TV Clicks on but does not start

When I hit the power button (Remote or TV) The TV clicks on about four times and then nothing happens. Can this be a sign that the tube is fried? RCA, F27664 Overall it has been a very good television for 6 years. Thanks Keith

Sound like you have a bad capacitor in the horizontal deflection circuit check c14406 & c14402. each part is about $10.00. + you local shop rate. good luck.

Sony Trinitron color TV 36 inch


You should examine the input power of the TV. If you dare to open the back of the TV You should examine the by using the tester to test the continuity of the voltage input of the TV. i guess voltage regulator need to be tested.

Be careful high voltage inside the TV.

The best way is to contact the vendor of the TV or sony service center in your area.

may this help,

TV set will not switch on.either with the remote or with the power button. Intermittent fault.

From my experience, your inverter starter circuit is bad. The "click" then nothing or in some cases a popping sound from the speakers as well, means that one or some of the capacitors on the main power section of the control board are leaking voltage to the point that they no longer have a strong enough charge to "jump" the circuit that starts the picture, and when that happens it turns the set back off. leaving the tv alone for an hour or so will allow it to charge the capacitors back up just enough to jump it once and then the problem comes back. There is no easy fix for this problem and soon it will stop turning on at all. some people have had success when "whacking" the side of the tv seems silly but I've seen it actually work. It's only temporary though and that circuit will fail. If you have a great attachment to this tv, go get it fixed at the repair shop. If not, then just go get a new one. This happens to all types of tv's eventually.

good day sir, hi, as you know it is dangerously working with this type of appliances, you should let the diagnosis to an expert in TV, or else more damage may happen, worst you may get an electric shock.
The problem part MAY be anywhere in the power supply section, a faulty voltage regulator, an open low value resistor, a leaking capacitor, or a defective switching controller IC, this are to be checked thoroughly.

You need to bring it to a TV technician. There is a relay inside the TV which can be blocked by any few errors that may occur in your TV, for protection. Only a tech may discover the problem.

TV Clicks on over and over

When you get this "click" it is the power supply trying to start. This indicates a short somewhere. Most of the time it is the horizontal output transistor and probably the flyback transformer that have shorted. Stargazer

No nothing

I am sure it can be repair,Checking the fuse was good idea but it seems the problem might be farther ahead,if you have no indication of power(no lights,no clicks)the problem might be in the power supply,there is a 5 volts supply that has to be running because is the power to the microprocessor(brain)and when you push the power button on the remote or the set the brain knows it and send the commands to everyone else to turn on,if you have the 5 volts and the brain is working the problem might be in the horizontal circuit ,possibly a bad horizontal output transistor(shorted)if he is bad it might have taken a fuse or a safety resitor.Some fuses dont look like the average fuse,they look more like resistors.If you are familiar with tv service We can give you all the help you need to find the problem ,if you are not too familiar with servicing electronics you might want to call servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.
