Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Open Question

Samsung TV- LE46B530 makes a strange rapid clicking noise sounds similar to a xylophone every 15-20 minutes. It doesn't over ride ongoing dialogue but is annoying.

How do I make it stop, and is it a symptom of a larger impending issue?

SOURCE: clicking and power cycling

Possibly it is overheating and saftey mode is starting automatically (Phillips/Panasonic)which will turn the overheated components off and leaving the fans on trying to cool the device whilst resetting the overload switch mechanisim (hence the clicking) Or possibly the power supply may be on its way out (this will happen between 3-7 Yrs dependant on use)and it is constantly trying to switch on the power supply until the power supply activates correctly. I would take this device to a quality repairer and request a bench test with a written diagnosis or report under the guise of wanting too know the condition of the device as u have just purchased it. If/when under bench test conditions the fault replicates itself your repairer will advise you of the problem parts and repair costs within the write up for the bench test or verbally at the time of pickup.

SOURCE: LG 47" LCD TV - 47LC7DF Clicking Noise

I was told that these clicking noises (which happen on my Magnavox LCD too) were due to the "power required" at the internal switch. Seems that the power required to immediately turn on the TV is too much for a standalone household outlet, so it "surges" power in a series to get enough there. Hence, the clicking sounds are actually mini power surges to send more power to the internal circuits to turn the TV on.

If your set is like mine, these noises generally stop after a minute or two, correct?

SOURCE: tv making clicking noise while I am watching

Hello everyone,

I bought the model TH-50PX60U June of 2007. I've been hearing the very annoying clicking noise as well.

Since the TV has a one year warranty, I just called Panasonic and they've scheduled a tech to come over and take a look at it three days from now.

I will publish the results on the same page.

Can a bad starter relay burn out a starter

st people are familiar with fuses - they allow your car's electronics to work while protecting them from over-voltage situations. Relays are similar, but much larger and more powerful. There's a relay for most of the major components on your car, including the fuel pump, the air conditioner compressor and the starter.
Your starter relay is engaged every time you turn the ignition to run. Voltage is sent through the relay and if it has failed, it stops there. With a dead relay, the starter won't work and your engine won't crank. The relay is subjected to very high voltage when you turn the ignition, and this will eventually cause the contact circuit to burn out. It's also possible for the relay's energizing circuit to fail.
n terms of lifespan, your starter relay should last a very long time. Many drivers never have to replace theirs, but this isn't true across the board. Relays can and do fail at any point, including when the car is new. With that being said, starter motor failure is actually more common than a failed relay, and other problems can present similar symptoms, including a dead or dying car battery. f the starter relay fails, it's the same as if your starter motor fails in terms of what you can expect - you'll be stuck where you are until the relay can be replaced. However, there are signs and symptoms that can warn you of an impending failure and knowing these might save you some serious hassle. They include:
  • Starter will not engage at all
  • Starter stays engaged (creating a grinding noise)
  • Starter only works intermittently (usually when the engine is cold

Whirring on the gas tank on a 1986 Nissan pickup

Probably has an electric fuel pump, installed directly into the gas tank. If so, this is first symptom of impending failure. Have it checked before you get stuck somewhere.

What kind of fuse do I need for my 1994 Fleetwood Cadillac blinkers? They all of a sudden stopped working.

replace the fuse for one exactly like the one you take out. If it continues to blow fuses then you have a short in the system and need to diagnose the wiring problem. fuses are circuit protection devices and it is important that you do not substitute for larger Amp fuse to circumvent the real issue and cause larger more expensive issues.

HP Pavillion tx2-135dx laptop overheats

hi.Fan Always Runs Or Laptop Overheats And Shuts Itself Off
Warning! Before Disassembling Laptop always unplug power and remove the battery.
Laptops that shut down without warning are often experiencing overheating issues. Overheating may be a symptom of age, of clogged ventilation or impending failure, but it can also result from simply using the laptop in a bad location. Before you try to take the laptop apart to look for problems, it pays to patiently troubleshoot the symptoms and see if an easy fix is possible. I wrote The Laptop Repair Workbook to teach basic laptop technology and troubleshooting to regular people and techs in training.

2004 liberty 4 WD. Bigger tires state 50 pressure. Alarms go off stating high pressure in all tires. Now engine light on and error code P0501. Dont know what to do

You have tire pressure monitors and they are set to read a predetermined tire pressure. With the larger tires installed and running the higher pressure it sends a signal that your tires are running to high a pressure thus all the alarms signaling impending tire failure. You can change the tire pressure sensors or remove them. Best bet is to take the vehicle back to the tire shop you purchased from and let them make the correction for you. They deal with this scenario all the time and can resolve the problem.
