I sat down to watch TV, heard a popping sound. No picture on my 52" plasma, but we have sound. Anyone ever heard of such a problem? Model # Sony PMB50HX1 . TV is over one year old.
No blinking lights. I unplug the power cord to the TV and the reset switch comes on/off four times and then red.
It sounds like either Y-sus or the X-sus pcb. These are usually fixed at board level and can be quite expensive. If your in Australia Speedy Spares in Melbourne should be able to supply these Boards. They are located on the left and right hand side of the panel and will be connected to the panel through smaller sub PCB's. The x and y sus boards are about 30cm x 20cm in size.

That click might have originated in 2 places: either it was the main relay disconnecting or it was the sound of a capacitor popping. Both are very severe problems - they signal that the power source of your tv has just failed.
Fixing it is a job for someone with electronics experience, if you're not one then call a repairman.
I assume this is a plasma TV? You will have a fuse blown on either the Y or Z sutain board, there is also a possibility one of the driver IC's has blown on the buffer board, this will shut down the screen & leave the audio working normally. You can check these boards which sit on the left & right hand sides of the screen.
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.
