Re: TV clicks but no sound or picture

This is a common problem for this set, The flyback transformer is bad and L4101 needs to be resoldered. Still like "profane" said, it will cost you almost as much to repair this tV set as a new one will. Good Luck

Re: TV clicks but no sound or picture

If this is a crt it is most likely not worth the repair specially considering the size of the set. Most parts for them cost more then the tv itself sorry for the bad news if its not a crt then thats a different story

Last night about 3 am I turned off my tv. when I usewd my remote to turn it back on it would not ( t v) come on and no picture or sound . I turned it around to see the back of it but it has no reset

Your TV have faults on Horizontal deflections, the oscillator and the Flyback might be the problems. If you are not familiar with TV circuits?... call tecnician to check your set.

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.

TV was Fine last night, this morning there is picture, but no sound

Since the you were vacuuming behind the set before this happened, I'm going to assume that you unplugged an input. Check the wiring, not just on the back of the set, but, on the back of the peripherals (DVD, Satelite, cable box, etc.) If wires are connected, then, take a component, such as a VCR or cable box and hook it up to the RF connector (AKA the cable connector) and run it on channel 3 or 4. If you have sound, then, you have a configuration problem and need to rewire your set. Hope this helps.
