The ticking noise usually comes from the power section of the tv. Usually it is a capacitor failing. As far as the cost of repair this can go either way ie cheap or expensive. It will dpend on what exactly has failed and if it requires a board replacement or just a part.
I'm going to assume this isn't under warrenty anymore. It is covered if it is. You need to get some repair estimates from Samsung and any tv repair shops. Then keep and eye out for a replacement. Make sure you include any shipping costs or other costs when you are totaling up the estimates. If it gets close to the replacement cost then you will have to choose if you want a new tv or have a repair done.
