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

There is a short circuit [with one or more component/s] at its main board. Contact any service technician to get it repaired. The troubleshooting to this kind of fault is really a skilled one. Never switch ON the set until the fault has been recertified. It might make things worse. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

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.

The main power supply regulator board has damaged. The fault you see as two blinks are its indication.

When I press the 'power' button, I hear it click, but no picture comes on. I hear it click a couple more times, then it stops.

If it clicks then goes to standby, then the fault is in your power supply circuit. If the sound comes on then the fault is in the line timebase circuit. Aquick way to check the line circuit is to place the back of your hand about 1" from the screen as you switch on, you will feel the hairs on your hand standing to attention.

My sony trinitron won't come on

From your description it sounds like you TV is experiencing a shut down and re-set condition. This is usually caused by some type of voltage irregularity in the power supply section of the TV. Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix and will require a trip to the shop. Get an estimate before approving repair. In the new world of disposable electronics the cost of repair may exceed the value of the set. Keep in mind that TV components are most prone to failure during the electrical surge when you turn the TV on. So constantly pushing the on button will accelerate a permanent failure.

indicator lights blinking "scream help I am shut down" normally due due to a short...and worse possible is the high voltage went bad, 2nd the power supply itself drooped a voltage or shorted.

good luck ..... I wish I was there to check it out with just an ohm meter.

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.

Tv wont turn on

How many times does the light flash, as there is a code that can give an indication as to what circuit is bad.
