I had the same problem, but I saw the events leading to it. I was watching TV, went to help the wife, heard a pop, came back to find the TV off. Turned it on, heard the same click you described. I believe you need a new bulb. Mine lasted around 2 years of heavy use. Bought two on ebay. Make sure to consult your manual for the particulars on the bulb.

Laptops don't boot for the following reasons: 1) Bad Power Cord. 2) Bad
DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop. 3) Static
Charge Buildup. 4) Bad Motherboard.
The above 4 reasons are when
you press the power button and absolutely nothing happens. You hear no
fans running, no disk drive running, no one time clicking sound on the
CD Drive and No light for a second or two when the CD drives click. In
the case of a motherboard issue sometimes you will hear beep sounds or
see blinking lights. Those beep sounds and blinking lights tells the
technician what is going on with your motherboard and why it will not
boot. If you see the blinking lights or hear beeps count them.
So you have a power light which means your power cord and
dc power jack is good. So lets see if you have a static charge buildup.
the Power Cord and the Battery from the laptop, then Press and Hold the
Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back
into the laptop, but leave the battery out. Press the power button to
see if it boots. If it does you had a Static Charge Buildup and it's ok
to put your battery back in. If it does not you more than likely have
an issue with your motherboard.
You need to be more specific and tell what happens when you plug in the power cord and press the power button. There are a number of reason why a computer will not boot, but if you tell what's going on someone can help you.
Computers don't boot for basically the following reasons, 1) the power supply is bad. That means when you plug it in you don't see any lights, and when you press the power button nothing happens, you hear no fans, no beeps, no blinking lights, no hard drive spinning, no cd drive clicking and nothing appears on the lcd screen.
2) A motherboard issue, usually when this happens you will either see blinking lights or hear beeps. Those blinking lights and beeps are codes that tell the technician what is really going on.
3) Static Buildup - try removing the battery and the power cord then Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and Press the Power Button. If it boots up you had static buildup and can replace the battery, count your blessings and Thank The Lord cuz a dishonest repairman would have told you he had to replace the motherboard for $300
When I turn on the TV I hear the click sound and the TV powers up. Immediatly the red (standby) light begins to flash 6 times on and off. this happenes only in the morning, but after 5:00PM when youturn on the TV as if nothing is wrong.
This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input/device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source.
The blinking light means almost 100% that the high voltage circuit has failed. Probably need a new horizontal output transistor and flyback. Perhaps an associated resistor or diode. If you have the expertise go for it, otherwise take it to a professional. In any case be extremely careful and safe. Good luck.
