Re: no picture and clicking sound only

This may be a power supply problem or a shorted horizontal output transistor shorted. The clicking sound is the power supply trying to start but can't because of the overload. Stargazer

I have a sony 32'' I think. model # KV-32FS10, serial #8047927, made Jan 2000. During a move, the tv was dropped and now when you press the power, your hear the click, the red click light flashes...

It sounds like that in the drop you may have cracked the main PCB. The PCB's usually crack around the heaviest part of the PCB. Probably around the flyback transformer.

No picture or audio.power light blink on once and turns off

The real deal here is the protection circuit has activated. This is caused whenever an excessive amount of current is being drawn from the main power supply. Upon detection of same, it immediately takes over the power management of the set and shuts it down. The clicking sound you hear is the ON relay turning on the set, but immediately the power mangement system shuts it OFF. You should hear two clicks, but they may be so close together that it sounds like one click.

This set is getting rather ancient and I would not recommend you spend much money on it for this reason: It is highly likely that once the set if repaired that another failure would occur. This is because of the law of averages; the first failure is often followed by another failure from anywhere within the set.

The sound that you hear is coming from the sound detector not working or not receiving any audio. If the set is set to a second audio (SAP) program this could be you trouble. Some programs are broadcast this way. (such as Spanish for Spanish speaking people. Check you audio program settings.
