Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
This one may take a while to completely diagnose, but from what you've described so far, I say the ballast is bad. The whine is the ballast trying to fire. The pop may be related. The ballast is available for $140 (you get back $30 when you return the bad one). I'd start there. The part number is: 271922.
