Hi Guys,
My LG plasma makes a click sound when turned on.
Has any one else noticed this?
Is this normal?

Thanks

Is it a button-click 'I am turning on' sound.. or a click 'I am about to blow up' sound?

:)

You need to explain more.. where does it sound like it's coming from?

Dont know about LG TV's But i know my 2 Samsung plasmas make a noticable "click" sound when turning on (which is completly normal). Might be a plasma thing..?

@ZollyMonsta, i will try to explain..
I normally have the TV Turned off at the wall
When i need to watch it, i power it on
[i do have sky]
when i press the "select input" button on the remote, there is a minute "clickety click" sound which appears to be coming from the top left back side...
hope this explains it

Not sure if its a fault or not.. My Samsung (just like firefuze's) clicks a couple of times, as per normal, when it's started up from standby..

What model is it?
How old?

A few more details may clue us in a little bit :-)

My Panasonic does it also - it is just a plasma thing I think.

I have a Pannasonic LCD that does this (when turning on from standby) and a Pioneer amp that does exactly the same.

I think it's normal or not to be worried about anyway.
