Rainman, can`t really be of any great help on this one, both techs can be right, the chirp is exactly as you thought, the set is trying to come on but there is a short in the set and it`s shutting down because of the short, could be convergence, low voltage power supply, high voltage power supply, until a tech gets in there and starts un-loading circuits it`s impossible to say where the short is, gonna have to call someone out for this one, good luck with it, BMW Rider

My TV cliks and cliks but never turns on , What should I do?

That clicking sound you hear is your TV's power supply not getting enough current to turn on the screen. Could be as simple as a blown capacitor on the power supply board unit. Many TV repair shops just replace the whole unit, I am almost sure that is your problem with you TV as I've had the same problem with several TV's before. That clicking sound always points to a power supply gone bad.

Picture pulsing, tv turns off and on

Sounds like a power supply problem, If you are competent with electronics, you may find some blown capacitors or resistors on the power supply board. Equally you can probably buy a new power supply board.

WARNING: the power supply board contains lethal voltages even when switched off and unplugged. If you are unsure what you are doing take it to a repair shop.

No Sound, No Picture on Magnavox 51MP392H/17

If you hear a constant clicking or chirping sound get the chirping TV repair kit from

If you have no video - but have audio - its most likey the HVG.

Note: When the video goes out sometimes its hard to tell if you have audio becuase you can't see the screen to change to the correct channel.

No Picture or Sound and chirping from rear

Most likely there are defective capacitors in the power supply. The chirping you are hearing is the attemt to fire up the supply. The cold may have been enough to cause the caps that were on the verge of failing to completely fail. This should be a simple repair for any shop. If you wish to attempt the repair yourself, let me know and I'll try to get you mode details on the likely defective parts.

RCA 32 in TV no picture no sound just a beeping noise TV power is on

Hello cote,

This indicates a problem in the power supply either the low voltage switching supply or the High voltage power supply. The sounds you hear is the shutdown circuit activating, I would not suggest that you try to repair this problem because of the dangers involved. I would suggest that you take it to a qualified TV repair shop. This problem should not cost you much, however it is the best choice for the problem you described.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

TV making chirping sound

If one of the secondary supplies is shorted, the power supply will "chirp" when plugged in. This is the power supply's way of protecting itself and this usually happens when the horizontal output transistor is shorted. If this set was in my shop and needed a new output transistor, a fair price would be right around $100.

PT-43LC14 No Picture, chirping sound when turned on

Most of the time, when there is a chirping comming from a TV set, there is a short somewhere inside the TV set. That chirping noise is the TV's power supply starting up and shutting down because of a heavy load on the power supply. These sets have no user replaceable parts inside them, so play it safe, and call out a pro to assist you in this repair. good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.
