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!

40" Samsung LN40B610 1080p LCD HDTV suddenly turned off; will not turn back on (NO red light or clicking sound)

Here is a place that I buy parts from: It is pretty inexpensive. Note though that with a big screen television, the service people come to your home and then you get charged for a service trip fee. So if you want to save money on this, take the set to them! You should know that those sets have to be transported verticle or the screen will break.

I just bought a new 40 in. philips LCD television. I plugged the power cord into the tv then into the wall outlet. the tv will not turn on or make any sounds when trying to turn it on with remote and...

Hello, make sure power cord is pushed in all the way in to the tv. Also make sure you have power at your outlet. I know it sounds dumb, but I've seen people chase their tail for hours before coming to the conclusion that a circuit breaker was tripped. Make sure you have good batteries in the remote. If the TV has a power button on the tv, try turning it on there instead of the remote. You can check to see if there is an on/off switch in the back. Besides this it should be pretty straight forward. You might have a defective tv
Hope this helps
Thank you in advance for your feedback

Power button makes a click, click sound

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

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
