It has probably shorted out. I would purchase a new one on eBay, such as this. Another option is to send this in for warranty repair.
You can check to see if it has shorted out by opening up the case, and using a multimeter to test the voltage levels and current levels at different parts of the circuit.

Wii has solid red light, won't turn on, faint ticking noise


if it was dropped check the bluetooth module , they can come unplugged and the wii will not function. Children love to put change in the wii which can short it out. Never bridge a fuse as it can cause unsafe conditions and potentially a fire hazard .

Dryer will not start


If you manually turn on timer can you hear the faint ticking? #1Verify breaker is not tripped. #2 Unplug dryer. Remove back cover. On many makes there are 2 blue wires that connect to a white and black "fuse" towards the bottom of the unit. Unplug both wires and electical tape them together. plug in dryer and start the cycle. If it works, unplug and go buy the fuse. Clean lint out of air system from dryer to lint screen through exhaust.

32" LCD HDTV Sceptre model x32, blue led but no pic or sound !


Having the same problem. Took it to a repair shop and they say it is some capacitors and the power supply... Which seems kinda hinky to me... I would think one or the other would be the problem, not both at the same time.

Will not come on


RCA DRC8320N DVD Recorder/VCR

Symptoms:

Seems to have no power, no lights on front lit, if listened to closely one may hear a "click click click" sound.

Solution: Replace C232 on power supply board.

Additional technical info:

In this design, the switching power supply feedback is from the 5 volt standby rail only, which is odd. The problem is caused when C232, the first filter capacitor in this rail and the sampling point for the feedback circuit, opens. The clicking sound is transformer rattle as the power supply restarts repeatedly.

My external is making a faint tick, tick, tick


I am sorry to inform you that your drive is failing. Normally drives will start with a faint ticking then move onto a solid clicking sound and maybe even a grinding noise. You will need to backup all of the data on that drive and then download the diagnostic utilities from your drive's manufacture and run the testing tool. If you can hear any ticking there is a very good chance the drive will fail the diagnostic tests. Assuming it fails you will then be able to RMA your drive for a working one as long as it is still under the warranty period. If your drive passes all the testing from the manufacture's tool I would advise you backup your data from that drive regularly and run the diagnostics weekly until it throws and error code.

No power no lights good fuse...


Try a different power outlet? Possible shut down of DC supply due to short circuit can be heard if listen close at back of TV on plug in or power up with remote for a quick squeel then ticking sound or tick tick tick and nothing.

No Picture No Sound


I think you have a short somewhere inyour set most likely the horizontal output transistor which may have shorted by the high voltage transformer going bad. The faint ticking sound that you hear is the power supply trying to start but the shorted load won't let it. Stargazer
