It sounds that the tuner to your TV is faulty. A detail check is necessary to confirm. Seek expert tech support.

Philips Magnavox 32MT3305 keeps shutting off with relay clicking. The green power light stays on but the picture and sound go out right after the orange status bar goes away. If the channel up or down...

the relay is the safety protective device..sometimes a defective component or something. maybe an overloaded power supply might caused this before any thing could gets worst..the relay will shut the unit..

Will not come on it only a clicking sound from part no. 0mron 0584H3

I had the same problem with my tv, same make and model. I first continuously turn on and off my tv manually until I could get some kind of picture. This procedure took maybe five minutes. I was able to get a fine picture and sound, as if it was brand new! Other things to keep in mind, try to eliminate dust build up as much as possible.. Hope this helps out...

This problem with your television set is more than likely a problem with intermittent component failure. The fact that the television turn on for awhile is a sign the the component or components are intermittent.The reason the television turns off is that it goes into the protection mode caused by the intermittent component or components. They are unstable and are causing unstable voltages supplies to appear in the circuits. The television has a built in feedback circuit that will detect the faulty operation and turn off the television. When it stabilizes again the television turn back on. This is usually a sign of aging or faulty components. The problem will only get worse and the television should be thoroughly tested. You can call Magnavox customer support at this telephone number 1-800-705-200. Give them the model number of your television and tell them about the problem you are having with intermittent turn on of the television. They will be able to tell you where to take the television for testing and service. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

I had the a similar issue. But on mine the first symptoms I had was that the screen would shrink and then expand over and over. After thrity minutes it would correct itself.

After a few months of doing this it just broke - no sound and no video but the power light was still on.

I gave up and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes . I put together a how to guide and parts kit to help others solve the same problem.  Not sure if it will work for you - my set never made the clicking sound - but it may be the same issue.
