    I've had my 2nd LED display for about a week now, and i've noticed a certain clicking noise that comes on around 15 minutes after i turn the display on, and lasts about 1 hour to 1.5 hours after turning it on. It comes from the display every 10-15 seconds (it is not too loud and only noticeable under quiet conditions). Does anyone else notice this issue?

    Mine does that too... I posted at the Apple site that it's probably due to heat expansion or something... just a guess though.

    Note: I got a replacement due to backlight bleed, and the new one doesn't click anymore.

    The reason why it make that clicking noise is because your room is too cold for your display.

    When you bring your LED ACD in from the chilly outdoors, don't start it until it reaches room temperature. Otherwise, condensation could wreak havoc on its circuits.

    I don't take my LED ACD around with me in my backpack. Also, my room is 65 degrees fahrenheit, which is close to room temperature.

    I think it's caused by a combination of temperature and a faulty display. My replacement display is in the same room as the old one, the same temperatures too, and it hasn't clicked once.
