My plasma tv clicks and does not come on.

no, the blue power button does not flash, it stays on

Hi Hugh

Their are a few things that can cause this the most suspicious is the elco capacitors on the powerboard these can leak>>have raised domed tops>>balloon up, these need to be checked visually for signs then replaced so an ability to use a soldering iron would be useful another option is to replace the powerboard complete however checks do need to be made first, if you think you can carry out work yourself on the set please let me know.
If you cant you will need a tech who would probably charge around $250 to repair the powerboard.

where is the power board?


Hi Hugh

You find the powerboard by tracing the powercord right to it (rear of set removed)

The photo are similar to what you are looking for you see the way the capacitors leak and show physical signs of stress
