Philips TV (27PT6441/37) popping noises -)sparks ??

I have a Philips 27PT6441/37, Chassis L04. 1U AA.
When trying to turn the power on, it makes a loud popping noise, and from the back, I can see sparks towards the top. I can smell the burning or what not from the sparks, and I have to pull the plug for it to stop.

I am seeing a lot of reviews about this TV and the fuse problem or blinking error codes, but haven't found anything about my problem. I could really use some help.
