I was watching my TV tonight, it had been on for about 5hrs when I heard a very loud 'pop' there was still a picture but the display went very dark, I immediately switched it off. I'll call a tech tomorrow, but i was hoping to get some info on what the problem might be before I call them.
It is 25 months old.

Hi it sounds like it has had an elctric fault like a resistor failing. The click you heard would be a internal switch that cuts off the elctric supply to the screen to stop furthe damage hapening. It could even be something simple like a bad solder and in that case will need locating and resoldering. How old is the telly and how often is it used. When you switch it off leave it off for about an hour then try again if you have allready done this then it probably is a blown resistor are you sure nothing has been pressed on controll have you tried seeing if you can acess the menu screen via the remote and see if that comes up on the screen let me know ok
You will find that the power supply has failed and is no longer supplying the VS voltage that the screen requires to produce a picture. Call a specialised engineer that is authorised to work on your make ot TV.
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.
