    Hi, ive got a Samsung 47" widescreen rear projection HDTV. Its worked
    great for 5 years and is off warranty. Last weekend it made a very
    loud pop noise and died. The power lite will come on if its plugged in
    but it will not turn on. No activity whatsoever. I asked around and
    was told the LCD cannon probably blew, but then I found it is NOT LCD,
    it has 3 CRTs. I opened it up and looked and didnt see any thing with
    burn marks and there was no burning smell after it died.

    I was told the power supply will also make a pop sound when it dies.
    Could that be the only problem? Might it have damaged other parts when
    it died. Just gotta figure out if its worth fixing and if I can do it
    myself. Im a computer tech so I can work with components up to a
    certain point.

    Thanks,

    You can't fix it yourself. Is it worth fixing? Get an estimate. Repairs on
    rear projection sets are at the very least $200 + service call.

    At Least post the Complete Model Number of the product so we at least have a
    chance to id it and then render relevant answers. At this point it may be
    best to off it to the nearest repair or recycle facility.
