Re: <<<>>

Yep its a high voltge arc. You may also spell a strange ozone odor.
Turn off the lights and see if you can see it it arking inside the set. Sometimes its fixable by putting silicon over a crack or cleaning off dust but sometimes its inside the High Voltage flyback and it needs to be replaced.

Beware the tube can hold 30kv for months so dont touch the high voltage wiring unless its discarged.

Re: <<<>>

Sounds like you have a high voltage arc if the sound is not coming through the speakers. Possibly the high voltage leads are not pushed in all the way. Be careful! Make sure the set is off and you may also want to ground these leads before you touch them. Youcan get a nasty shock if you don't.

If you locate the audio board, check for dried up electrolytic capacitors and dry joints around the output IC itself.
That should fix your fault.

it could one of two things. The power supply is failing which is most common. Or the picture tube is gone. Both would most likely cost you more to fix than the TV is worth. Call around and get a few quotes. Good luck

More than likely, someone short circuited inside the TV.

The short term solution is to take it to a TV repair person (or in this case have them come to you).

The long term solution is to get a dog and get rid of the cat. The dog will be more loving, won't cause anybody to have an allergy attack when the visit you and will stay off of the TV. ;)

Same problem, high pitched noise over regular sound and no pictur

No guarantees with this diagnosis. But it sounds like an HT ( high tension) leak This is often caused by the lead becoming partly unplugged ( being bumped or moved) and because of dust buildup it arcs making a high pitched hissing whistle.Ther lamp may also have been affected by the HT leak. The safest option for you is to call a service technician to it, as opening it up could cosntitute a a danger to the unskilled.

Buzzing sound

You haven't specified where the buzzing sound is coming from, if it is coming from speakers, changing capacitors in the audio section will fix the problem, especially the filters. Now if it sounds like a hissing sound from back of the tv, the CRT base socket is the culprit. It is an easy thing to fix, and the base is cheap, but make sure you purchase the exact same type of base or it will harm the CRT. Good luck.

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
