Not economically. The ticking sound is a sure sign of high-voltage shutdown, and is coming from your flyback transformer - the most expensive part in the TV besides the picture tube. Even if it's not the flyback, troubleshooting the high voltage section is usually more than the cost of a new TV.

Tic tic tic sound when switced on no sound no video

:That sound usually means the power supply cannot start--due to an overload or overvoltage problem. Likely a few bad capacitors in feedback area or some short in horiz. area, possibly convergence chips if a tube set.

It sounds like you may have a faulty ingnition switch,very common on this year model,If so it will require some special tools that you may not have.
best bet is to take it to a know shop.

Check the voltage on your battery. When the battery is low, you will still have lights and what not but not enough juice to start the car. Check the condition of your battery cables especially your ground. If everything check out fine, your problem may be a bad starter or the solenoid. If you replace the starter, replace the solenoid with it. Be sure to check the cable from the starter solenoid to the starter.

Toshiba 24AF41 24" TV Problem

The tic tic sound is a device called safety switch that keeps turning your TV off because an internal fault, such as a defective component or a wrong voltage is detected.
When is like that we say the tv is in protected mode.

Start unplugging TV power cord for one or two hours (it is called hard reset), this will drain power from tv and seset internal circuit, and sometimes can clear the error message, if the fault was only temporary.

If the problem does not go, then you have to troubleshoot the problem, probably some component inside the tv is faulty and may need to be replaced. If you want to do it yourself is better to buy the service manual.
Here you can buy parts and service manual.

If you need to call for repair you can use the phone number listed on the TV owner manual.

Mine did the same, Ceramic Disk Capacitor C506 was burned out.

If you got a nasty smell of burning plastic, that might be it. At least that's what I got.
