Power supply has a ticking ticking blank screen no pix or sound

Sounds like a shorted H-out, likely due to a bad Flyback. That "chirping sound" is from the o0vercurrent protection in the power supply due to a short. Perhaps it is also a bad capacitor in the supply causing overvoltage shutdown too.

We have 20 extensions and 12 direct line and all the extensions are making a very light clicking sound, when we press 9 for outgoing line it displays message 'CO not assigned' and justs beeps. People...

The ticking doesn't sound good. Your dealer can probably help you, or you can help yourself if you're familiar with all the cabling. Start by disconnecting all but 2 lines and all the Amphenol cables but the bottom one (J1) on the base cabinet. The key is to isolate if you have a cabinet power supply problem or a bad station (shorted) port. By default, 81 on the intercom gets you line 1. If the ticking is still present with only one cable plugged in, try unplugging J1 and plug J2's Amp into J2.

There are other combinations and variations, mostly things like stripping off the extra trunk and stations cards, but if the basic still leaves you with a ticking, I'm voting for the power supply.

My Dell 1905FP 19 monitor went black & green power light flickers

It sound like a short circuit. I had this problem with 1907FP model. It had an USB port on the monitor which got damaged and it was shortening to the groung. In your case it might be a bad internal power supply board.

My 93 acura legend wont start. Ticking sound??

That sounds like a dead battery. The ticking sound is the relay (a type of switch) which enables power to the starter motor when you turn the key. If the battery is weak, the relay will click, but there is not enough power to turn the starter motor.

Dell GX270T won't boot, makes 'ticking' sound

Well old retired guy there is so many moving parts in a computer. the fans , on the processor ,the power supply, and one on the box of some.You have the cdrom , the a:/ drive and hard drive.You can unplug everyone except the power supply and it will still turn on. If the ticking still exist then its electrical snapping in the power supply.There is more than one voltage coming out of the power supply. Part of its 5 volt and part of it is 12 volt so then part of the supply could be working and another part not working.My guess is get a used power supply and it will work fine.
