TV makes "click-click" noise when powered on...

When I power on my TV it makes a "click-click" sound. This clicking fades off after 10-20 seconds. Is this a prelude to something bad?

Yes. Could be a dry joint., a cap that overload etc. If you dont repair TV's try to take it to someone that can check.

Philips TV making a strange clicking noise

A model number would be helpful to answer this but:

This clicking sounds (no pun) like either a mechanical relay in the set's power supply or possible arcing somewhere in the set.

These sets also have a shutdown feature that if engaged may sound like a tic-tic sound.

Let me know model number which is not indicated on this question here.

If you hear a clicking noise that sounds like the ballast trying to power on the lamp, but nothing happens, the lamp may be faulty.
Here you can get your lamp that most likely needs replacing.

I was watching tv and out of nowhere the tv turned off and now will not turn back on for more than a couple seconds. When it does turn on it makes a click noise then turns off, with no sound or picture.

TV will not turn on. It makes a nonstop clicking noise.

Sounds to me like the high voltage power supply is attempting to fire off the metal halide lamp without success.
