Re: Continuous click noise like its trying to turn on but...
I have done some research and found a notorious cap and diode problem with this set. The two 4700uf caps (C14113 and C14115) on the DM1 power board (the board to the left of the sat. box when you look at the set from the back) are under rated and will eventually fail. When these caps fail they tend to take out diode CR14105. This may be your problem. If it is, you can replace the caps with 4700uf 25V 105c and the same as original diode.

After switching off the aa1, when trying to turn it on again, it just shows blinking leds and the fan is turning. But the screen remains black. If your aa1 does like this probably its BIOS has been damaged...
Luckily the Acer Aspire One has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore.
Please note that the process I'm about to describe is only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.
1) Format a USB memory key with the FAT mode. 2) Download the latest version of the BIOS from Acer support website: 3) Extract the files from the zip and put both the FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the memory key. 4) Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD and then remove the disk. 5) Turn the AA1 off, insert the battery and connect the AC adapter. 6) Insert the USB Memory Key into one of the USB port of the Aspire One. 7) Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. 8) Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. 9) Press the power button once. The AA1 will start the BIOS flash, do not interrupt for any reason. After some minutes the power button will stop blinking, and then the AA1 will reboot. Wait till the AA1 has completed all this operations.
If everything has gone right, the BIOS is flashed and all settings are reset to default.
tv wont turn on when i hit power it makes the clicking noise like it is going to turn on, but never does and the red timer light next to the power button just flashes. help! trinitron kv29f1u only clicks and blinks
The slight flash on the screen is usually because the CRT (picture tube) is holding a better than average charge and this is what we call "pre-glow" The noise that you hear, is that everytime you turn it on or just after it has been off for a while? If only after the set has been sitting off for a while then your noise is the internal degauser for the CRT and that noise is 100% normal. The degausers in Sony TV's are so strong they usually make the plastic cabinet vibrate a bit.
Turn off Continuous AF (auto focus) to prevent recording camera noise during video capture. When you turn off Continuous AF, you may notice a narrower area of focus or depth of field, especially if you zoomed to a telephoto position before recording.
Turn the Mode dial to Video, then press the Menu button.
Highlight the Continuous AF menu, then press the OK button.
Highlight Off, then press the OK button. (On is the default.)
Press the Menu button to turn off the menu screen.
This setting remains until you change it, change the Mode dial, or turn off the camera.
