TV will not turn on.

Sounds like there is a short in the tv somewhere, the clicking is probably a breaker/fuse inside the tv cutting power to prevent damage to the components. Have you tried a different outlet as they can sometimes cause this to occur by surging power to the unit.

the problem is most likely the convergance chips. if that is the case you can go to and purchase a repair kit for the fix. don't go to a TV shop because they will charge you about 3 - 6 times as much as the kit costs and he will most likely not even fix the problem, make it worse, or it might work for a week or so than go back to what it was like before

Mitsubishi vs 5043

I turned the set on and everything was fine, then the screen went black and mullti-colored horizontal (arched) lines were flashing across the screen. The next day I turned the set on and everything was fine for about 5 minutes then the problem reoccures again. Haven't looked for solutions till now.
