Does the TV making a clicking noise when you turn it on?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
not really. when i plug in the cord after an attempted reset you can hear a single click-like sound so i know that it's receiving power but nothing thats recurring.
Expert:  hongkongpom replied 6 years ago.



The two blinks points to a malfunction of the D logic board that is not reading the 15V supply correctly.


You can order a replacement from here if you have TV repair experience and want to DIY


Please double check the board number when you remove it from your TV as they made a couple of boards for the TV depending on the date of manufacturer.


If you are not confident then a technician will be able to do the board replacement for you for an additional charge of $250 - $350
