This may not really be a solution to your problem, but here it goes. If you are not sitting a particular distance from your tv you will experience slight pixelation. I have this tv myself and I think it looks great. Now when I am sitting up close on a station that is broadcasting in 720p(which is pretty much every HD station) It looks only pretty good...I sit back and it is fantastic. The good rule of thumb is take the number or inches your TV is in yours and my case 40, divide by 10 and then multiply by 2...and that is the number of feet you should be for optimal viewing distance. So 8 feet, you would be surprised to see how sitting this magic number away makes a difference.

I lived with it for about six weeks, then took the back off the TV. Just now it seems to be fixed, but I don't know if it will last.
I disconnected the wire leading to the channel up/down, volume up/down and source board, turned on the tv, turned it back off, reconnected the cable, and everything seems fine now.

There is a problem with the power supply in your TV. The regulator switch is causing teh clicking sound you hear. In order to fix it, you will need to replace the power supply. This is done by taking off the back cover of the TV, locating the power supply which is usually a yellow board that will have many high voltage capicators on it and replacing it with a new one.

The easiest way is to reset the TV. There are 3 possible resets for this TV. press and hold Action and Power on the TV until self check appears-- then unplug the TV wait for 30 sec. then plug back in. The reset should take care of any channel lock/ game guard settings
Also Volume down on unit and sleep on remote. Same process wait for self check then unplug for 30 sec. plug back in and turn on.
Last Volume down on the unit and RH-Split on the remote-- same process
hope this will be helpfull. Please rates me . Goodluck...................
