I have the same annoying problem. Our TV was purchased in Nov. 2007. My TV is being repaired for free by Samsung. I followed these online instructions and called 1-800-SAMSUNG. They were VERY nice and helpful.
TV Clicks When Powered On Or Off
It is normal for the TV to click once or twice before powering on or powering off. However, if your TV clicks one or more times and operates abnormally, most likely your TV is malfunctioning. Abnormal operation includes, but is not limited to, the following symptoms:
If your TV exhibits any of the symptoms listed above and clicks, your TV requires service. Please click the Online Service Request button below to begin the service process.
Important: If your TV is clicking and experiencing any of the above abnormal behavior, you may qualify for a free repair. To determine whether or not your TV qualifies, contact us at 1-800-SAMSUNG. Have your full model code and serial number ready.

The guy came to my house and fixed my TV. He was here for less than 15 minutes, and he replaced all the capacitors. My TV has been out of Warranty for 2 years. The repair did not cost a thing!

These can normally be resolved by a Geek Squad in-home tech for $150 total- caps are replaced with higher value upgrades. Please be aware & take caution as there is high voltage present inside TV and large caps which can hold quite a charge even after TV is off, manufacturer recommends servicing by trained service personnel.

Apparently Samsung got a lot of bad capacitors. What has probably happen is the capacitors on the power supply have blown. I just fixed mine for 6 dollars. If you can solder, you can fix it. Capacitors are carried by radio shack and run about 1.5 each. I was not comfortable soldering, so I took it apart and carried the board to a friend that works on electronics and he took to old ones out and put in the new ones. Just put it back together and it works fine.
