My Sanyo HT28745 28" HDTV clicks but doesn't turn on

When the power button on the front of the unit gets pressed, it makes a couple clicking noises but won't turn on. No sound comes out and nothing appears on the screen. Any advice on how this problem can be fixed as well as cost?

    My Sanyo HT28745 clicks but does not turn on. After 3 trys will not click. Can unplug momentarily does not help. Can unplug and leave a couple of days and it will turn on. After turned off and the next time turned on the same "Click" problem ocurs. Also there is a background noise that sounds like wind blowing across a mike. Also sometimes the TV will change channels and back on it`s on without any controls being used.

    I have the same problem. I took it to a repair shop, and was told it's the power supply (flyback transformer). Unfortunately, no one supplies parts for these TVs sold at WalMart, and numerous calls to Sanyo and many messages left have not been returned. It looks like it's going to be a very expensive, disposable TV....

    We are having the same problem. Sometimes we can turn the tv on and just leave it alone and it will come on about 5 minutes later. We've had it 1 year and 3 months. Very disappointing! I will be calling Sanyo for answers.

    I have the same problem, has anyone found the piece that is needed for this my tv has been out of service for over a year now due to this and i paid too much to just throw it in the trash. so my tv just sits there collecting dust

    Same here...

    Also noticed that, when looking at the set, if you hit the top of the upper left hand corner, it makes noise through the speaker, and a hard enough hit can cause the TV to go from functional to clicking and not functioning.

    Occasionally, tilting the TV where the left side is down and the right side is up has been known to get the set to turn on (temporarily)...

I have had a similar problem with my tv, it has something to do with the power supply.Try unplugging your tv from the AC outlet. While unplugged from the power supply hold down the - volume control and then plug the tv back in while holding down the - volume control. It should bring up the service screen. If the screen turns on and is blank then it may need to be brought in for repairs.

If the screen does turn on, either blank or with the service menu, turn off the tv and unplug it from the power supply again. With it still unplugged hold down the power button on the tv and then replug in the tv. continue to hold down the power button until the tv displays a video signal on screen.

Visio VP504 fhdtv10a - When I plug it in, it has an amber logo light and makes a click noise (like a relay). When I press the power button nothing happens.

These are problems gradually developed in TV over the years. You may have to look for any dry solder, change the capacitors that look 'puffy' and try.

I need a code to program a remote for a sanyo tv

all you need to do is press the code search button until the red light is on then press tv button...then point the remote at the tv and continue to press the power button until your tv turns on/off...then press enter. Be may take any wear from 2 or three clicks up to 100 clicks....but it will eventually operate your careful though...if you press the power button even 1 more time after it turns your tv on or will have to start all over....Good luck! and if this doesnt can always buy a universal remote from any department store..some are as cheep as 5.00. and they all come with program guides.

The screen won't turn on.

High Voltage transformer and related circuitry has fatigued or gone bad. Not an expensive repair..TV it salvagable. HV transistor or the transistor or both.. Baybe a couple of capacitors. Needs servicing. Should troubleshoot before ordering parts.

TV Turned off, now there is a clicking noise when plugged in.

had a 51" GE rear projection donated to myself. While off and power button pressed there was a clicking noise from the front of the unit. Rear cover was removed and it could be observed that the hv splitter had a crack in the casing and the power was arcing out of the splitter. I purchased a $72 dollar hv splitter, i read that the $20-$30 dollar one would break within a year, and the unit powered up no problems.
