Thanks for the info, it would be power supply board failure (loud pop sound) and replacement of power supply board in the TV will resolve the problem, please reply back if you want to work on it yourself and can remove TV back cover safely to assist you further

If you are not comfortable working on it yourself then you may please use the following link to get a list of TV repair shops in the area which will help to get repair quote...

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make the decision about this TV repair or invest that money in new replacement TV
If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask.

do you feel this is the best source for the replacement?

If you're asking about above supplier link then yes, they are good one

However, please get the p[art number off of power supply board on the TV to search/ google it for better price info

Power supply board part number would be BN44-00742A

Samsung BN44-00742A Power Supply **NEW 1/18** For: UN55HU8500FXZA TH01 i found this on ebay....says it is from a new damaged tv.....for $175 your thoughts? Jimmy is out of stock
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
do you know if there is a way for them to test before they sell them?

No, you can check standby volts only on that board with a multimeter

I found following two links offering the same power board on quite less
