Cant get the tv to power up

No power up. The tv makes a "click" noise when pluged in , but fails to power up when the "on" button is pressed. Also tried with the remote with no luck.. Removed the back panel to inspect for possible blown fuse. Replaced the visual ones and still no response from the power switch. - Inspected the power cord... no irregularities - double checked the outlet, all is functional - Inspected the rear panel with board cover removed, and plugged in the power cord and tried to pinpoint clicking noise. seems to get power, but fails to power-up by either the front power-on switch or the remote. Question....? Is there any special fuses that burn out that are not visually acccessable with rear board off? John H

When press power button, power light comes on, but tv does not come on

Does the weird noise sound like a whining noise? Like something is spinning? If so then your color wheel is going out.

We were watching tv and there was a pop the screen went out and now there is a red button just to the left of the power button blinking and making a clicking noise?

A pop means that a component inside the tv has failed the big way - it has exploded. The red button that blinks is the status light - it signals that a massive short has been detected and the power source of the tv has been forcefully shut down. The clicking comes from the source, it keeps trying to start so the protection system keeps shutting it down.
The failed component will have to be identified, replaced and the rest of the tv tested to check what other damage has occurred and fix it. This is a job for a pro, no way you can fix that yourself. Unplug the tv from the wall - leaving it powered only makes the damage greater - and call one.

52" rear projection tv has no power and fuse is ok

The clicking noise that you are hearing is actually the power relay. Normal operation by either the remote or the power button on the front panel, you would normally hear a soft click just after the press of the power buttons to turn the unit on or off. When you initially plug the unit in to power, you will hear the same click noise. Being that you are hearing it all the time indicates a failed relay. TV's now a days, or at least ones built during the last 15 - 20 years have different Printed Circuit Boards (PCB). There are PCB's for power (which youre dealing with now), sound,video and so on. The PCB that you need to repair your clicking issue will run you about 80 U.S. dollars for the part plus the average going rate for repair from a qualified service tech. You could purchase the part from Thompson Consumer Products repair and fix it yourself, but be aware, there will be no warranty on the part itself unless an authorized tech does the work. Located on this PCB is the power on/off relay, fuse, usually 4-5 connectors for power to different PCB's (depending on model and features). Now depending on how old the TV actually is, you may want to invest in a newr set, the reason why I say that is, is because the new power unit may and can overload the other boards and cause damage to them and now you have a new problem to deal with( along with more money being tossed down a hole.

Good luck

Mitsubishi VS-6041 60 in. doesn't power up

Hello Tremulant

This denotes a possible problem with the Low or high voltage power supplies. The clicking you here might be the shutdown circuit acting because of excessive draw of current. The problem will most likely be associated with the HV power supply, but you will have to have a qualified TV technician check your TV to make sure.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

TV Turned off, now there is a clicking noise when plugged in.

had a 51" GE rear projection donated to myself. While off and power button pressed there was a clicking noise from the front of the unit. Rear cover was removed and it could be observed that the hv splitter had a crack in the casing and the power was arcing out of the splitter. I purchased a $72 dollar hv splitter, i read that the $20-$30 dollar one would break within a year, and the unit powered up no problems.
