Re: High pitch noise when tv warms up

High pitch noise is created mostly by a Coil or a transformer,is not easy finding the source if you are not familiar with this type of coil since there many sizes and shapes,the set needs to be on while trying to find wich part is doing it SO if you dont know where and how better call a Technician and you will be safe.
