I get a clicking noise every 30 secs or so on the above setting when running the tv sound through the system and also off dvds. Its really annoying as this is by far the best sound setting especially for music. I have a Philips plasma bought at the same time and a HDMI cable linking them. I have tried the speakers in every possible position so its definitely not interference due to the speakers being too close to the TV. Please has any one any ideas or is it just a fault ?

Re: Clicking noise on Multitech/Dolby setting
Did you experience this from the start (since the first time you used it) or did it started just recently? Check that the HDMI cable is connected properly at both ends and it's not near/touching any other cable or power supply. After checking this and if it is still there then it could be a fault with the cable. If you have another cable to try, that would be great.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If the clicking noise is metallic, could be a relay switching on/off.
What's curious is that once powered on by remote, apparently the clicking doesn't affect the TV, meaning it continuously work. The relay is suppose to turn on or off a function of the TV and apparently it is trying to but there is not such effect since the TV, as I understand from your post, works.
The relay can be for the degaussing coil, power supply, over voltage protection.
Since this involve a little diagnosis of the electronics, soldering and probably a minor component replacement, an on-site service/repair man would be your best bet. Even if it were a nuisance/minor repair, you can at least get the clicking noise out. Other than you get to get a checkup of the TV and diagnosis of what caused/started the clicking sound in the first place.
Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
No,the tv message said replace lamp wright?Yes,mean the tv projection lamp is the causes and the problems.The tv projection lamp life span have ended that why the tv it is not holding a stable tv projection lamp picture.All throught these causes,does the tv make alot of clicking noises too,when the tv projection lamp is it on for 30 sec.and shut it self off?Yes,than the board that call the Ballast board it is also dead too.This Ballast board only job are to ignite the tv projection lamp only.Tries websites like Partstore.com,Ebay.com to buy a new tv projection lamp and a new Ballast board too for the replament too,if this tv causes have alot of clicking noises,when the tv is trying to ignite the tv projection lamp.
I had this exact problem when I first got my Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround
Sound. Disregard what others have said, though it would make sense to
check all formats, that is not the case here. De-select all formats
except Dolby digital 5.1. There should also be 2 formats that you cant make unchecked, but don't worry about those. Now go into your game, if you
begin to hear a loud static/clicking noise, cycle between optical and
another setting on your receiver until the sound from the game is clear.
For some reason, the PS3 cannot decode sound through optics correctly.
You either have a cold solder joint in your horizontal deflection circuits or your or in your horizontal output circuit. please be careful due to the fly-back transformer still holds power even unplugged until you discharge it.( ground it out). Hope this helps.
I have the same reciever, and had the same problem. Contact Onkyo, this is a known issue where defective DSP chips were used and manifest problems with a popping / clicking sound when using surround settings. These receivers also have a Dolby Digital input issue that can cause audio dropouts when watching cable or SAT broadcasts that encode DD using a 'newer' broadcast encoding methods. Onkyo is covering the cost of that repair for me now, even though the receiver is 5 years old now....
What you are hearing is digital noise that can have many sources. One thing that would help to narrow this down is to try and see a pattern of when the clicking occurs. Is is all the time, or just after the unit has been on for a while? Does the clicking vary with the type of sound? Soft/loud/vocal/music etc?
I was told that these clicking noises (which happen on my Magnavox LCD too) were due to the "power required" at the internal switch. Seems that the power required to immediately turn on the TV is too much for a standalone household outlet, so it "surges" power in a series to get enough there. Hence, the clicking sounds are actually mini power surges to send more power to the internal circuits to turn the TV on.
If your set is like mine, these noises generally stop after a minute or two, correct?
