It could be the fan since many modern fans are speed controlled and fed with chopped voltage with a frequency of a couple of kilohertz which we would interpret as a squeal.
It could also be the impending failure of one of the power circuits which when approaching failure may emit noise in the audible range although they typically operate well above our hearing. 
I'm not sure about your set and don't have time to research it right now, but many of the rear projection units have a color wheel that also turns at a high rate and from what I know of them, they are fairly costly to replace.
Those three are possible suspects and of them, only the fan replacement is something the average owner can deal with.

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,


5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Thanks.

Tv won't turn on red lights blinking


You are hearing the spark gap mounted on the lamp ballast board. If you can hear that sound, that means everything in the lamp driver circuit is working except the lamp!

Get a new lamp.
