Just replace the board to fix your TV and it works again..

Note: When you install the board make it sure that the static energy on your body discharge to ground to avoid corrupt of main board IC..

EXAMPLE: open the cover then find the main board..before you do that make it sure you hold the metal portion of your TV to discharge static after that you can now freely replace the board and also make it sure to memorized the connector to avoid damage to make it sure take a picture on it before unplug connector for future reference in case..

again discharge static please!!!..Only few tech or other people know this that's why when they install new boards its not works even it is new..I discover this base on my experience and study..

Hope it helps..

Please don't forget to rate!!!!

Thank you using fixya..

If there is no auto dimmer on the TV, than the TV needs professional repair work.

Open it up and locate the source of the clicking. Chances are that is the defective board in your set.

Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
