Hello and Welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'll assist you today. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it. I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.

- Any idea how old is the TV and how long it have had the problem?

- Does TV turn On after some time or just keeps clicking?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Tv is about 4 years old. It turns on after 5 to 7 minutes. Problem just started a few days ago.

Thanks for the info, since TV turns On after 5-7 minutes that indicates failing capacitors problem on power supply board of TV and replacement of bad capacitors of power board (it needs good soldering work with proper tools and expertise) OR entire power board replacement in will resolve the problem. Please get the part number written on label pasted on power supply board in TV to search/ google to get price info to order the replacement power board if you are looking to do-it-yourself.
