Hello, my name isXXXXX be happy to assist you.
I'm sorry you are having trouble with TV.

Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.

- How old is the TV and any part replaced in TV previously?
- Does Lamp light blinks on TV front when you turn it On?

Usually pop sound heard due to broken lamp in this TV and blinking lamp light indicates broken/ dead lamp.
Please provide me above info to assist you further.

Thanks.
