This is a very common problem, caused by failure of IC MM201 (usually located on the plug-in board containing the IF can, which you should also repair as long as you're taking the board out; solder connections commonly fail on this board causing intermittent or total loss of tuner video). The high-pitch whistle's the most common symptom, but it can cause a number of things. Any time there's a sound problem such as low or distorted sound, whistles, static, etc, change the IC. It's available from MCM Electronics for about $15 There is a kit of surface-mount caps available which supposedly will repair these little buggers. It's not worth the time and effort, just put in a new one. BTW, replacing the part is not difficult, but does require soldering skills. If you're not comfortable with soldering, you could remove the entire circuit panel (I believe the M board) and take it to a shop. If you call around, you should be able to find a servicer to replace the part for a nominal fee.

High-pitched chirp at same time every night

High pitch noises are very difficult to isolate. Since you have replaced the refrigerator, I would look for something else in the immediate vicinity that might be generating the sound.

Sometimes High pitching its just that, static on the area, like if you are near a microwave, or near other electronic equipments, but, if the skreetching sound keep going or even if you do nothing it could be a line inside the sound card, or you need to clean the volume botton with special electrical cleaner. other that these, its contacts, or bad cap for the volume board inside.
Good Luck!

High pitch sound

If the sound goes away when you turn it off, its the colorwheel. If it keeps running for another 1-2 minutes (cooldown) then its a fan. Both are changeable by a technical person, the colorwheel being much more intensive disassembly. Let me know if you need help there.
