Re: Sounds like it wants to turn on but shuts off
Sorry but the clicks is the protect circuit saying you got a big problem. Usually, there is a short condition inside. If you have a multimeter you can start around the HV circuit checking for shorted caps or diodes or Transistors, otherwise it's a shop repair...Safety first....residual voltage remains even with power off, so be careful..
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

im going to say an almost dead battery .the hum you hear might be the fuel pump.you never heard it before because the van normaly starts .so boost your van if it starts you may have to replace the altenator the guages, no worries many cars do that .thats a code needing erased and if you disconnect the battery that may go away.
If you hear any noises from a fuel pump that's probably not a good sign, but I'd suggest checking your starter if the car wont turn over. If you think fuel is the problem check for any leaks that are visible, it could be a vacuum leak but I doubt that because that wouldn't prevent the car from starting.
you got a YLOD yellow light of death when you get a yellow light briefly and then the red lights start blinking, you need to reflux the solder on the processors and apply heat to them, here is a link on how to do the repair, if you are not good at doing these kind of work, I would suggest taking it to a pro. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIm0Qk0CVTE&feature=related

The same thing happened to me today. I was just sitting in my room then i hear a click and the cpu is on it stays on for a while then cuts off. It then cuts on and off with few seconds in between. It then stays in that way cutting and off for about a minite or two and then cuts off completely. A few minutes later it starts again. Also in the time it its off it will not turn on by pressing the power button. Sometimes it completly boots up by itself and then shuts itself down. If I shut it down manually while its on it'll turn itself on immeditaly after. What's going on! Will the warranty cover it? Do I need a new computer?
Power supply may be burned out. These can be replaced but your local Panasonic service center will identify and correct any other lingering problems. (cooling, shorts, and general cleaning) Try thier support center website under the web address once you get on the main panasonic site.
Hello there, I'm having a major problem with my TV, I have called all
of the local TV repair shops and they all are the same, they want money
money money before they will even speak with me about the problem I'm
having. This is the only TV in my entire household for a family of 4
and we desperately need the TV in working condition for our kids. I
don't want to have to put out $500 for another set if I don't
absolutely have to.
About 3-4 months ago the TV when turned on, the picture would slowly
come into view and be very scrambled and before the picture would come
into complete view the TV power would shut itself off, but the power
light would remain on. You can hear the "Click" noise when it would
shut itself off.
2-3 seconds after it 'shut itself off' then the TV would make the
"Click" noise (The same noise it makes when you first turn it on), it
would make the "Click" noise over and over and over again but nothing
would happen. So i would turn it off and on again and change the
channel rapidly until after 2-3 minutes it would come into view and
So we decided to leave the TV on 24 hours a day. Then today we awoke
and it was off and making the "clicking" noise over and over and over
again but with no picture or sound. Now it wont even turn on/off it
just sits there and goes "Click, Click Click Click" and doesn't do
I described the problem as best as I can. Here is the TV information and specifications...
Philips 27 Inch Tube TV
Model Number... 27PT54 3S37A
Serial Number... 78438404
Date Code March 2003
Now that I typed the model number there are threads everywhere people
saying the same issue exactly as me, I will read them but please
someone tell me is there anything I can do...
Can anyone explain exactly what is wrong with the Tv and why it's doing this?
Also, what should I expect to pay to repair it?
Any information or help would be appreciated very much.
Thanks in advance,
Just got off the phone with certified Philips shop...they said they
will repair it for $100-$130 with a $25 down payment just drop it off
and he will call me when its done. Does this sound like its worth it or
a rip off?
