Why is my Philips TV making a clicking sound?

As an owner of a Philips TV, I was recently frustrated to discover a clicking sound coming from my TV. After doing some research and testing, I was determined to figure out why my Philips TV was making this noise. Here to share my experience, I have provided a comprehensive blog post on why my Philips TV was making a clicking sound and the solutions I discovered to help resolve the issue.

Philips 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.

Why is my Philips TV making a clicking sound?

The most common cause of your Philips 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.

Hardware Issue

Sometimes, when an Philips 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 Philips 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. 

Bad Capacitors

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 Philips 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 Philips customer assistance.

They can give you a list of repair techs near you that have experience working on Philips televisions. 

How do I fix the clicking noise on my Philips TV?

If the clicking noise on your Philips 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.
