    I have an OLD (circa 1980) 45 inch mits projection tv. About 2 years ago, we replaced it with their current 45 inch non-hd model because the red convergence on only the right side of the tv was off. We put the TV in the basement, and its worked fine up until last week..........

    The power button on the front broke long ago, so I plugged in the TV and tried to turn in on from across the room with the remote. When I pushed power, the tv started the making the most heinous clicking sound I have ever heard, and apparently, others in the house heard it coming from their TV's as well. I quickly turned the TV off and ran and unplugged it. Does anyone know what happened (and more importantly, how to fix it)? Did my innocent TV turn into ticking bomb?

    I don't think you have to worry about it exploding, but it does sound like the internal power supply is having some serious doubts of whether it wishes to come out of retirement.
