My Tv won't turn on...

When I turn the power on, it makes several clicking noises like it wants to turn on, but then I hear a few more than usual and it fails to turn on...Almost like it clicks itself off again. The red power light blinks twice then remains a solid red and repeats the blinks... I've tried unpluging and repluging everything... I doubt the repair will be cost effective...can someone pls advise how to fix this problem? Thanks!

The two blink code "could" mean a problem in the power supply. I believe a 3 blink code means the 3.3 Volt Supply Is bad on the power Board. I would price the new 42" LCD TV's vs repair costs before proceeding.

Tv wont turn on, and its making a clicking noise

That usually indicates that your power supply has gone bad. The clicking sound you hear is your power supply not getting enough current to turn on your screen. Could be a simple fix as a bad capacitor but not sure? If you can pin point that problem being your power supply, it is some times cheaper to just replace the power supply board but it depends how old your TV is and if the power supply unit is available.

How to reset tv

hi Tracie,
is the set making a clicking noise?
is the power light flashing on the front?
or no power light at all just dead?
if the set is just dead, just put your ear to the back vents can you hear like a very faint screaming noise and can you smell and burning in the vent?
if so it just could be capacitors on the power board.
if its clicking the that will need a service kit on the power supply board.
if the power led is flashing then you will need to count how many flashers from start to finish when you first turn set on.
hope this helps.

Model khm9qwh5 won't start

This particular model has some sort of internal electronics that require a charge before the unit will function. As a result, when allowed to sit in the cabinet for a long period of time it will simply not turn on. Instead, all you will hear is a "click" noise when you try to power it on. When you get the dreaded "click" noise leave plugged in for several hours and try again.

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 shopjimmy.com who has by model number a list of all the boards used in almost every Samsung Flat screen set made.

TV won't turn on. I hear a clicking noise near the power supply. I have no picture or sound

This is usually and most likely caused by the power inverter/board. There are capacitors and other components that can burn out and will cause the power not to be transfered correctly

My 40' vivo tv has turned off and won't turn back on but the red stand by light is on??

If the standby light is on and it does not respond, it is most likely to be a problem with the power supply . First try this, unplug and leave the set like that for a few hours. Then plug it back in to see if the tv attempts to turn on when you try to power it up. See if you hear a "click" even if it goes back to standby. Let me know what you found so that I can help you test the power supply board to confirm, if necessary.

Clicking noises before TV turns on.

The clicking noise is coming from the power supply relay. Is makes this sound when the TV is usually turned on or off but has become faulty. It will only get worse over time usually until the TV will no longer turn on anymore. You need to replace the power supply in order to fix the TV.
