Question about Bush WS6671 28" TV

Occasional 'whistling/whining' from back of TV

There is a high pitched whistling sound from the back of the TV. It occurs after the TV has been switched on for a few hours. It is a similar sound to a 'worn' power valve from old TV times. I fixed that by tapping the top of the valve to discharge the gas (so I am told!) When I waggle the AV1 scart at the back of the TV the noise varies in pitch and sometimes stops altogether (although more often than not the noise comes back again. It is almost as though there is a whisker of wire shorting out. Sometimes it is louder and higher pitched than others. There is also a low pitched continual buzz (not a hum) from the TV but this is not loud enough to be annoying as you have to get quite close to the TV to hear it. It can get worse if the DVD is switched on but judicious manoevering of the DVD minimises the effect (electro-mechanical/magnetic interference possibly?) However if the TV is left alone the high pitched whistle goes away of it's own accord; usually after 20-30 minutes. The TV is just over 1 year old. Any ideas for a, preferably cheap, solution.

Re: Occasional 'whistling/whining' from back of TV

I wonder if there is enough air circulating around your equipment?? My DVD recorder makes a sound unless I open the doors on the cabinet that contains all of my equipment. The cable company says it is a fan to cool down the units.

Super high pitch whistle from tv, only powering it off helps.

Shut it off and unplug. You have a serious HIGH VOLTAGE problem that could cause a fire. Professional repair needed.

RCA F32650 production May 2003. Was working fine. Turned it on the next day, got no picture and a high pitched whining noise.  Please let me know what I should do to fix it.

If it weren't for the high pitch whining noise. I would say it probably is an internal fuse inside the chasis. It is rated at 1.5 to 2.0 amps. With the whining noise it sounds like a trouble shooting bench
job. Problems occur when a electrical/electronics device is turned on and turned off. Inrush voltage,
when it is turned on, can go up to three times more than normal. This also happens at turn off. Solid state components usually fail at this time. I don't feel that this is a problem that can be fixed in the home.---BBB

Samsung SlimFit 30" high pitch whining noise

I have had the same high pitch tone problem for several months after about 20 minutes of use. It is so bad it's rendered the TV almost unwatchable. I contacted a repair place from Samsung's website. I was told that is likely the flyback transformer. I don't know what it is, but it sounds cool like a flux capacitator. I was told it would be about $100 to fix. However, I have had very little luck getting the repair shop to order the part and do the work.

Television won't power up

It sounds like the high voltage circuit got damp and arced. This arc caused the horizontal output transistor to short.
You might try replacing the output transistor if you're experienced in this type of repair. If not then you need to take it to a repair shop.
The "whistle " you're hearing is the power supply indicating that it has a short on its load. When the power supply has an over load (short) its frequency drops down when your ear can hear it oscillating. This type of power supply is a switching power supply normally operating a several thousand hz(cycles) which is out of range of human hearing.

27 inch tube tv won't stay on

You have a problem is in your horizontal section which also is part of your power supply. The high pitched whine is from the Intergrated High voltage transformer (also called the flyback transformer). This sound occurs when the freuency of the transformer changes and or the voltage gets too high. The click occurs as a result of the drawing of excessive current by the HOT Horizontal output transistor. This is repairable, but requires the correct equipment and a schematic.

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
