There should be a short circuit inside the circuit board of your TV. You have to locate it. It is a skilled work. Be best to contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Poineer deck amplifier dc-z74 relays click but set deck does not come on no display lights dead unit

Part of your PowerSupply is Frito.
Probably the +/- 15 volt rails, could be other.
Check inside power voltages, probably some regulators are gone.
Preferably get a tech unless you have the know-how and test equipment...

Motorcycle Mechanic Advice on a 1992 Heritage softail. Having ignition problems. Lights come on and I get a clicking in the starter relay, but when I switch it to ignition, there it is completly dead....

I'm a little confused. You said that the lights come on and you get a clicking at the starter relay. Then you say that when you switch to igniton, everything goes dead. From the factory, you must first turn the switch to the ignition position before you can get anything, lights, starter, horn. Some guys set their switches up to be like an old style bike. First click is ignition, second click is ignition and lights. But, since most states now require you ride with your headlight on all the time, Harley simply wires the switch to a "one position" switch.

At first guess, I'd think you have a bad switch because you said the when you went to the "ignition" position, everything went dead.

But, you said that you could get lights and a clicking noise. If the clicking is coming from the small one inch plastic cube starter relay, you may or may not be getting power to the starter solenoid.

Look at the starter from the right side of the bike and you'll see a five sided plate with three small bolts holding on. At the top of this plate, you'll see a single wire connector. Unplug this wire and use either a test light or a volt meter to test for voltage on this wire when you press the start button and the starter relay clicks. If you do, the relay is good but something is wrong in the starter. If no voltage, the relay is not doing it's job.

Good Luck

RCA F36648 36' TV will not power on, makes a clicking sound when I try to power on

This set has a number of problem detection circuits and safety shutoffs. The clinking you are heearing is the power relay turning on then off as a problem is detected and hte set shuts down. This is normal expected behavior when the set has a problem. The most common cause of this is a defective horizontal output transistor that has failed. Expect a parts cost in the $30 range for this repair.

RCA P60920BL wont power up makes clicking sound

This is a chassis PTK195 and acommon fault with these sets, that causes the symptom you describe, is the flyback transformer goes bad.
If you're at all familiar with electronic repair you could start checking there (and horizontal output transistor shorts). If not have an RCA approved warrany repairer give you an estimate/service call.
Note: the good thing about these sets is the chassis is very common and easily removed for service (without bringing in the whole set.) .
Usual cost to repair flyback/ dead set symptoms $200-$350.

Won't turn on, relays click repeatedly

Flyback is the most problem assiociated with the clicking so a replacement will solve the issue..

Set is dead

Replace the Horizontal Output transistor and High-Voltage Transformer.
Set will come on, if it goes back off,solder around the switch mode power supply even if it looks good.

I have a colortrak plus rca 32" television that has no power it is not the outlet

I'd suggest testing the power flow of the television with a multimeter. Set it to voltage and check the relay. You can get multimeters that you can plug electronics in to. If you get no voltage change the power supply is dead. If you do get a change, then the tubes may be dead.
