Question about Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-36FS120 36" TV
You are correct, the switch would still click even if something major had failed inside the TV. There is a small microswitch inside the TV directly behind the on/off button. The microswitch can break or get stuck and there is usually no way of fixing it without taking the back off the TV. You could try repeatedly pressing the on/off switch rapidly as this can (very) occasionally unstick it, but it's probably broken.
This isn't generally a user replaceable part as the actual switch is soldered to the PCB. I would take it to a TV repair shop, but if you are planning to remove the back of the TV, make sure it's unplugged and don't open it until the power has been off for at least half an hour as you can still get a considerable residual current shock!
Hope this helps.
