Re: Power ON: Only sound is chirping sound-No picture

The chirping inside this set is an indication that theres a short in the set, and is loading down the switch mode power supply. This is not a job or the lay or handi person. Your going to need to know how to troubleshoot solid state electronics, and use a multi-meter. Your also going to need to use a schematic to trace where the short is. Please seek out a pro to assist you in this repair.

Rca hd52w59 chirping sound and light 3 times no picture

chirping sound is a short of some kind, could be the flyack or horizontal output, could also be a bad picture tube or power supply capacitors, you really need a tv repairman to troubleshoot this.

No picture, no sound, just chirping noise coming from back

NO - - signal did nothing to the set... Sounds like a shorted HOT (horizontal output transistor) and the feedback your hearing (chirp) is on the horz. transformer as it tries repeatedly to startup... Don't allow it to do that for too long...

No picture or sound - TV makes chirping noise

The chirping sound is the power supply coming up then breaking down because there is a short somwhere in the high voltage. The most common fail in this area is the horizontal output is shorted ( 237470 ) but what cause this short could be simple cold solder joints or the High voltage transformer ( 239111 ) If you have noway to "ring" the flyback change both parts

Chirping noise

Sounds like something may be shorted out inside keeping the power supply loaded enough it wont start, dont recommend trying to fix unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing, there are some high voltages inside, I wold Call a TV tech out to repair, Just FYI, these sets from Phillips/MAG usually have CRT fluid getting cloudy causing discoloration/fog to pix around this age and older, between both repairs, some sets start around $1000, just an idea.

Please Help!

A chirping sound from a TV set is the switch mode power supply trying to start up, but gets shut down because of a major short inside the set or in one of the circuits.. Most likly in this set, the horizontal output transistor is shorted because of a defective flyback transformer. Thats whats the common problem is with this set. A repair like this, if this is the only parts that are bad, will run you about 300 to 400 bucks or so. In some cases, not many but a few times, I have seen poor solder connections on L401 cause the horizontal output transistor to go bad. There are no user replacable parts inside this set, so please play it safe and seek out a pro to assist you in this repair. Good luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.

PT-43LC14 No Picture, chirping sound when turned on

Most of the time, when there is a chirping comming from a TV set, there is a short somewhere inside the TV set. That chirping noise is the TV's power supply starting up and shutting down because of a heavy load on the power supply. These sets have no user replaceable parts inside them, so play it safe, and call out a pro to assist you in this repair. good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.
