I was watching my tv and it turned off and started making clicking sounds. I powered off, then back on, and just 5 or six clicking sounds. Tried differnt outlets with same thing. Could this be just a fuse or another simple fix?

Re: RCA 36695BC wont turn on
I'm afraid this failure is not just a fuse failure in your TV since you still can hear the relay clicking. This fix might not be a DIY.
Where can I send you additional info on what could be wrong with your TV?

it sounds to me a transformer in your set has gone hard to say witch. im guessing it is a CRT set the best thing i could suggest would be to take it to your local tv repair shop they should be able to sort this for you and it shouldn't be to expensive.
If the tv has nothing happening at all when you try and turn it back on including any noise, your power supply is broken. If it is still trying to turn on or does make noise, an internal component has come loose or been knocked off, most likely to your picture tube.
The green light indicates that it is getting power from the outlet ok.
The clicking is the power relay trying to turn it on but there is an
internal fault forcing it to shutdown. You either have a power supply
problem, horizontal output transistor (HOT) is shorted or a bad flyback
transformer. In any case it can most likely be repaired by a qualified
technitian. If it is the flyback it may be expensive.
There could be a problem in the main power supply or perhaps the standby power supply. To me at a guess i would say there is most likely a bad capacitor in the standby power supply or there is a problem in the switch mode power supply. if you have no electronic troubleshooting skills, play it safe and take the set into a repair shop or replace it. Now a days, a 32" TV set can be had for under 200bucks. Good Luck
