Question about Projection Televisions
The click you hear is the power relay engaging. If you get no further indication of any cactivity or you jsut hear a second click, there is an internal problem and the protection circuits are shutting down the set. Was there any symptoms prior to the set being dead? If not, the most likely cause is either a shorted horizontal output transistor or convergence ICs (assuming a CRT based set). Usually DLP or LCD based projection sets have indicators on the front that will flash when there is a problem with the lamps. If you can post the make and model, I can provide a more detailed explanation and possible fixes.

It sounds like a faulty component on the power supply. Capacitors can cause that click you are describing so if you start your check there you might find the problem pretty quickly. Also check resistors near the faulty cap as these could have been taken out. If you are not able to check this yourself entrust a competant technician. Good luck.
