Just quit working

The TV was on and just quit working. It started clicking from inside and will not turn on. Now when I try to turn it on, it just clicks 3 times and stops. Is it worth trying to repair?

Re: Just quit working

The Flyback transformer has shorted out. A replacement is about $85 plus labor to install it.

Tv turns on then makes clicking sound

The sound may be high voltage arcking inside the TV, High voltage is necessary for the TV to work. It may be damp or dusty inside causing it to arc. If you see white spots on the picture when it clicks then it is arcking.

When the set is turned on there is a clicking sound then it dies

I am assuming this is an old CRT TV.

In CRT TV's the tube needs quite a high voltage around 30,000 volts. This is generated in the set. When you turn the TV on it is possible you hear the high voltage arcking. This happens if there is dust and dampness. You may see specs of light on the screen when this happens. You could try cleaning the inside.

Clicking from inside the TV. sounds like its going to explode.

That is one or more of the capacitors shorting and discharging. Turn the TV off and take it in to be repaired. If you let it continue to do this it will eventually destory the television.

Samsung txe2745 just quit working -- has an internal "clicking" like a relay trying to close

First of all greetings from Belize mike your set is an old set but you can still get some life out of it please be inform that going into a tv could cause you self injury if you are not qualified to handle an electronics set.the problem with your set is in the power supply there is a 10mf cap situated in the power supply just close a transistor replace it along with power requlator and associated diodes.that will solve your problem.but make checks in the power supply.if you cannot do it yourself take the set to tech.good luck.
