SOURCE: TV turns itself off after a few seconds, no picture at all

Sounds like the typical Flyback and shorted horizontal output transistor. Problem is the transformer is NO Longer Available

SOURCE: Power button makes a click, click sound

The sound is coming from a failed flyback auto transformer. You will need to replace that.

SOURCE: tv just clicks when turn on there's no picture or

The click is an indicator of a power relay that is activated when the power key is pressed, this eliminates the a stand by power supply problem, but there is still a power source missing, otherwise the click noise would be accompanied by another noise(static) when the h. circuit feeds th hv unit and powers the rest of the tv set. you could find an open fuse, usually blown by a shorted h.o.transistor which is a common failure with these sets. You could have it inpected by taking it to a tech, but a h.o. transistor plus labor would set you back around 150dolls, always a good idea to call first and try to get a guesstimate of what cuold be the final number.If your question was answer please your positive feedback this will help me.thanks!

Hi doncat01,

Many stations broadcast seperate audio channels to allow commentary or alternate languages to be heard if desired. If this setting has been altered in your television, it would explain why this happens on schedule, as it would be associated with the programming at that time. I recommend navigating your audio settings and looking for "SAP." If this is selected, turn it back to "Stereo," "Mono," or whatever other option is applicable to your audio setup.

Thank you,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Tryin to turn the tv on

Depending on the model # you have a bad flyback transformer . Most of these sets only have the generic available . When i would fix them the average cost would be between $85 to $110 . The original would cost more but ask them if it is an original transformer when you get it serviced.

TV clicks but no sound or picture

if this is a crt it is most likely not worth the repair specially considering the size of the set. Most parts for them cost more then the tv itself sorry for the bad news if its not a crt then thats a different story
