Question about Televison & Video
This may not be an adequate answer, but if it's old as you say, a few thoughts: It might be a Vacuum Tube type. The some of the tubes may have failed. A tube tester would reveal. Some of the capacitors may have failed. They depreciate with heat and age, A schematic (hard to find, but not impossible) and circuit knowledge would be necessary. Similarly resistors may have overheated and burned or shorted with the other failures (called co-lateral or consequential damages) The clicking you refer to, likely was the building up of static charge around the viewing tube. If any of the above failures occurred, it's likely that static voltage charge could not happen, therefore not the sounds you are familiar with. A TV repairman, can be found, not in the phone book or internet, because we've moved the universe into a "dispose-of old , and cheaper to buy new" environment. If the TV is valuable to you, sentimental value, what-ever, People may still do repairs, but you're going to have to ask around a lot.. maybe ask seniors at a church or two or three if they know of anyone who still does or knows how or know someone who does know. Well, there you have it. Best regards --- GooseBay_Camper
P.S. some churches have old Vacuum-tubed Hammond Electronic organs, the technician they use to service this equipment, may have usefull skills, or Musicians that use vacuum-tubed electronic amplifiers, or music stores that sell amplifiers may know of a technician they use that may have similar skills for Vacuum-tubes and old equipment. Again Good Luck. GB_C

Please make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall, bypass any power strips. Make sure the remote has fresh batteries inside, press and release the SAT button and then press the select button. If the remote is not working, go to the receiver and try the select button and try to channel up and down. If you have any further DISH questions please e-mail me: email@example.com
