    Same problem- tried to hook up the converter box- just got snow and no channels, set up screen etc, Then, the tv just would not turn on any more- hitting the power button does nothing. But there is a high pitch sound from the tv unless I unplug it. Help!

All later TVs are really not 'off' when you turn them off. They have power to some circuits all the time if plugged in, otherwise they could not even respond to an 'on' signal from your remote.
The squealing you are all hearing is from a dying 'switched mode' power supply and is normally caused by a ferrite-core transformer running at the wrong frequency and complaining about it. The problem with them is almost certain to be caused by failed or failing electrolytic capacitors (cheap to replace) but continued  attempted operation could cause further damage.
This problem is common enough that any half-way competent tech with a capacitance meter could weed out the culprits pretty quick.
I'm tempted to suggest you get these repaired if they were otherwise satisfactory since the flat panels too often seem to only survive the warranty.
If I was doing the repair, I would give you an estimate of under $75. US

When my rca 36F530 tv is plugged in it makes a high pitched buzzing noise picture does not come on


There is a short circuit in the high voltage circuit. the transformer who helps to create the high voltage or his power transistor is damage. replacement needed. the repair is not expensive, because the parts are average repair. Ask for an estimate.

High pitch noise


Hello,

Sorry to hear about your issue, let me see if I can help.

What type of tv is this? tube or flat panel? If tube, have you recently moved it and shook it up a little?
If panel, are you using an hdmi hookup or just regular cable from a cable box?

Be sure that your hookups are on tightly and that your cables are not tangled as well especially hdmi cable. Let me know if any of this is helpful in solving your issue or if I can be of more assistance. Once you respond I can help more, just need more information..

Thanks,
d

Trouble turning on tv. High pitched noise/click.


The mainboard might have some loose components, or cold solder , or may be the filter capacitors are becoming faulty. Yes it is worth repairing, bring it to the repair shop. Cheers.

TV screen wont turn on but just a loud noise coming from the tv


I think maybe the G-board needs to be replaced. A TV shop will have to repair it. They normally start around $200.00

High Pitched Noise


most high pitch noise comes from the anode conection on the picture tube thats connected to the flyback anode cap thats mean there is a high voltage leak,to stop the noise you can discharge the high voltage take off the cap and clean with alcohol.if the noise continue.you will have to put some red or clear silicone both the cap and tube stick together leave to dry for about 2 to 4 hrs.this will eliminate the leaking.good luck.

TV won't stay turned on, no picture, started making high pitched noise


That high pitched noise you're hearing is the power supply telling you that it has too much of a load on it and lowered its operating frequency which in effect cuts its output way down! Normally you don't hear any thing since the power supply operates at a frequency that's beyond human hearing. In an RCA this indicates more than likely that your horizontal output transistor is shorted and this short was caused by the flyback transformer shorting. This is a common happening with RCA's You'd need to take to a tv shop and have it checked out. Stargazer
