My tv has quit working since a storm in the area. You can plug the tv up and here a relay click, but you cannot power the tv up. I have checked the fuse and the low voltage diodes, but nothing. Please help. The tv is only 3 years old.

try to look for the power supply area, it is found on where the main plug is connected check if there are busted fuse of shorted parts,, the "clicks that you heard are the relays. relays are loosing out of supply because of a shorted parts like transistor or diodes or sometimes loose connection. Parts description are found in alldatasheet.com for you to know how to test the parts that u suspect
The tv power supply board it is dead,u said had an electrical storm in ur area before this problems happen.Yes.Than the tv have a power surge by of the electrical storm already,the storm had a charge sent of an electrical magnatic statics to ur tv and now kills all those sensitive ICS on ur tv power suppply board already.The tv power supply board already dead that the board where the power a/c cord plug into it.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole new refurbish power supply board for the replacement.
you have damage your tv micro chip, regulator ,or horizontal output with static current when you plug out your tv from th plug,what is clicking is the relay trying to power up your tyv but due too the damage it cannot power have a tech repair your tv good luck
This is a typical condition if the power supply has failed or a power-consuming circuit the supply services has exceeded a predetermined current draw. The relay you hear is preventing further damage or even fire. You will need local tech help with this.
Yes, it's quite possible that you indeed may have sufferd from a Power Spike, induced by lightning during the storm, esspecially if plugged in during said storm. I have had quite a few customers ova the years with this exact problem. I always advise my clients to unplug ALL devices during a storm, and for ones that simply cannot be unplugged then some sort of Spike/Surge Protection device MUST be used. As a matter of interest, I have written many a report to insurance companies to support a claim for a replacement.
There are fuses in this unit, one could be blown there are also capacitors and a regulator that could be at fault I would suggest U find a repair man in your area if possible to go thru this unit find the fault and repair. It would cost less than to repair than buying a new one.
