Turns on but doesn't do anything else. Screen doesn't come on. Can hear a clicking sounds like a turn signal sound.

looks like a( DLP) tv digital light proccessor . aka projection. most likely the bulb is burned out . if so cost is $65-125 bucks. aftermarket bulbs are available online but some dont work or burn out prematurely. if you decide to fix it or buy a new tv ,invest in a surge protector. it will save your tv from problems like this . good luck.

Tv shuts off tv/video doesnt work

that is a indication that a fault is about to occur, dont force that tv take it to a technician before it switches off completely, a power supply is supposed to be checked.

TV turned off by itself and now it won't turn back on

If the tv has nothing happening at all when you try and turn it back on including any noise, your power supply is broken. If it is still trying to turn on or does make noise, an internal component has come loose or been knocked off, most likely to your picture tube.

Panasonic TV

The power surge has caused a failure of an internal component. If it is making this noise it is possible the line output transistor has failed. I would advise calling a service repair centre & have someone there take alook at it. All being well this may be the only problem. Power surges can sometimes cause other faults.

TV turns off by itself, juggling power cord causes TV to come back on

It could seem to be a power cord problem But when you move around the cord you are realisticly flexing the printed circuit board assy. If you know all the safety issues around the servicing a solid state tv, then Of course I will assit you, in any way I can, But you must be aware of the high voltage that these sets store , even if they Are unplugged. Its a total safety issue. If you have no experience using a multi- meter as well as the safety issue awarness, then PLEASE seek a pro to assist you with this reapir, as it will get worse in the long run and cost ya more to fix, as everytime you move around the cord and the set shuts off, then goes on , your surging the componets!. Good Luck
