Have the problem that the set will not start up, but I hear the relay click on. I have taken off the back. I can see the middle picture tube arching in the neck. The other two are glowing. Bad tube? I want to know what I am getting into.

Year make and model ?
Have you swapped the fuel pump relay with another ?
Its normal for the traction control light to come on if the check engine light is also on.
Have you checked the engine computer for trouble codes ?
The click is a power relay on the main board and if the red light is on I would suggest looking inside to see if it has more than one relay--follow the power cord into the set----some of these sets have one relay but others have up to 3.
They are know for sticking open or shut. A tap on them can free them..A look inside even by a novice may also reveal something burnt or unplugged etc. view of relay bottom side is up.
GOOD question and well asked----Start at the beginning.
if light on main fuse is good---do you hear the power relay click on and off?
These sets for trouble shooting use a number of green and one red LED inside on the board--the red one should be on when power is connected and the others at turn on all should light--if do this with back off look for the Green ones---when set turned on do all light and then go out--look for one that goes out first or last---each is connected to a specific voltage coming out of the power supply---they will lead you to the area where the trouble is---this set is old enough you may be able to find a service manual online.
I have fixed a lot--going to need a volt/ohm meter for any real tests.
You are hearing the main POWER relay turning on and off, it can be caused by short circuits so it turns off then turns itself back on, or the power supply DC is not steady due to bad caps, it will have to be troubleshoot down to component level, most repair shop will try out a spare power supply module.
When u turn the tv on,u hear alot of clicking?That mean the Ballast that help the projection bulb to work is dead.Change the Ballast,might as well change the bulb too.U don't know what is the condition of the projection bulb in.
Check the main relay-PGM-FI Main Relay, called a fuel injector relay(a gray little box with a plug at the end). To make sure it is a bad relay, do this: Turn the key to II, listen for a humming sound from behind you. It is a fuel pump working. You should hear a click under the dash after it. It is a main relay click . If you do not hear a click, you car will not start. If you do hear a click, you car will start.
Fix is to take the relay out, resolder the joints and put it back in. Go on www. MarkLamond.co.uk and http://techauto.awardspace.com both sites will show you how to resolder the main relay and where it is located if it is the PGM-FI Main relay.
The click you hear is the starter relay. Check for continuity thru relay with battery negative cable disconnected and switch in start position. If no continuity, it probably has burned contacts. Sometimes these can be taken apart and contacts filed/sanded cleaned.
When the set ends up flashing the LED, it should be a repeatable count. Can you please report that count here? Also, since the set eventually works, I'd suspect a bad connection or a part that has changed value over time. The blink code will help to narrow down the offending circuit.
