Question about RCA D61W20 61" Rear Projection Television

Tv makes high pitch noise

My tv is around two years old. A few months ago it started making a high pitch noise. Sometimes you can turn the tv off and back on and the noise will stop but not always. A repair shop said it was most likey the flyback, and it might be repairable without replacing it, their labor rate was to much (200-300 hundred) plus with the amount of time we would spend without our tv, we would like to try to repair it our selves. How do you repair a noisey flyback? Is there any way to get a diagram? My husband thinks he could repair it if he had instructions.

Re: Tv makes high pitch noise

Seems like your television is doing the same thing as mine. I dont have a resolution but this may help from it clonking out completly. Leave it alone for now. My television started doing this months ago and I rarely even used it for the first two years due to deployment. One day it startd the high pitch, and i ignored it because i rarely turned it on besides when company came. About a month later it completly clunked out. Now i only get the green power light. NO pic, No volume or anything. Just that loud screech. Eventually it will go out, causing more problems. Usually you can go to a repair shop, get the piece name from them and then order and fix it yourself. The shop is going to do the same thing as you will, except charge you more for having ordereing it when you can do so yourself. Shops here charge about $60 bucks to let you know what it is... Shouldnt be a big change where you are.

Toshiba HD ready TV ct 90158 makes high pitched sound

A high pitch sound can be a capacitor losing power it would sound a bit like a fire work. most have back up on the board but it put more pressure on them the more times you use the tv. would check them and replace. all of them can be 5 in a row in some models.

I have Samsung DLP TV 50 inch HL-P5063W

First thing to look at is the color wheel this model uses--usually it will make a high pitched fan like sound but can make a grinding sound also.

If it slows down from the 12,000 or so RPM speed it will cause color issues.

TV making high pitch sound

Hi, There are usually 1 or 2 fans inside the TV's. Could be worn bearings, or fan blade interference. Sorry, without my electric ear working, I can only guess.

Samsung LNT3253H is making a high-pitched noise

I had the same issue. The tech that came out today removed the transformer on the power supply board, "resealed" it, and replaced it (re-soldered the same part back on) -- the transformer apparently vibrates because it was not properly sealed. BTW, mine was about the fifteenth that he has performed this repair on within the past couple of months -- all 32" and 26" Samsungs. Now, it appears to be absolutely silent.

Phillips 54 inch rear projection,no picture.

One thing that comes to mind when you say high pitched sound is the HOT ( Horizontal Output Transistor). You may be able to find one at fry's electronics. They are pretty cheap. If you are handy and know something about electronics you may be able to replace it. I am not a TV tech, I have a background in electronics and like to play with them from time to time. Not sure this will help but good luck
