It looks like an output transistor problem. You can't fix it by yourself; you will need to call a service. It will cost you at least 100$, so consider buying a new one good luck

Our television is about 11 or 12 years old. It

your problem is more likely to be in the high voltage fly-back transformer or HV tripler supplying high voltages to the anodes to your picture tubes these voltages range from about 20 to 40 thousand volts, replacing these components are relatively reasonable in price and depending on where you live will cost no more than about 300 dollars

TV screen went blank and it began clicking, turning itself on/off repeatedly. Had to unplug from wall to make it stop. TV is only 2 years old and has worked perfectly until now.

the power supply board has failed. call 1-800-samsung for nearest service center. power supplies are usually $125.00 plus labor, 1 hour maximum to repair.

My television screen went blank and there is no picture, and my power button is flashing

Could be a ton of things. Essentially the TV sees an issue and refuses to come on to avoid flames and burning components.

Take it to a repair center and see if repair is cheaper than a new set.

Stopped working and squealing sound

Your set is shorted circuit condition. The power supply is making the noise. Unfortunately almost any of the hi current circuits will do this. If picture went out 1st look for video or hi voltage problems.

DLP TV: Left half normal, vertical 6" band center is gray, right half almost black. What's wrong?

No. The optical engine is OK. You need an adjustment in the light tunel. Call a tech to do it.
