Re: Clicking off and on sound

The power supply is in the protect mode. There is probably a short in one of the areas on the circuit boards. It is also very likely that there is a scan failure. The set would have to be properly troubleshooted to determine that exact failure.

Logik LED TV making a constant tapping/clicking sound.

try turning off AND unplug for a couple minutes! USB may have pulled power down to start the switching noise. Try usb again and if it does it again then I wouldn't use that usb anymore.

Their is no power, but you can only hear a blinking sound.

If by blinking you mean *clicking* (as in multiple times after you press the power button once) then you might have a problem with your power source. More potentially dangerous is an unstable bulb in which case the tv will keep itself from turning on as a fail-safe. (federal regulations for safety)

Hi there!
May be a power supply fault, Line stage, loose solder points or regulation( 5V to the CPU) to trigger switch on. If not familiar with electronics, please refer to a repair technician. Regards, JUS004

Constant clicking every half-second as soon as you plug it in.

I have the same problem-still far still not find the cause. DM1 power supply output voltages are operates correctly. Signal output of microprocessor up and down (no good) that turn on Q14105 and latch optical isolator U14102 to power the unit but both of ohmed out ok. it hard to troubleshoot the main board with power on.

No picture and clicking sound only

This may be a power supply problem or a shorted horizontal output transistor shorted. The clicking sound is the power supply trying to start but can't because of the overload. Stargazer

Advent Flat Screen with TV/AV Button Clicking & Lighting Intermittenly NO PICTURE

The fact that its clicking on and off tells me that theres probably a short in the horizontal sweep/output circuit of the set. You see when the set starts up the power supply detects a large current surge and shuts down. Some sets will try three times if this happens and then stop till the power is pressed again. It sounds like this set dosent have that way of operation. Its going to need a technician to look and troubleshoot the problem Good Luck
