Clicks, then powers off

That pretty much sums it up...the set turns on without a problem, makes a rapid clicking noise, then turns itself off. What might need to be replaced? Is it "fixable"?

    Thanx, fredcause, but we are shipping the combo back to the mnf; my husband took the tv apart, but there was no bulb where the clicking sound was coming from (sounds like the VCR area.) Appreciate your suggestion, though!

Car won't turn over good batt.?


What sounds does it make? If you hear rapid clicks - the battery has power, just not enough or the connection to the battery is loose. Please give us some more info on the vehicle itself, and what you see and hear.

Rapid clicking noise when trying to start the engine?


Hi There,

You turn the key to start your engine and....
a series of rapid clicks. Your car won't start. What's going on?

That clicking noise is your starter solenoid.

Your starter needs a lot of power to turn your engine. That much power would melt your ignition switch in no time if it passed directly through it. So what happens instead is your ignition switch actuates another electric switch called a solenoid. The solenoid is a really HEAVY DUTY switch.

Inside it are two copper contacts that look like the head of a bolt only rounded. The battery is attached to one, the starter to the other. Hovering above them on a spring is a copper clad disk attached to an iron core. The iron core is inside an electro-magnet.

When you turn your key (in a perfect world), an electromagnet is activated that yanks the disk towards the contacts (Making a single decisive healthy CLICK). When they connect, the circuit is closed and the starter turns over. OK.

When things go wrong:

Low Battery:
  • The solenoid requires power to actuate.
  • The starter takes a lot more power to turn the engine.
  • When the battery is low, there isn't enough power to do both.
  • You turn the key, solenoid engages (CLICK)
  • Power goes to the starter
  • The starter tries to turn the engine
  • The draw from the starter drops the available power below the minimum needed to keep the solenoid engaged.
  • The solenoid disengages
  • The starter is no longer drawing power
  • The additional power allows the solenoid to re-engage (Click)
  • Repeat the process for as long as you have the key turned. (CLICKCLICKCLICKCLICK)
That's where those clicks are coming from and why.

The remedy:
Short term - Jump start
Long term - Charge or replace battery.


I wanted to explain what was happening rather than just saying 'dead battery, replace it'. That way you can judge for yourself whats going on.

Best regards
Mike

Sanyo. Why no power?


The label pretty much sums it up. The unit was made in 2008, which makes it 7 years old. Unlike the older CRT sets, which could often last 10-15 years or more, these newer units are lucky to last 5-7 years without repair. You are actually a lucky one to get that much out of it. And, seeing that it is rated at 190 watts (most today are less than 50), you would most likely be best served getting a new one. These sets have changed rapidly over the past decade, and thousands of models have been produced. Many models are available only a short time, making parts hard to get and over-priced. Manufacturers are building these to be throw-away devices and you are usually better off doing just that, sadly enough.

When turning over starter just clicks. there is power to the battery. it can be push started.it will not jump at the celeniod


One single click when you turn the key is a pretty good indicator that the starter is bad. If you hear multiple rapid clicks than its usually the battery. Since the vehicle will push start and run it sounds like you will be replacing the starter.

Starter clicks rapidly, not cranking, no ignition


It almost sounds like you have a loose connection at the battery. If the connection is loose it can cause the starter to click as you have described. Also it could be the starter itself. If the starter is bad (locked up) it can make the clicking noise and not start the engine. If you can get to the starter, try to tap on it with a hammer while someone is trying to start the engine. I hope this helps.

Power on and yet picture flicks and powers it's self off (over and over again)


First it's not just Philips, they all are making TV to only last a few years now, they are not made to last, thats how they make money by selling you something you will have to replace in just a few short years. As far as your problem, you may have a cold solder joint somewhere, do you have a 25/35 watt soldering iron? if so try soldering pins on the regulator IC the vertical IC the horz output transistor and drive transformer and the flyback, in fact solder just about as much as you can, spend some time in there soldering. Dont forget to ubplug the set and stay away from the high voltage anode connected to the picture tube, it can still hold a charge even if the set is unplugged, do not try to take it off. Hope this helps!
