Hello pak11,

The clicking sound, may be the shutdown circuit activating a kill relay. This is an indication that there is a problem in the HV section of your TV. This may be the horizontal output transistor or one of the other components in the HV section. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician examine the TV because the HV section is very dangerous and should be troubleshot and worked on by a person who is skilled in the area of TV repair. This problem may be as simple as replacing the Horizontal output transistor, however this task should only be done by a qualified TV technician.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Turns on but doesn't do anything else. Screen doesn't come on. Can hear a clicking sounds like a turn signal sound.

looks like a( DLP) tv digital light proccessor . aka projection. most likely the bulb is burned out . if so cost is $65-125 bucks. aftermarket bulbs are available online but some dont work or burn out prematurely. if you decide to fix it or buy a new tv ,invest in a surge protector. it will save your tv from problems like this . good luck.

Power Problems

Try leaving it unplugged overnight. It is possible it needs to discharge. If that doesn't work, I'd say you either have a bad switch, or a bad power supply. Hopefully the switch, because that's much easier to fix. Can you bridge the switch connectors with a wire? If it doesn't come on and stay on when you do that, it's a power supply issue (and not nearly as simple to fix).

That's usually caused by power issues in the house. Try plugging the TV into a power conditioning power strip, or UPS. Then, stop by Radio Shack for a noise filter for the cable input.

If that doesn't do it, you've got a capacitor on a board that arcing out, in all probability.

RCA TruFlat 32" Blue light flickers, clicking noises, help!

OK for the start, try this unplugged your unit for about 60 sec. Then plugged it again and switch on. Does it help?

If not then dont connect your surge protector in line for the meantime. Power the unit. This is to isolate whether your surge protector is defective or not. Does it help?

If not, this could down to your high voltage section, if this is a crt tube tv. You might loose your flyback transformer, and or the horizontal output transistor. Checking its peripheral component is a must. That clicking noise is the relay, thus this have relay?

If your not into electronic, have it service.

I'm afraid this failure is not just a fuse failure in your TV since you still can hear the relay clicking. This fix might not be a DIY.
Where can I send you additional info on what could be wrong with your TV?

So far you have done all you can and you have done everything right. The fact that the TV turned off by itself and then turned back on by itself suggests that one or more solder joints have come loose inside the set. A qualified tech should find this easy to fix, and Sony sets are always worth repairing, so it is now time to have the set serviced by a tech experienced in Sony standard sets.

Tv no start up, fuses ok.

Telling someone to get professional help would be the obvious response from a TV repairman who wants to charge someone at least half the cost of TV replacement to fix it. People get on here so the can try and avoid the high cost of tv repair. How about giving advice on how to fix it which is why the got on here to begin with.
