TV makes clicking sound when power cord is plugged in
Our TV all of the sudden just makes a clicking sound, like it is trying to turn on, when you plug it in. It makes the sound over and over again. Tried to unplug for awhile to no avail. Any suggestions?

Here is a place that I buy parts from: It is pretty inexpensive. Note though that with a big screen television, the service people come to your home and then you get charged for a service trip fee. So if you want to save money on this, take the set to them! You should know that those sets have to be transported verticle or the screen will break. http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=LN40B610+
Hello, make sure power cord is pushed in all the way in to the tv. Also make sure you have power at your outlet. I know it sounds dumb, but I've seen people chase their tail for hours before coming to the conclusion that a circuit breaker was tripped. Make sure you have good batteries in the remote. If the TV has a power button on the tv, try turning it on there instead of the remote. You can check to see if there is an on/off switch in the back. Besides this it should be pretty straight forward. You might have a defective tv
Hope this helps
Thank you in advance for your feedback
try unplugging for the power source for 60 seconds hold in the power for 10 seconds then plug the power cord while you are hold int power button in then release the power button... now try it (turn it on)
sounds to me to be a shorted HOT transistor or short somewhere.
the click sound is the switch mode power suppy powering up sensing a short and quickly shuts down. the hot transitor is mounted to a heatsink
near your flyback. check for emitter to collector short. you can try replacing it if shorted and if lucky that all that was ..but if shorts again you looking at probably a bad flyback.
