Question about Zenith C30W46 30" TV
My TV was turn on. I left the room for about 30 minutes and found my screen was blank with a clicking noise. The remote not the power button on the TV will make the TV come back on. There is just a constant clicking noise and the power light that is red is contanting clicking on and off. I should add that this TV is connected to DirectTV. I have try plugging the power into a another outlet and it doesn't help. Do I need a repair man to look it. I had to unplug the TV to get the clicking noise to stop.
If The other tech really knew about Zenith TV sets, he would know about the problem at hand. Your problem sir, is a bad capacitor in the main standby power supply or a short in one of in one of the many circuits of this TV. This could also be a bad horizontal output transistor. This is what would causes this set to turn off and on in a rapid sequence a lot of times. If you have no solid state repair knowledge, play it safe! Call in an authorized repair center to assist you in this repair. Good Luck.

Hi, If the clicking noise is metallic, could be a relay switching on/off. What's curious is that once powered on by remote, apparently the clicking doesn't affect the TV, meaning it continuously work. The relay is suppose to turn on or off a function of the TV and apparently it is trying to but there is not such effect since the TV, as I understand from your post, works. The relay can be for the degaussing coil, power supply, over voltage protection. Since this involve a little diagnosis of the electronics, soldering and probably a minor component replacement, an on-site service/repair man would be your best bet. Even if it were a nuisance/minor repair, you can at least get the clicking noise out. Other than you get to get a checkup of the TV and diagnosis of what caused/started the clicking sound in the first place. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
