    I have a 1989 Mitsu projection tv model VS-5002R (51")
    that won't come on. It makes a clicking sound like it's

    This model suffers from vertical failure associated with a defective cap in
    the power supply.
    A known failure mode and a kit is available from Mits to overcome this
    There is also another problem associated with the horizontal driver
    You would be best advised to unplug the set and have it serviced before the
    CRT's are ruined from repeated attempts to turn it on.
    There will also be quite a number of leaky caps in different areas of the
    circuits that will need replacing to circumvent future failures.

    Good Luck,
    Bill Jr
