Samsung HDTV LN46A650A, Black screen and clicking noise

by bluengold50 / January 9, 2010 10:19 PM PST

I turned the TV on and got a black screen? Checked all connections nothing changed since i used earlier in the day. Have clicking noise that doesn't stop when TV plugged in. When I unplug clicking noise continues for 10 seconds then shuts off. Has anyone ever had this problem? Have owned TV 1 1/2 years. Have tried remote and tried power button manually. Nothing seems to work.
Thank you

Well I thought I should write to let all know the outcome. As it turns out the problem was on the secondary board. Apparently there are two power supplies? I was in this case fortunate that i did not damage the "Main Board" power supply. The technician that came to our house thought if I had left TV plugged in and let the clicking from the power button I could have damaged the main board which would have cost a lot more. As it turned out this episode cost $256.00 for a 1 1/2 old set.
