My TV will not turn on but when it is plugged in it makes a clicking noise? All I did was turn it off the night before and when I went to turn back on in the morning nothing happened other then the clickin noise when it is plugged in.

It sounds like a power capacitor problem. Samsung sets have been plagued with the problem since 2008. Technically, fixing the problem is quite simple but you might want to contact a repairman.

It is highly likely because of the capacitor in the power circuit. A class action was filed for that issue and samsung promised make compensation for the repair only for limited models. Check if your TV is one of them. I'll link the article. Theses are the 2008 models but more recent models might have the same problem in the future considering that capacitor defect can be found 3~4 years later.
