Philips 42PFP5332D 42 in random clicking problem

When the tv is off it occasionally makes a clicking sound like it wants to turn on or off. i noticed when it does this you can see a light turn on then off inside the back of the tv. Is this normal?

EVERY TIME I HAVE SEEN THIS PROBLEM IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE SMPS...SWITCHMODE POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT BOARD...THATS WERE THE NOISE IS COMING FROM...RELAYS ON THAT BOARD ARE BEING ENERGIZED WHEN THEY ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO...THE UNIT SHOULD REMAIN IN STANDBY MODE UNTIL AN ON COMMAND IS RECEIVED VIA THE REMOTE CONTROL OR SET POWER ON BUTTON...TRY REPLACING THE SMPS..JOEACE

My philips 42PFP5332D/37 keeps making a clicking sound, it wont turn on, and like most other post i have read, the blue power light stays on, but nothing more..it just keeps clicking, its been doing this...


I had the same problem and it was the power supply board,but I replaced it myself and only spent about $140.00 for the part and 2 day shipping . It was easy just pull the back cover off and there are about 8 small screws that hold it on and like 6 connectors that's it. Also ShopJimmy.com was the place for parts on these T.V.'s.
