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.

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?

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.

you are correct it is the starter the clicking you hear is the bedix wheel which spins the flywhell to crank the engine. replace the starter and this will solve the problem
