I have a Panasonic plasma TV TH-P50U30A which has worked

I have a Panasonic plasma TV TH-P50U30A which has worked fine for a few years until yesterday. Whilst watching the TV it made a small ping like noise and stopped working. If I try to turn on the TV the green light will come as normal and the TV seems like it is ok and within a couple of seconde it will automatically switch off. If I try again it is the same result. - Any ideas?

I have a Samsung Plasma television model number

I have a Samsung Plasma television model number PN51F8500AFXZA and serial numberZ6PT3CBF400763A. It is connected to a Motorola set top cable box. A few days ago the transformer to the set top box exploded and tripped the circuit breaker. The breaker was reset . The cable company technician came by yesterday and replaced the faulty transformer and the set top box is still functional but the television will not power on ie even the remote control sensor light is off. I have had an electrician check the wall socket and we do not have a line fault with the power source. Which fuse or power centre did the short circuit damage in the television and where can I purchase it?
