Clicking noise When I turn on the TV there is a clicking sound. Even while the tv is on the clicking continues. I have to turn the tv off and back on several times for it to go away. I have had a tech over to see what the problem and he could not find the problem. Sounds like the tv is arching . Any suggestions

The clicking noise is a protection circuit that prevents the TV from switching on when a fault is detected.

That means that there is a short, a bad solder joint, or a bad component inside the TV, usually any good technician is able to find out at least the nature of the fault. Often this jobs must be done at a repair shop, as testing may take time, probably your technician was just in a hurry.

All you can try at home is leaving tv unplugged for a couple of hours, this drains power from the set , and fix some problem.
If it does not work send it to a repair shop.

Philips TV making a strange clicking noise


A model number would be helpful to answer this but:

This clicking sounds (no pun) like either a mechanical relay in the set's power supply or possible arcing somewhere in the set.

These sets also have a shutdown feature that if engaged may sound like a tic-tic sound.

Let me know model number which is not indicated on this question here.

I have a JVC AV-65WP74, I went to bed watching the TV then turned it off for the night but the next day when I turned it back on the blue light came on on the TV but no picture, the TV makes a fast...


The clicking you hear is probably caused by a relay that controls the incoming AC to the main power supply. This is a protective reaction to a problem in the power supply itself or an overload due to a failure downstream from the supply. This is not a likely DIY repair. You will probably need a technician to determine which of these two likely problems it is.

TV will not turn on. It makes a nonstop clicking noise.


Sounds to me like the high voltage power supply is attempting to fire off the metal halide lamp without success.
