Tv wont turn on

My projection tv was working fine one day, then next day I go to turn it on, and it clicks like its going to come on, the little red light in front of tv, will sometimes come on for about 1/4 of a sec, then nothing..... I am guessing its has something to do with the power supply board, but not positive. Its an old tv, like 11 years old, but I would still like to try and fix it if at all possible.  does anyone have any ideas what I can check to see if it is the pwer supply?  I have a digital multimeter, and have some some sodering before, but its been awhile.. thanks. any help appreciated.

Why does my DLP 60 inch Mitsubishi TV keep turning off and flashing a red light?

Your repair tech hinted correct. Although the bad connection will likely be in the power supply, it actualy can sit everywhere the power goes. Can be anordinary plug / connector with a little oxidatin, or a dab soldering point. Or perhaps a electrolitic cap, slowely dying.
Let the tech do his job. He has the tools, education and skills to keep your beloved TV alive.

Toshiba TP50H95 TV Won't turn on - Pete

You will need to trouble shoot the start up and shutdown circuits. Often this is a minor component failing causing the set to not power up or go into protective shutdown. Do you have the service manual for this TV?

Powers on but just clicks

This is an old post, but sounds like the ray tubes are out of whack and need to be adjusted. Mark each RGB dial and turn each one little by little until you get it to come one and fine tune it after it's going. This is described in more detail here:
