    Is it a rear projection tv? If so, does the lamp led light on the front come on when you turn it on? If that is the case then you need a new bulb, which no lie they are pretty pricey.

It sounds like one of the Electrolytic Capacitors in the TV has gone, this can be caused by voltage fluctuations, Ambient Temperatures around the TV and sometimes they just fail for no apparent reason. If you are handy with some basic electronic tools you could open the back of the TV and you would possibly see the remains of the blown component as bits of paper like material around where a capacitor used to be.

More than likely, someone short circuited inside the TV.

The short term solution is to take it to a TV repair person (or in this case have them come to you).

The long term solution is to get a dog and get rid of the cat. The dog will be more loving, won't cause anybody to have an allergy attack when the visit you and will stay off of the TV. ;)

Difficul to turn on

If it is making a loud poping, there is a high voltage leak probably and most likely at the high voltage transformer which is the 3 inch square white device with the large red wire coming out of it. With someone turning on the set on someone looking in the back with the back off you will see the arc of high voltage. Also look up under back in further where the tubes are (three) and look for the arc. But is most likely on the transformer. Common problem is the transformer and must be changed by trained person.
