    My TH42PX60 is about 6 months old.

    It occasionally & intermiitantly makes an irritating "clicking" noise when it is on - it is a similar clicking sound to when the TV gets turned on.
    When turned on it clicks twice, however the click i hear is a single click.

    It happens every so often - does anyone know what this is or do your sets do the same?
    Some forums indicate it may be the relays in the TV - perhaps mine are faulty.

    thanks

    I think this happens rarely when it's checking for Freeview Digital Channel Updates, but I could be wrong.

    I've only heared this when my PX60 has been in standby.

    Best wishes,

    Paul.

    its pretty irritating - just don't know if it is a fault or normal. (I doubt it is normal)
    The last thing I want is that this leads to a bigger problem when I am out of warranty.

    I may try calling Panasonic support later on.

    When I searched on Google, I found this link:

    I've never heared it whilst being on.

    It's just been very occasionaly whilst in standby, usually in the early hours, that's why I asumed mine was checking for updates, as I know it can update whilst in standby.

    Give them a call to reassure yourself, you normally get the warning light on the front of tv if there's a problem, but it shouldn't click whilst on.

    Best wishes,

    Paul.
