3 Answers

42dpc85 My tv recently started making a clicking or pecking noise. Its coming from the back of the tv and looking at the back, its near the top of the unit and slightly right of center. Any idea as to what this noise is and what can be done to make it stop? It does not appear to have affected anything else, still have picture and sound.

You have to repair this ASAP, otherwise the next step is going to be black spots here and there and then a black screen with sound. It happened to us and the TV guy said it was only an annoying noise and nothing else. When the TV started getting black spots everywhere we checked with another TV guy and he said that bcs we didn't repair the clicking sound in time, the consecuence was the black spots we are getting now. Of course Toshiba won't do anything so they lost our business too.

You have a cap on the powersupply going bad. it can be replaced but you will have to take the back of the unit apart to find out witch one it is. look for one that is swelling at the top.

The noise (without hearing it) is hard to answer but it could be a sticking Lifter, Low Engine Oil, Broken Internal Component, Spun Bearing, Transmission, and the list goes on and on.

Yes It could be the timing belt because as your car ages and the belt gets worn it starts to stretch. If your timing belt stretches enough your car will come out of time and that will cause a peck or knock. Another thing that you may look into if you have not had a tune up recently is spark plugs and wires. If you have worn plugs or wires it can also cause this to happen on occasion. I hope this helps you out.

When I attempt to start my 89 jeep cherokee, it only makes a clicking noise, near the starter relay. Then occasionally it will try to turn over, but makes a grinding noise near the starter.


try to jump start it if it starts its the battery,if it doesnt than it time to remove the starter and go have it tested,while its out look for any worn teeth on the flywheel and starter solenoid teeth also.if starter comes back ok then look at all the cables,look for corrosion as it can hide under the wire sheilding.

My tv turns off by itself and makes a clicking noise


Most likely it has some bad capacitors in the power supply. Flat--panel sets are VERY hard on capacitors, due to the fact that the "rising heat' from the set "cooks" the caps and they fail VERY early.

Intermittent clicking noise from my inop antenna


to stop the noise from returning, simply disconnect the electrical connector near the antenna motor (follow the wires out of the unit). this unit may be disassembled and thoroughly cleaned (especially the copper electrical contacts) to restore it to near new condition sometime in the future....about 3 to 4 hours for a novice.the clicking is due to the motor "coming alive" when an electric signal can get through the oxidized contacts. prolonged "clicking" may not harm the unit...there is some chance the antenna's nylon gear track has separated...try to pull up on the antenna itself after disconnecting car battery. if it cannot be pulled up, then chances are good for earlier described restoration. if motor housing looks VERY corroded, a full replacement of unit is best sol'n.

Is the ticking sound coming from the right side near the bottom? Or the left side near the top. If it is the right bottom then you're looking at a service station. If it is the left top then a scanner unit. Scanner unit is not available from Hp. You can try dismantling and cleaning all mirrors and lenses (usually doesn't work). If it is the service station, you are probably going need parts that are not availble.
