    I have a similar problem. My TV turns on, but then turns off within 5 seconds. I do hear a clicking sound when it turns immediately on then again when it turns off. On the screen it does show gray with white lines across the screen. I am debating on weather to buy a new TV or bring it in to get fixed. Obviously with how the economy is I can not afford to buy a new one OR pay a high price to get it fixed. Prior to this for about a couple months captions were showing on the screen but we just random letters. Help?

This noise come from a component that needs soldering, probably comes from one of the terminal were by any reason is not doing good contact. Or is the flyback, a component that uses high voltages to accelerate the rays inside the tube.Unfortunately, is not a big deal for a regular technician, but is a big trouble if you try tio open the TV. Is very risky because the mentioned component, along with others usually they work at ranges ol voltages of 50,000 or more volts. Although the current is not much, the shock is very unconfortable. Don't try, take it to a tech.

My 37 in rca, model # L37WD12, Will not fully turn on. it tries to come on, but the green light just flashes. and the tv makes a small ticking noise that goes with the flashing. how do i fix this or what...


The inverter is probably bad - the ticking noise you hear is high voltage that is trying to turn on the backlight from the inverter's transformer but cannot. The only way to fix this is to open the TV and locate the problem around the inverter circuitry. Another possibility is there is an open circuit run around the inverter and may just need some solder to bridge the open.

I have a ticking noise when i try to turn on the tv..


Try putting on the back piece. Some of these TVs have a circuit protection system that will not deactivate with the back open. (It is like an old circuit breaker with the fuse out.)

I hope this helps.

This is caused by a blend door actuator on the rear a/c unit. There are 2 located on the case. Take it to a dealer and they will know what you are talking about.

WHEN I PLUG IN TV THE TIMER LIGHT IN THE FRONT COMES ON BUT THE SCREEN WONT COME ON AND I CAN HEAR A TICKING NOISE


the ticking comes from overcurrent circuit protection there are several areas inside the tv that could be causing this. The most common are the horizontal drive and output circuit and the power supply. If you call your area service tech he can give you a good idea on what the repair costs will run.
