SOURCE: the lamp indicator turns on
The clicking noise is the protection switch that keep shutting down the unit. This happens when an internal fault had been detected.
Do the following:
Unplug the unit from power for some time.
Remove the bulp and refit it in place.
Restart the unit.
If still in protect mode (clicking , lamp light and no start), then there is a fault.
When the problem is the lamp, the lamp light will come on, but usually protection does not click.
Before buying a new lamp that is expensive, have the projector checked, testing with particular attention the high voltage board that will supply power to the lamp. That may be the fault.
If you have a replacement lamp in storage replace the lamp first.

This could be almost any fault but .... usually points to memory OR a bad power supply.
First thing I would check is the power supply. After that, if there is more than 1 stick of memory, try removing all but one. You may have to swap that one remaining one a couple of times (depending on how many sticks there are) as there is a 1 in x chance the one you leave in is the defective one.
Let me know how you make out.
