Lost picture have sound on 55" Samsung led TV. Just went black all of a sudden two days ago.

Does the power light indicate power when it's plugged into the wall? When you press power, do you hear a clicking noise? If so, google your model # plus clicking noise power on

Not sure how old a Samsung TV you are talking about, but they had major problems with capacitors (widespread issue) in their TV's. Easy fix and something you can do yourself.

While listening to music channel on uverse, the tv went black, no sound, clicking noise

usually clicking is bad capacitors or it could be a short on your power supply. Try unplugging power, wait 2 minutes, plug back in. If it still clicks, you can look inside for bad caps.. =
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

My TV does not power up when the power button is pressed.

It's sounds like your lamp or backlight has went out, I suggest reading your manual for service info and look online for a local repair shop.

Sony KT-T25SF8 Dead, no video or audio, low level clicking noise

Most likly the Horizontal output transistor has shorted out because of cold solder connections on the flyback transformer, and or a bad capacitor in the sweep power supply and or, a bad flyback transformer. If the set Did not blow the fuse, then mopst likly you will have a problem in the main power supply where several parts in a kit form has and should be replaced all together.

Mitsubishi VS-6041 60 in. doesn't power up

Hello Tremulant

This denotes a possible problem with the Low or high voltage power supplies. The clicking you here might be the shutdown circuit acting because of excessive draw of current. The problem will most likely be associated with the HV power supply, but you will have to have a qualified TV technician check your TV to make sure.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Constant clicking every half-second as soon as you plug it in.

I have the same problem-still far still not find the cause. DM1 power supply output voltages are operates correctly. Signal output of microprocessor up and down (no good) that turn on Q14105 and latch optical isolator U14102 to power the unit but both of ohmed out ok. it hard to troubleshoot the main board with power on.
