TV made popping noise, but won’t stay on for longer than 5 minutes?

so i was gifted this TV, it’s a Sanyo DP50843 model and it’s worked great up until a couple of days ago. i got it as a graduation gift and the guy who gave it to me said it’s in good condition, he had only stopped using it because he bought a new TV. (which we know him personally, and he was trying to sell it but wanted it gone) it randomly made a popping noise the other night and then the screen kind of glitched? then it went black but i can turn it back on and it’ll play for about 5-10 minutes before it makes the loud popping noise and repeats the process. idk i’ll probably have to replace it as i’m not tech savvy enough to try and replace any parts and a repair shop will only cost me more than it will to get a new one.

    Take it to a TV repair shop. 

    Unless it needs a new power supply board, 

    the cost should be less than $100.      


    Continuing to use it as it is could cause further damage.
