Re: high pitch ringing noise and picture distortion

Sounds like the capacitor that goes bad just before the hIgh Voltage transformer goues bad. If i were you I would call an authorized RCA repair Shope and see if this is going to cause more damage to your set in the future.

Wont turn on ,bulb ok what next

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it : Any buzzing,humming,or high pitch sounds? If you do it could be an issue with the color wheel.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises.
