Hello, Are there currently ANY signs of life on the TV at all (power light lit, etc.)?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

We often see these sets develop faults after a few years, and in most cases it requires replacement of a component (the Power Supply Board being the most common).

However it's worth it to try a hard reset, as sometimes the processor in the TV can simply have locked up.

The first thing you would try, is disconnect the set from power, then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds and release. Then plug the set back in, and also check that the power cord is connected tight at the TV as well. Press power once, and see if the set powers up normally. Try this procedure up to 3 times, and please let me know what happens.

If you have the same problem, that pop sound was a component shorting on the power supply/LED board of the TV and this component needs to be replaced. If you're looking to repair the set yourself, the power supply is a plug and play board that can be replaced by removing all of the screws on the back of the TV. In this case you can purchase the board at the link below:

Alternatively if you're not comfortable with this a shop will charge close to $250 parts and labor for this repair and can be located at the following link:

Other than what's described above, I'm sorry for the bad news and wish there were a quick fix.
