My TV was working fine. I turned it off. Several hours later I tried to turn it on via the remote. When it didn't work I pressed the power button, but just heard a click, click, click sound. The TV wouldn't come on. I changed where I had it plugged in, tried again, tripped the power cord, tried again, all I get is click, click, click.
I really don't want to have to buy a new TV even though my loyal TV has served me for 12 years.

my tv, when turned on via remote or manually pressing the power button on tv does not turn on. The TV power light powers on red but makes a clicking sound as if if were turning itself off after power up. (clicks on then clicks off) Humm? What could the problem be? Is there a repair part that is needed? If so. what might that be and is there a schematic or some sort of diagram to show how this issue can be resolved?
You have bad switches inside the tv. When a switch gets stuck nothing else will work including the remote. In other words, the microprocessor can take only one command at a time. Replace all the switches at one time to avoid trouble later.
I had the same problem and took it apart. Before the repair there was no "click" when I pushed the button, a clue to the problem. The on-off button on the front pushes a weakly made angle piece of plastic inside which had broken. The plastic piece in turn is supposed to push an internal switch which is offset to one side.
I used epoxy (Araldite) to repair the broken plastic angle piece, but it still looks weak to me so I switch the tv off at the wall and leave the on-off button alone (though it does work now).
Opening the case requires some knowledge and care, and can be dangerous. It may void the warranty so be careful or give it to a qualified repair person.
First of all, forget about the remote and see if the TV functions normally using the buttons on the front of the set itself. If the TV will not power on with the power button on the set itself, then something is wrong inside the TV. If the set works fine from the front buttons but no longer responds to that remote, then the remote has either gone bad or was accidently set to a different brand. In this case, look for the original book that came with the remote (or TV if it is the original remote) and follow the instructions for setting the remote back to Zenith. Try that and post your results here.
