The TV is on protect mode. The clicking sound is the protection switchthat keep turning the TV off to prevent further damage, this happenswhen a fault had been detected.
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
Alsoensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sendingbad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver boxor dvd connected.
If that does not work, and you keep having a flashingled on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while,that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.
1Theinternal circuits are jammed because of electrostaticcharges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage readby the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started theprotection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrongvoltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in, startingthe flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faultsthat can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, aconvergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.
Check alsothe video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, youcan get same flashing state because of the video cable.
