault in the tuner card inside tv.
Call the phone number listed on tv user manual to get support, and eventually repair it.
Try this before calling a factory authorized service center:
Press " menu 2 > 4 > 7 > 0 > enter", on remote. After settings have been initialized > press the system reset button on the front, once the LED stops blinking > reprogram settings and tuner channels (if not using box). IF NOT fixed call for service (get estimate before repair) and suspect repair of DM PCB (printed circuit board).
Most probably your antinna is not reciving TV signals properly.Try to adjust it in a right direction at a proper height, also adjust frequency of various channel of Direct TV through menu button.
Do you have a VCR or DVD recorder? If yes, set it to record what you are watching. After a "blackout" rewind the tape and review it. If there is a blackout on the tape, the problem is the sallite box, if not, it is the TV! QED
Sounds like a power supply problem.
I am sure that the pop is the fuse blown. If the fuse is blown, this means that there is a short somewhere.
Rear projection TV are like LCD projectors. And all of them use Switch mode power supply.
If you are lucky, there is a chance that a protection device (like a varistor) is sorted. This means that removing this, even without replacing will bring your TV to life, however...
Most probably the power supply is defective.
