Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
Sounds like the typical Flyback and shorted horizontal output transistor. Problem is the transformer is NO Longer Available

As far as fixing goes, you might as well get a new TV... Unless its a LARGE EXPENSIVE HOLY $%^# TV, It will cost more to fix, than to just buy a new one, unless its under warranty, which being an older model as that (or so im reading) It may not be covered.
Try unplugging the TV, and while unplugged, hold down the power button for a full minute (yes, with the plug NOT in the wall) after a minute, plug it back in, and try. Its a hard reset. If it still does not work, and you've tried different outlets, It's probably a repair issue, and you'll need to get someone to fix it, or just junk it :-/

I had the a similar issue. But on mine the first symptoms I had was that the screen would shrink and then expand over and over. After thrity minutes it would correct itself.
After a few months of doing this it just broke - no sound and no video but the power light was still on.
I gave up and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes . I put together a how to guide and parts kit to help others solve the same problem. Not sure if it will work for you - my set never made the clicking sound - but it may be the same issue. http://www.magnavoxhelp.com

SOURCE: TV turns off by itself
ok , first you will need to check the controls panel on the front board, take it out of there and make sure that the buttons are not being pushed on and check the sensor for a short or open also the contact switches are not making continuity(short) then also unplug the controls panel from the main board
and please give me a fixya rating so that i may continue to help you with this problem( anything other than a fixya rating hurts our rating as a fixya expert) that is if you belive that my help will be beneficial to you, thanks

check for an open resistor on the power supply, it is actually a fusible resistor, (white) if open, then check the converter, some sets have two separate and some have it as one. it will be on a heat sink on the power supply. if shorted then check for a shorted horizontal output transistor and repair cold solder joints on the horizintal drive transformer which is the real cause of this problem
