Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem , a few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;
I would also require the tv`s model number please ?
Could you please give me the TV's model number so I can pull out the service manual and then I will send you the phone offer .
Right now I`d be working blind
Quite a few models use that lamp and this is definitely not a lamp problem .
That's correct and it is not from me , those are the website charges so if you`d rather continue in this chat it would be fine with me
Actually have a manual for your tv , not too many models uses that lamp and they all have the same chassis anyway
Is the status light blinking at the front ?
O.k then there s no error code .
Is it still clicking ?
Does it keep clicking or stops after a while ?
In any case from what you are telling me you got a defective power board , you got some serious voltages missing in there and what you hear is more than likely the color wheel trying to start .
This affects the whole system , video , audio,control etc.
Sorry but this is not just some reset , someone will have to get in there with meters and if it ever turns out the power supply is not the culprit then the only other possible suspect would be the main board.
Difficult to say for sure as I cannot be there with tools and meters but one thing I can say for sure is that for either fault you are looking at some $300 /$350+ to have this repaired at home.
