Hi there and welcome Walter.

The pop you heard is a blown capacitor on the power board that has failed. this exploded (so burst the encasing) and this faults the power board so no power gets to the TV.

Just to confirm, do you see any power on the TV at all? Any lights showing? Anything on the screen?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
