TV makes clicking sound when power cord is plugged in

Our TV all of the sudden just makes a clicking sound, like it is trying to turn on, when you plug it in. It makes the sound over and over again. Tried to unplug for awhile to no avail. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Panasonic cinemavision 1080i power light blinks red twice, will not turn on

The clicking sound is a safety device that prevents that TV from starting because a fault has been detected.

The fault is also indicated by the two blinks. Two blinks point at a problem with one of the low voltage lines (it should be 15V) from the power supply. The PSU is the part to be tested and eventually replaced. Before calling the technician try to unplug the power cord and leave the TV to rest for about one hour before restarting.

Tv won't turn on

I think its a defective convergence chip/circuit and need a tech to replace it. It could cost about $300 or so.

Focus hitachi 60fx32b was watching this tv and it suddenly turned off and wont power back on

Try to plug it into a different electrical socket and try it without any extension cords or power strips (sometimes the socket or extension cord is to blame)

Tv wont turn on

I have a Philips 60" Rear Projection, and all of a sudden I have no picture or sound. I push the power button, and all it does is click. It will keep clicking until I turn it off. Anyone seen this problem?

ICs + resistors swapped= blue power light auto on clicking noise

Unplug the power to the convergence board. If it turns on, you still have a problem in the convergence circuit.

Sony Grand WEGA KF42WE610 42" turns on and off

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

Please make sure that the videos sources are connected properly to the TV.

Try Power Resetting the TV.

Please disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet (for approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and check whether the issue is resolved.

Also try connecting the TV to a different wall outlet and check if that helps.

No Power, standby light blinking, power cord in/out two quick clicks

sounds to me to be a shorted HOT transistor or short somewhere. the click sound is the switch mode power suppy powering up sensing a short and quickly shuts down. the hot transitor is mounted to a heatsink near your flyback. check for emitter to collector short. you can try replacing it if shorted and if lucky that all that was ..but if shorts again you looking at probably a bad flyback. good luck

Mitsubishi VS-5041 (TV turns on but no pic or sound)

Your problem is one and or 2 differant problems. The power regulator could have went bad because of the convergence IC have shorted. Seen this a thousand(easy that!)Times. All parts in this set are soldered in and are not user serviceable. look in your owners manual or call 800-332-2119 to get an authorized servicer to come and look at your problem . I wish i could tell you what to replace but theres the Extreme Hi voltage inside these sets even when they are not plugged in .. Good Luck
