    I've got the same problem. I took off the back and cleaned it with a can of compressed air, but nothing worked. I also took out two (they look like spark plug things) from a black cylinder and noticed one of the metal tips was much shorter than the other - not sure if this is the problem or not. Did you ever get your tv fixed? How much was it/what was it.

Probably the power supply and could also be the L-main board

My tv don't come on it stays on stand buy and making tick tick noise it a lg 50inc

The tick noise is either a relay clicking on/off or the shutdown circuit signaling shutdown.

In either case set needs to be opened and voltages etc tested to decide if a board is needed and which one--nature of tv repair today.

My samsung tv is making clicking noises and won't turn on

Clicking noises may mean a power supply voltage is not staying correct or that board is bad---a suggestion: visit who has by model number a list of all the boards used in almost every Samsung Flat screen set made.

My Samsung LN52A550 LCD TV will not stay on.

The ticking noise usually comes from the power section of the tv. Usually it is a capacitor failing. As far as the cost of repair this can go either way ie cheap or expensive. It will dpend on what exactly has failed and if it requires a board replacement or just a part.

I'm going to assume this isn't under warrenty anymore. It is covered if it is. You need to get some repair estimates from Samsung and any tv repair shops. Then keep and eye out for a replacement. Make sure you include any shipping costs or other costs when you are totaling up the estimates. If it gets close to the replacement cost then you will have to choose if you want a new tv or have a repair done.

Is there anyway of stopping the noise my Samsung LCD tv makes when it is turned on. If mute is on before turning off then there is no noise. so wondering if it is possible to stp the noise when turning on?

You can change the setting on your Samsung Television by selecting “Menu” then “Settings” and arrow down to “Melody”. There are four options; Off, Low, Medium, High.

I hope that this helps you with your television issues and as always, Thank you for using FixYa.

May you enjoy your television for years to come.

I have a 15'' Magnaox flat screen TV that is about 5 years old. It was unplugged for about a month while I was away on trip. When I returned, the picture is fine but there is no sound. It's not on mute and...

If the speakers make no noise at all they could have failed if you hear a slight buzzing noise then there speakers will still be fine. contact magnaox they will help you better than anyone here :D

Tv turns it self off after only 2-3 seconds and makes crack noise

Since the set is less than 1 year old, it should still be under warranty. Request warranty service.

The noise you are hearing is probably arcing inside the set on the power supply board. Continuing to attempt to turn on the set will only make things worse. Please request warranty service as this is unusual for a TV that new.
