Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
My Samsung LCD 40inch tv makes a clicking noise when I turn it on and there's no picture. I've tried connecting and reconnecting but this doesn't work. Any suggestions?

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. The question will be, is the part still available? Before paying a TV repair person $75+ to diagnose the problem, ask yourself if you're willing to pay $150 minimum to fix this particular set. Also keep in mind that most TVs that old have a very limited number of replacement parts still available. Normally it will cost at least $75 to have the set looked at by a repair shop (diagnostics). If the part needed to complete the repair isn't available, you won't get that money back.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

All of these tv's are board replacement only the individual parts are not available. The boards can cost anywhere form $200 - $400 each. Even if you do it yourself it is still an expense, if you get the blink code i can point you to the correct board. These sets have different boards even within the same model range. One of the first diagnostics is does the back light come on, if not then you either have a balancer error or a bad bulb in the panel. Why i suggest this is because it is the most common problem. If it is the bulb in the panel you have to replace the whole panel, the bulbs are not available as an individual part.

As said by others it is the cheap capacitors that samsung have put in.
When getting them replaced or replacing them yourself make sure you use the ones that have a higher temp threshold.
Just done mine myself, quite easy if you are ok with a soldering iron. the ones samsung used only had a 105 degrees max temp, i put in new ones with a max temp of 130 degrees so these will last longer. Remember the only way these tv`s turn off is at the power socket not by the button on the front.
