Picture went out and all the tv does is make a buzzing sound

I was watching a football game Sunday afternoon and the picture went out on my TV. The sound was there, but no picture. Then after a minute of that, the sound was gone and a humming noise started. I unplugged the tv, then plugged it back in and the same humming noise. While plugged in, none of the buttons work on the remote control or the on the tv. You can't turn the humming off unless you unplug it. So, I waited 24 hours before I plugged it back in and still the same thing. Any recommendations? Thanks

The horizontal output transistor drives a transformer that gives you the high voltage to light up the picture tube,either the transistor or the transformer have gone bad,sometimes both have to be replaced and sometimes the transistor fails for no reason by itself.Be safe and call for help if you are not familiar with tv service.

Tv has picture but no sound !

Tihs would be do to a faulty flyback , A fly back is a circuit board that is on the back of the tube this being replaced will have much better results.

Buzzing after 1 hour

Is the buzzing coming from the back of the TV, staying loud even when the volume is turned all the way down, or is it coming from the speakers?
