TV making clicking sounds

Hello. I have a 36 in Sanyo tv. A few mths ago it started making a clicking sound coming from the back of the tv. Then recently sparks started in back of tv. Now tv has a blank screen. I was wondering what it could be and wether it would be worth fixing or not.

    I hate to sound like an idiot but what does the fuses look like? I removed the back cover so I can see inside.

    Oh I forgot to mention that when i firs turn on the tv the clicking would start out fast then gradually slowed down and clickng disappeared after 20min or so when tv was on. A few times there were blueish sparks in back of tv while tv on. Now i get no picture at all. By the way, the tv is about 6 years old.

All the reports are showing the same problem the TV is in shutdown mode.

Something is wrong and it is refusing to start it makes a chirping or clicking sound. Solution is that it needs to be repaired nothing you can do unless you want to try replacing the motherboard yourself.

Snap, crackle sound from Sanyo TV

It sounds to me as if possibly ya Main IC Amp Chip & OR the Output Capacitors are failing... Sometimes it is a sign of a power supply on it's way out... Either way it's time for a repair shop quote. Either that or it may be the speakers crossovers... to check this, if you can, try another set of speaker... see if problem is still there. If it IS, then it IS most probably as I said above.. If NOT then it may be one or both of the "Crossover Network" in each speaker...

This set is very popular for the capacitors to dry upa and go bad in the main SMPS as well as the switching power supply. If you have no know how on how to test capacitors or solid state electronics please take the set into a repair shop for an estimate
