TV - Black screen, no sound, power light is on

I have a 4 year old 20HLV86 HDTV/DVD.  While watching it, I heard a pop, the screen went black, there is no sound, but the green power light is still on.  I had to unplug the TV to power it down, and when I plugged it back in and turned it on again it shows the same thing - power light on, no picture or sound.  Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Re: TV - Black screen, no sound, power light is on

Leave it off overnight, it may work again -- but you'll have the same problem within 6 hours, I guarantee it. (I'm currently stuck in this situation myself -- so far I've had the motherboard replaced, and the firmware updated. In both cases, it quits within 5 or 6 hours... sometimes, I can unplug it and it'll reset and work for a few hours, sometimes not.)

 

If it's under warranty, start the fixing process. If not, buy a new TV. =/
