As an owner of a Sony Bravia TV, I recently became frustrated when I heard a clicking sound coming from my TV. After doing some research and testing to figure out why this was happening, I wanted to share my experience and the solutions I discovered. In this blog post, I will explain why my Bravia TV is making a clicking sound and how I was able to solve the problem. I will also include other potential solutions that I discovered along the way.
Bravia televisions are not immune to temperature changes, and when the internal parts warm up or cool down, they will begin to let off a clicking, popping, or crackling sound. This is nothing to worry about, and a completely normal thing for electronics to do.
While the clicking sound you hear is probably due to temperature changes, there are a couple of other more problematic issues that can cause your Bravia TV to make these annoying clicks. However, there are a number of things you can do about it.

Why is my Bravia TV making a clicking sound?
The most common cause of your Bravia TV making a clicking sound is due to the natural contraction and expansion of the television’s inner workings.
Like other electronics, televisions are made up of various plastic and metal materials that are affected by temperature fluctuations. When this occurs, it is normal to hear some cracking, popping, or clicking sounds. However, that isn’t the only cause of an annoying clicking sound.
Sometimes, when an Bravia television is experiencing hardware issues, it will start making a clicking sound. This can occur even if the television is otherwise working normally.
Unfortunately, you will need to contact Bravia Support for assistance with hardware problems. They will be able to discuss the matter with you, troubleshoot the problem, and then create a solution to help get your television working properly once again.
A common problem with LCD televisions is that the capacitors on the power board can go bad.
A tell tale sign of bad capacitors is that the television makes a clicking sound but won’t turn on.
If you feel comfortable with tackling the problem, you can fix it yourself, though this will require several tools, such as a Bravia Repair kit and soldering iron.
Don’t feel bad if you don’t feel comfortable trying to fix the bad capacitors yourself.
Instead, reach out to a local electronic repair technician or contact Bravia customer assistance.
They can give you a list of repair techs near you that have experience working on Bravia televisions.
How do I fix the clicking noise on my Bravia TV?
If the clicking noise on your Bravia TV is caused by normal temperature changes then there is nothing you can do to fix the problem.
However, the clicking noise should just occur when you first turn the television on or off. If the clicking noise continues to happen even after the television has been on or off for some time, then you probably have a more serious problem on your hands.
Contact Bravia Support
Unfortunately, if the issue is not associated with temperature fluctuations, your best option is to contact Bravia Support for assistance.
In most cases, the television will need to be repaired in order to fix the clicking noise.
The support agent can assist you with determining if the television is still under warranty, as well as locate a repair technician near you.
