If its just clicking its likely that one of the scan boards has gone short-circuit now the options are

Repair the set yourself (you will need to have and be able to use a volt\ohm\amp meter) this will mean making checks and deciding what board is faulty, in general a replacement boar costs around $100

Call in a tech costs over $200 and nearer $300 as a general guide will locate a tech in your area

Or replace the set these sets now are aging and in many cases its not economic to pursue repairs

Let me know which way you want to go with this please, I am sorry its nothing easier
