Electricution sound w/ clicking noises and no picture

I was watching tv then all of a sudden, a sound simalar to something being "electricuted" and the tv screen went blank. Now when I press the power button, all u hear is a rapid clicking sound in the back and the tv wont turn on. What is that? The tv is only 2 years and 4 months old!

    Well, our TV got fixed...we actually got our renters insurance to cover it.....we said that "weather" was a factor...anyhoo, we found a tv repair guy and when he took apart the bottom half of the tv, one of the circuts were "burnt". Whatever that means, but the fact that this TV was only a couple years old really pissed me off! And i see that I wasnt the only one with that strange "coinsidence"

That same problem is why I am searching the net for R40W46 information. It appears this is a common failure. I cleaned the dust out and plugged it back in and turned it on. The problem is a High Voltage leak on one of the guns. That is all I know.

 

I tried to find and authorized Zenith repair shop. The nearest one is over 120 miles away. Unless I can find a schematic and information on parts pricing, this expensive TV, less than 3 years old, is not going to get repaired.

Lost picture have sound on 55" Samsung led TV. Just went black all of a sudden two days ago.


Does the power light indicate power when it's plugged into the wall? When you press power, do you hear a clicking noise? If so, google your model # plus clicking noise power on

Not sure how old a Samsung TV you are talking about, but they had major problems with capacitors (widespread issue) in their TV's. Easy fix and something you can do yourself.

Before you think it is the board you need to troubleshoot the compressor. With a meter you can check if it is;
SHORTED
GOUNDED
OPEN
BURNT OUT
IF IT HAS POWER
CAPACITOR WORKING OR NOT

THIS IS JUST POSSIBLITIES.

Because there is a danger of electricution 220v only a qualified HVAC tech should attempt to troubleshoot your problem

52" plasma tv - turns on - and I hear something reset inside


i hear a clicking noise- the clicking noise is most likely you ballast trying to power the lamp, but failing. this may indicate a defective ballast if you have recenty purchased a new lamp.I recomend you have your lamp tested to help narrow down the cause of the defect. It's highly unlikely for a new lamp to be dead on arrival

Convergence problem


I have this exact model TV, and my red bulb was the primary culprit. I almost had it, but then a lot of fluid came from underneath the bulb? I had to turn it off in fear of electricution. Ended up selling the TV.

Loud electrical sounds


It sounds like the Power transistor that drives the High Voltage Transformer shorted out. The rapid clicking sound you are hearing when pressing the power button now is that of the power supply starting to come up, detecting a short circuit and shutting back off again, preventing further damage. It is likely that the HV Transformer is shorted as well which usually causes the Output transistor to fail. Since the set is only 2 1/2 years old, it is probably worthwhile getting it to a repair shop as long as you have been very satisfied with the picture quality up to this point. If the picture size was larger than you needed, you might consider going down to a 37" LCD HDTV set. Toshiba is tops in this category IMHO.
